BOV spon­sors Fac­ulty of Arts top stu­dents

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Six stu­dents read­ing for a de­gree at the Fac­ulty of Arts at the Univer­sity of Malta were awarded a men­tion on the Dean’s List. Bank of Val­letta sup­ported awards to each of these stu­dents dur­ing a brief cer­e­mony, which was ad­dressed by Dean Pro­fes­sor Do­minic Fenech and Joyce Tabone, man­ager at Bank of Val­letta.

The stu­dents who suc­ceeded in hav­ing their name etched on the Dean’s List were Jas­mine Alexia Ba­jada, Sarah De­bono, Tiziana Borg, Samwel Grima, Anna Lom­bardi Cas­sar and Ber­nice Ma­gro. These stu­dents will be grad­u­at­ing in Novem­ber.

Pro­fes­sor Fenech ex­plained that the Dean’s List was re­served for only the very best stu­dents, stress­ing how hard it was to reach a bench­mark of such ex­cel­lence. He noted that in re­cent years the num­ber of stu­dents qual­i­fy­ing for the award was rel­a­tively high, which went to show that at the top end stu­dents’ aca­demic stan­dards were ris­ing. He added that the ad­dresses of the stu­dents awarded showed also that stu­dents from the “south” of Malta, while fewer in terms of num­bers at­tend­ing univer­sity, per­formed as well as any­one else.

Speak­ing dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion, Tabone con­grat­u­lated the stu­dents on their out­stand­ing achieve­ment. “Bank of Val­letta sup­ports a num­ber of ini­tia­tives that recog­nise aca­demic ex­cel­lence and en­cour­age tal­ent. A good aca­demic prepa­ra­tion serves as the foun­da­tion to a suc­cess­ful ca­reer, which in to­day’s world means con­tin­u­ous learn­ing and spe­cial­i­sa­tion.”

At the end of the pre­sen­ta­tion the stu­dents thanked their lec­tur­ers for their care and at­ten­tion and the Fac­ulty of Arts in gen­eral for the strong sup­port it gives to the stu­dents.
