Event in Trinidad and Tobago celebrates world-class academic success
A celebration of success at the highest level of international education is to be marked in Port of Spain, Trinidad on the afternoon of Saturday 25 April, coinciding with 50 years of Media and Communication degrees from the University of Leicester.
Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) Professor Martin Halliwell (pictured) will present Master’s degree certificates to 33 graduands of the University as part of SBCS’s graduation ceremony at 4pm on 25 April.
The SBCS is a multi-campus training education and training institution founded in 1987 that aims to play a major role in transforming and advancing the lives of people from and living in the Caribbean.
In addition, the University of Leicester is holding a celebration for its alumni and graduands in Trinidad and Tobago, marking over a decade that the University has been providing degrees in the Caribbean in collaboration with SBCS.
This networking event is at 6pm on Thursday 23 April in the Hyatt’s Lobby Lounge.
On his visit to the Caribbean Professor Halliwell is also visiting the University of the West Indies in Jamaica to develop research collaborations with colleagues in the humanities and social sciences. This follows President Obama’s historic visit to UWI last week, during which he addressed students on new global opportunities for young leaders in the region.
