Victoria University (VU) celebrated the achievements of graduating students from our offshore partner colleges and universities at a ceremony in China on Sunday 6 July 2014.
Almost 100 graduates received a VU qualification from one of our well-established Chinese partner institutions with the majority being from the Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE).
A delegation of VU staff including the Vice-Chancellor Peter Dawkins, senior staff and academics attended the ceremony and were joined by representatives from our partner institutions including representatives from CUFE, Liaoning University and Henan University.
This year’s events in China coincide with the 15th anniversary of our partnership with Liaoning. In the days following the Graduation Ceremony in Beijing, the Vice-Chancellor travelled to Shenyang to meet with the President of Liaoning University to sign a new agreement.
Valedictorian Mr Liu Naiguang, Bachelor of Business (Financial Risk Management/International Trade) spoke with great enthusiasm about his experience at CUFE. He will next study at New York University but has hopes of pursuing post-graduate study at Victoria University.
On the evening prior to the graduation VU staff met with over 200 Chinese Alumni for the annual VU China Alumni Celebration at the Grand Ballroom in Beijing.
This strong engagement with graduates from the north of Asia allows them to network with other professionals, get valuable career advice and participate in lifelong learning.
