“I’m incredibly proud of our graduates and wish them the best, whether they are starting their careers or moving onto a higher level of study.” says UCOL Chief of Operations Lyal French-Wright.
“I would also like to acknowledge the work of UCOL’s academic and professional staff who taught, guided, and supported these graduates during their time at UCOL. Graduates often speak highly of the support they received from UCOL staff, whether that’s our expert lecturers or our Student Success team.”
