The Centre for International Education (CIE), has organised the 2018/2019 “End-of-Year-Dinner and Awards Night” for International students in the University.
In his opening remark at the function, the Dean of CIE, Prof. Rosemond Boohene, said the programme was organised to honour outstanding international students who had excelled academically and in various ways. She added that the programme was to give international students the opportunity to socialise among themselves and University Management. “We have our students at heart because we churn them out to be creative for growth; curators and compassionate through internationalisation” he noted.
Prof. Boohene said the experiences they had gone through at UCC should propel them to excel wherever they find themselves after graduation. “We are happy you are here. You have shared the semester with us. We know you have had bad experiences and good experiences but I believe that is the reason why you moved to other countries,” she added. She wished the students well in their end of semester examinations.
The function was chaired by Prof. Sarah Darkwah of the Department of Vocational and Technical Education and it was graced by the Director of Academic Affairs, Mr. Jeff Teye Onyame; Prof. Lina Banks, Patron of International Students Association; Dr. Alex Azuka Ilechie, Assistant Registrar, CIE, Mr. Alfred Ghartey and the Assistant Registrar, Public Relations and Protocol Section, Mr. Felix Adu-Poku.
