University of Melbourne
Congratulations on achieving your degree. The education you have received in studying for this degree will stand you in good stead in whatever career you take in the future.
Successfully completing a degree is well worth taking the time to celebrate. It is the culmination of lot of hard work over a long duration of time, in what are already hectic and heavily committed lives. It recognises also the significant personal sacrifices that you - and just as importantly others who are close to you - have had to make to enable you to succeed.
It is important that you and members of your family take the opportunity to celebrate the success that these sacrifices have achieved.
Receiving your degree through U21Global is especially worth celebrating. You receive a degree that is backed by some of the leading universities around the world. The universities whose crests appear on your testamur are consistently ranked among the world’s top research intensive universities as measured by a number of international agencies, including the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities. This endorsement is very special as it signals to employers and colleagues the quality of education provided.
Your degree is also testimony to the innovative approach to tertiary education that U21Global has pioneered in partnership with participating members of the international network of Universitas 21 universities. This emphasis on innovation is deliberately designed to equip graduates with contemporary knowledge and skills so they are better able to succeed in the twenty-first century knowledge economy.
Since its establishment more than ten years ago, U21Global has enrolled 9000 students across 72 countries. This provides confirmation of recent surveys on online education, which have reported that not only is online education rapidly increasing in popularity, it is now providing a quality of teaching and learning that is commensurate with traditional campus-based education.
At U21Global, we believe that we have been pioneers in providing the highest quality of education in an online environment.
You also are pioneers. When you started your U21Global degree, online education was not as well developed as it is now, and a consortium-based degree was a new idea. You are now an integral part of this success story. We trust that this success will not stop here. We look forward to hearing about your progress and your successes in your current and future employment.
I wish you all the very best for the future, both personally and professionally.
