791 graduate at LUCT

MASERU – A TOTAL of 791 students graduated with Honors and Associate degrees at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) in Maseru last Thursday. Those who graduated were from the faculties of Communication, Media and Broadcasting, Business Management and Globalisation, Information and Communication Technology, Design and Innovation, Creativity in Tourism, Hospitality as well as Architecture and Build Environment.

Deputy Prime Minister Monyane Moleleki said the university is a unique global institution that offers a portfolio of courses directly relevant to the economies of developing nations like Lesotho. He added that the university has a strong commitment to delivering industry-centric courses and it embraced the TVET (technical, vocational educational training) model of delivery long before it entered the lexicon of common academic parlance.
In this and in many other respects the university was ahead of the times and able to foresee how the future needs of global tertiary education would evolve, he said.

“The university is creating a giant educational footprint across the African continent,” Moleleki said.
He said the success of the university has been the result of its having committed and competent members of staff.

The Minister of Education Mokhele Moletsane said the university is a significant strategic partner of the government and of the Ministry of Education.
Moletsane said they have been working closely with the university over the last nine years in charting a new and necessary tertiary education landscape for Lesotho.

He said the class of 2017 “has become part of that innovative and creative paradigm shift in our tertiary education”.
He implored the students “in all earnest to emulate and replicate what you have learned and skills you have acquired at Limkokwing when you get to the public and private service so that you translate the very paradigm shift to the service of the nation”.

“Do not only be the change you want to see but be the change that Lesotho wants to see,” Moletsane said.
Metsing Molupe was the top student in the Bachelor of (Hons) Degree in Broadcasting and Journalism.
He received a book prize from thepost newspaper and a cheque for M2 500.

Queen ’Masenate Mohato Seeiso presented the certificates and prizes to the high achievers, to recognise their exceptional performances at the university in different categories. The LUCT is a global university with a universal presence across three continents, with over 30 000 students from more than 150 countries studying in its 12 campuses in Botswana, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lesotho, Malaysia, Swaziland, United Kingdom and Sierra Leone.
