On Saturday 13 November, graduates, their families and friends traveled to Prague and met at the National House in Vinohrady to celebrate the successful completion of studies.
PCU was thrilled to be able to hold a full graduation ceremony after last year’s scaled back event. In addition, the university was honoured to have in attendance the Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive of Teesside University, Professor Paul Croney who awarded Master’s and Bachelor’s students their degrees, alongside PCU President Douglas Hajek.
Graduating on Saturday were 168 students, 95 of whom made it to the ceremony. In addition to Master’s and Bachelor’s graduates were Foundation Diploma and Higher National Diploma graduates.
Bc. Specialized Education
For the first time in PCU’s history, twenty one graduates received their Bc. Specialized Education degree from the Dean of the School of Education, Zdeněk Starý. The graduates had completed their studies with Akcent College and were excited to meet again and finally receive their Czech-accredited degree.
