Eighteen students (6 females, 12 males) received first class degrees. Just over half – 308, (55%) are male with the remaining 256 (45.4%) female.

The multiple graduation ceremonies and issuance of transcripts on graduation day at UCU campuses and constituent colleges are convenient to our students who don’t have to travel long distances.
They also allow our students to graduate as and when they finish their courses and in the process facilitate their quicker absorption in the job market.
