Professor Brigid Daniel, Dean of Arts, Social Sciences and Management at Queen Margaret University (QMU) was delighted to officiate in overseas graduation ceremonies at QMU’s partner institutions in India and Nepal last week.

QMU operates a number of teaching partnerships with organisations in Scotland, across the UK and around the world. Through the trans-national partnerships, students can study for qualifications in a manner and at a location most convenient to them, whilst having the status of a degree awarded by Queen Margaret University. Around 3,000 students currently study with QMU in this way.

On Wednesday 19 June, Professor Daniel visited the Institute for Technology and Management (ITM) in Navi Mumbai, India, to officiate at its convocation ceremony, and on Sunday 23 June, Professor Daniel attended the Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management’s graduation ceremony in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Professor Daniel said: “We are extremely proud of our international education partnerships and of our strong relationship with ITM and Silver Mountain, who work hard alongside QMU’s staff to create outstanding learning opportunities for their students. We are very proud of our new graduates who are now an important part of our international alumni family, spanning over 90 countries, and we look forward to learning what they go on to accomplish following graduation.”

QMU is a university without borders and with several partnerships in India, as well as Greece, Singapore and Egypt, we are committed to enhancing and expanding our trans-national collaborations.
