More than 300 graduates celebrated one of their most important days at APU with their friends and family on the 21 June 2014, at the Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Happiness and joy appeared on the faces of everyone who attended the event; especially the parents of graduates, who witnessed the success of their children. Representatives from APU’s prestigious partner in education, Staffordshire University, UK, joined us to celebrate the achievements and success of the graduates.

Following the academic procession, words of wisdom were presented by our Vice Chancellor, Prof Les Trustrum and Executive Pro Vice Chancellor of Staffordshire University, Rosy Crehan. On the other hand, the Valedictory Speech presented by Kok Cheng Mun, graduate of B.Sc.
