On Friday, March 16, 2018, the graduating students of the University of Buckingham and the University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST) were awarded with their Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the Graduation Ceremony held at the University of Buckingham (UK).
The graduates who expressed their desire to attend the Graduation Ceremony at the University of Buckingham and receive their diplomas there were awarded their degrees at today's ceremony in Buckingham. On this occasion, Dr. Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, welcomed all guests and congratulated the graduating students of both universities on their new academic titles and achievements. The ceremony was graced by the presence of numerous guests from cultural and public life of Great Britain, as well as Mr Emir Ganić, Executive Director and representative of SSST.
Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST) is the only university in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region whose graduates receive an internationally recognized degree. From 2017, our graduates receive their SSST degree and diploma from a very prestigious and respectable university - the University of Buckingham (UK) together at the SSST graduation ceremony traditionally held at the end of September, whereas the graduates who wish to attend the graduation ceremony at the University of Buckingham are welcomed to their annual ceremony in March. The collaboration between these two universities goes back to 2004 when SSST was initially founded. It is a unique partnership in building and maintaining the highest quality and academic standards.
Through cutting edge undergraduate and graduate academic programmes, SSST students acquire specialized knowledge in two fields of expertise (major and minor) and excellent knowledge of English and German. These qualifications significantly increases their competitiveness, not only on the local, but also on the global market.
This is the 10th generation of SSST's graduate students and the 8th generation of its post-graduate students who have also received a degree from this British university.
