H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member, Ruler of Sharjah and President of the University of Sharjah, attended the graduation ceremony of 259 students of the university’s spring 2018 class, at the University City Hall.
In the presence of H.H. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, and H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, Sheikh Sultan stated that the university has developed its academic and learning programmes and implemented several urban and infrastructure projects, to reach the prestigious stature it desires.
''We have instructed the English Language Centre, ELC, to offer BAs in other languages. It will start with French and then other languages, including German and Chinese,'' Sheikh Sultan said.
Sheikh Sultan also announced the launch of two platforms, one for male students and the other for female students, to improve their academic, cultural and social interactions. ''The two platforms will be connected with covered and air-conditioned passages, to become an ideal and convenient academic environment. The platforms will be ready in six months and will be fitted with comfortable seats, computers and communications services, enabling students to communicate with their families, friends and peers outside the campus,'' he added.
Sheikh Sultan instructed a 50 percent reduction in boarding fees for students, to encourage them to use the university's internal housing and services, creating the appropriate learning environment.
