GBS EVENTS

Celebrating success

July 2022 Graduations

The value of learning and recognition are both vital elements of the student journey here at GBS. We aspire to change lives through education one day at a time, so when the time comes to honour all the hard work and dedication from our students at their graduation ceremonies – we always do it in style.

Our HND Business students and their families were invited to special ceremonies across the UK in London, Birmingham, and Manchester to show our appreciation for their great accomplishments.

Moments like this go beyond highlighting academic achievement, as we understand how valuable transformative education can be in changing lives far beyond the classroom.

GBS congratulates all the graduates in HND in Business at our UK campuses, GBS wishes each of you all the best as you go forward in your journeys.
