GRADUATION 2020 - 2021

Graduation 2021 - 2022

The 2020 and 2021 Classes of Middlesex University Dubai Graduate in Spectacular Style at Dubai Opera

Middlesex University Dubai celebrated its 15th graduation ceremony for the Classes of 2020 and 2021 in spectacular style on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. Allowing over 1,000 students to collect their hard-earned degrees up on stage and in front of their families, friends, classmates and lecturers, the event was a joyous and happy occasion.  

With last year’s 2020 graduation ceremony cancelled due to the pandemic, this special day ensured that no Middlesex student missed out on the chance to have their achievements formally celebrated. Both ceremonies therefore took place on the same day.

The University took the opportunity to recognise some of the institution’s most talented Valedictorians, who all went above and beyond to achieve fantastic results. Students were also honoured with the appearance of special guest Professor Nic Beech, the Vice-Chancellor of Middlesex University in London.

Professor Beech said: “I am delighted to congratulate our Middlesex University graduates in Dubai on their graduation day. After the challenges of the past two years, this is a long-awaited occasion and a celebration which they truly deserve. On behalf of the global Middlesex University community, I was proud to be in attendance supporting the graduates of our largest overseas campus as they begin their exciting careers as members of our international Alumni family.”


Graduation 2021 - 2022

Dr Cedwyn Fernandes, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Middlesex University and Director of Middlesex University Dubai, said: “I was thrilled to welcome our brilliant 2020 and 2021 classes to their long-awaited graduation ceremony and celebrate all they have achieved. Given the delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties and challenges they’ve faced, this graduation feels extra special and meaningful. All our graduates are incredible individuals and I look forward to seeing what amazing things they go on to achieve in the future.”

During the ceremony, the University also honoured HE Dr. Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Aldhaheri, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Founder of Abu Dhabi University, as this year’s Honorary Doctorate recipient. HE Dr. Aldhaheri was named Doctor of the University in recognition of his passion for education and his philosophy of continual learning.

His Excellency said: “I am humbled to be conferred with an Honorary Doctorate from Middlesex University. Education is the foundation of the UAE’s national vision, and I commend Middlesex University Dubai’s success in bringing the benefits of a world-class UK education to students in the UAE. As Chairman of the Board of Directors and Founder of Abu Dhabi University, the UAE’s largest private university, I share in this commitment to lifelong education. I wish wholehearted congratulations to the Middlesex graduates of 2020 and 2021.”

Graduates will now join Middlesex University Dubai’s Alumni Association and become an integral part of the University’s future, as they share their experiences with students who will follow in their footsteps.
