ISKANDAR PUTERI: The first batch of students from University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) have graduated at the university's campus in Educity here.

The 11 students, who began their undergraduate programme in Finance and Business Management at Henley Business School Malaysia at UoRM in September 2014, received their degrees on Saturday.

Nine other Malaysian graduates completed their undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at University of Reading's main campus in Britain.

During the inaugural ceremony, UoRM also awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws to Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) chief executive officer Datuk Ismail Ibrahim.

He joins the university's community of more than 275,000 alumni across 150 countries and a roll of noted honorary graduates including British High Commissioner to Malaysia Vicki Treadell, who received her doctorate from the university last year.
