59 to be conferred with degrees at TAU’s 9th graduation exercise

Texila American University (TAU) will host its ninth annual graduation ceremony today at its main campus at Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD).
During the special ceremony, the university will celebrate the graduation of 59 students across various disciplines.
TAU’s guest of honour for the occasion is Human Services and Social Security Minister Dr Vindhya Persaud. TAU’s Founder and Chancellor Saju Bhaskar, and its Executive Vice President Chitra Laksmi, will deliver remarks.
Since commencing operations in 2011, TAU has served as a beacon of world-class medical education and medical research for Guyana and the region.
TAU Founder and Chancellor noted, “TAU remains committed to excellence in higher education, research, and innovation in the medical field. Our graduands are a prime example of these principles, as many of them have achieved placement in residency programmes both locally and abroad, and we know that they are equipped for success.”
This year, TAU will confer the Doctor of Medicine Degree on 28 students, the Master of Business Administration degree on four students, the Bachelor of Nursing in Science degree on three students, and the Bachelor of Public Health degree on 25 candidates in absentia.
TAU said it has acquired a reputation for its cutting-edge facilities and medical curriculum, and its diverse student body continues to expand. TAU is the only private university in the Caribbean region to offer a postgraduate medicine programme.
TAU Guyana offers a series of programmes that are recognised by the National Accreditation Council, including undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, business and management, and information technology. Plans are underway to expand TAU’s programme offerings as the university commits to meeting the needs of Guyana’s growing economy.
