Another milestone for Mcast
The first batch of graduates from the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology received their degrees yesterday, marking a milestone for the college.
Speaking during the ceremony, Stephen Zerafa, an engineering graduate, said it was difficult for him and his course mates to quit their job after they got their higher national diploma to be able to further their studies but, ultimately, they thought it would be a worthwhile step to take.
Mr Zerafa thanked Mcast principal Maurice Grech, “who today is seeing his dream and what he worked for being realised successfully”.
Previously, students at the college had to continue their studies abroad or at the University to be able to get a degree – and often at a hefty price – but in 2008 a vocational degree was introduced, accredited by the college itself.
