- 86% of UCM’s degree students achieved a top grade (first or upper second class), which is 10% above the UK standard*
- 12 students achieved first class honours
UCM is very pleased with the results this year, Gail Corrin, Higher Education Development Manager at UCM said, “We are very delighted with our degree students’ results, as it is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Congratulations to all of them! This also demonstrates the quality of teaching at UCM, where all of our lecturers are practitioners in their specialist fields.”
Gail commented that the benefits of studying at a higher level on the island have provided a viable option for residents to progress in their education and career, which may have also contributed to the increasing interest from international students wanting to study on the Isle of Man.
“We continue to have a great number of students through our higher education courses; in addition to the excellent results, doing a degree on the Isle of Man provides excellent value for money compared to off-island options, and having family and friends close to support students is certainly a great advantage too.”
“Not only that, due to our close ties with local and international businesses, our students are able to gain valuable practical skills and experience through internships and work placements,” Gail added, reinforced by the fact that 91% of UCM students gain relevant employment on or before they graduate.
