The University of Wollongong in Dubai announced today at its Knowledge Village campus that 41 students had achieved the honour of being nominated to the Dean's Merit List 2003 and that two students were given upgraded scholarships in recognition of their results. Also, six continuing students were awarded new scholarships recognizing their outstanding academic performance over the last year. The Dean's Merit List is an annual list comprised of students who achieved grades in the top 5% in their faculty. It is compiled from students studying courses worldwide offered by the University's partner, the University of Wollongong Australia. "The University is thrilled that so many talented students have achieved this high recognition of achievement," CEO Professor Stephen Martin said. "It emphasizes the University's primary goal of providing quality education." "I too congratulate the students for setting this example of high achievement," Dean Academic Affairs Dr Raed Awamleh said. "It is testimony to the dedication of students and our highly skilled and motivated faculty." Two current students, Samar Elkhaldy and Shivani Agarwala, received upgraded scholarships from 50% to 100% in recognition of their outstanding grades. "The University believes in rewarding success. These two students are to be commended on their achievement," Professor Martin said. Dr Awamleh noted that three students on the list, Amita Gandhi, Deepak Sawlani and Huzaifa Alotwala, were currently completing their degrees at the University of Wollongong in Australia.
