Welcome Message from the Vice-Rector

Dear Students

We are delighted with your decision to join Philips University. We hope that your time with us will be a happy and productive one and that you will thrive on all the benefits that the University promises to offer.

Our aim is to provide a stimulating environment, state-of-the-art resources and a curriculum designed to help students gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need for a rewarding career.

We strive to encourage students to engage in an in-depth and open exchange of ideas. We endeavour to teach students unconventional ways of thinking about the realities that they are bound to face in their future professional lives. We want to encourage them to express their opinion based on the solid foundation of their studies and own research.

Philips University takes pride not only in the quality of teaching but also in research and scholarship of its academics, all of whom are at your disposal to provide you with a comprehensive and inclusive educational experience.

It is also our responsibility to advance the University’s mission, to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.

Academic excellence is what we strive to achieve. Our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are unique and focus on the expressed needs of society and industry. We will continue to grow and enrich our research competency, to attract undergraduate and postgraduate students, strengthen our international influence through global partnerships, enhance the quality of academic and extra-curricular student experience, expand our capacity by investing in new facilities and technologies.

The need to provide and receive education is imperative and we must continue to draw from the wealth of innovative teaching and research methods in order to convey the knowledge and experience that Philips University academics have to offer.  With the co-operation and effort of both our academics and students, we can provide and receive quality education and realise that we can prosper within any given challenge.

Philips University encourages any student in need to come to us to ask for help and advice.  Our duty to you is not just to impart knowledge but also to offer pastoral care to every one of our students.  Our door is always open to any student in need of help.

Our best wishes for a rewarding and fulfilling experience at Philips University!

Vice – Rector for Academic Affairs
