Professor Elvis Nyarko, the Vice Chancellor of Regional Maritime University (RMU) has assured graduates Students that the University will provide all the necessary learning and practical facilities to ensure their successful training.

He said the University was a melting pot, indicating that they have come from different backgrounds, institutions and communities to pursue their ambitions as students.
He said one unique thing about being a postgraduate student was that they have already experienced and successfully managed the transition to university life and all that goes with that and they know what was expected of them.
“Therefore, as postgraduate students, you have mastered the demands of university learning and you now have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge while at the same time encountering new bodies of knowledge and school of thought to which you were not exposed to during your undergraduate studies, “he added.
He encouraged Graduate Students to use the time to refine their skills as well as gain the mastery of their subject areas for their future endeavours.
