24th Edition Sponsored by Bank of Valletta
Raffaello Bezzina, Christabelle Borg, Abigail Deguara, Joseph Tong and Michela Vella made it into this year’s Dean’s List within the Faculty of Arts at the University of Malta.
The Dean’s List is a recognition of excellence with very stringent requirements. This 24th edition was supported by Bank of Valletta who have sponsored each edition since its inception.
The students were presented with a commemorative certificate by Faculty Dean Dominic Fenech and a monetary donation by Claudette Pace, Manager at Bank of Valletta.
‘To be placed on the Dean’s list can be considered as a higher honour than a First Class Degree,’ said Prof Fenech. ‘The criteria for getting in the list are very stringent, with students needing to obtain a Grade ‘A’ in at least 80 credits within the first two years of the course, so there is no space for slacking and then recovering at a later stage.’
‘For the first time, we have three students, Raffaello, Christabelle and Abigail, who were studying the same subject, Maltese, with Joseph studying Spanish and Michela with Linguistics,’ continued the Faculty Dean. ‘
‘It is an honour for us to celebrate these students’ brilliance and hard work,’ stated Ms Pace. ‘At Bank of Valletta we are proud to support an award that promotes such a high level of excellence. We strongly believe that our investment in education, will give our society a greater return in the future.’
