Geomon Joseph Foundation
The credit for UKCBC’s quality of excellence could not have been possible without the driving force that was Geomon Joseph, who envisioned this around two decades back with a college based in London, with one building floor and about 40 students. Eighteen years ago, he set out to empower the less privileged and socially disadvantaged students by quick yet efficient upskilling through vocational courses offered by UKCBC. The UK campus has grown along with our students and now with multiple campuses we offer university courses right up to post graduation level in partnership with the University of West London from our London campus. His vision enveloped a sustainable and student-focused teaching model, and over the years, that mission has continued unfalteringly. The Dubai campus, in line with the vision of our founder, has focussed on quality education at affordable prices. This approach has ensured that our students are well received by the industry and by many universities both in Dubai and abroad for progressions to their graduate programs*
Though Mr Geomon is no longer with us, his dreams will live on through the Geomon Joseph Foundation, the scholarships it offers, his family, our staff and most importantly the students who have benefited and progressed through their education with UKCBC. Our chairperson, Smitha George, his beloved spouse is very firm in her conviction to further his mission by instituting the foundation, the scholarship program and taking up various other support initiatives to further his vision. The holistic development of the students will be the prime focus of UKCBC. Initiatives like merit scholarships to less advantaged students, and support for innovative education projects are keyed as initiatives to be taken up by the Foundation.
The Geomon Joseph Foundation is aiming to issue over 500 academic scholarships to students in the year academic year 2022 and create another highly skilled cohort of students ready to rise to the challenges of the competitive global markets.
