The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

WITH Univer­sity of East Lon­don’s (UEL) unique (3+0) pro­grammes at HELP Academy, stu­dents are of­fered the op­por­tu­nity to earn an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised de­gree.

More than 2,662 suc­cess­ful grad­u­ates were ex­posed to an in­dus­try-ori­ented cur­ricu­lum, mak­ing them highly em­ploy­able and glob­ally mo­bile.

The (3+0) UEL de­gree pro­grammes of­fered at HELP in­clude Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance, Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) Mar­ket­ing, Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness and Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) Events Man­age­ment.

Th­ese five de­grees are highly mar­ketable with great em­ploy­ment prospects.

The Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Mar­ket­ing and In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness de­grees span the op­er­a­tions and the­o­ries of busi­ness. It cov­ers the abil­ity to pro­duce prod­ucts or ser­vices, con­sumer be­hav­iours, man­age­ment of re­sources and oth­ers.

The Events Man­age­ment de­gree is in de­mand by busi­nesses. It ad­dresses spe­cific busi­ness is­sues re­lat­ing to events mar­ket­ing and project man­age­ment.

Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance hon­ours de­gree pre­pares grad­u­ates to meet the de­mands of the ac­count­ing and fi­nance sec­tors of the econ­omy.

With ex­emp­tions from the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered and Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants (ACCA) fun­da­men­tal level pa­pers, it al­lows the ac­count­ing and fi­nance grad­u­ate to ob­tain a pro­fes­sional ac­coun­tancy qual­i­fi­ca­tion within a short time.

Depart­ment Head Dr James Nayagam said that UEL grad­u­ates are in de­mand and as a pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tion, with the hon­ours de­gree recog­nised by ACCA UK, Cer­ti­fied Prac­tis­ing Ac­count­ing (CPA) Aus­tralia as well as the Malaysia In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants (MIA).

As part of the 3+0 ar­range­ment, UEL’s ex­ter­nal ex­am­in­ers visit HELP three times a year, to en­sure stan­dards are sim­i­lar and also ex­am­i­na­tion ques­tions are mod­er­ated for high stan­dards and for bench­mark­ing re­quire­ments.

Dr Nayagam said stu­dents reg­is­tered for the UEL May 2013 in­take are en­cour­aged to com­plete a four-month in­tern­ship, equiv­a­lent to eight credit hours, to en­sure they are ex­posed to the in­dus­try.

Last year, UEL UK, won Out­stand­ing In­ter­na­tional Strat­egy at Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Awards 2012 for its Global Reach Strat­egy, in its trans­for­ma­tion pro­gramme to of­fer its stu­dents a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence.

This in­cludes the op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to travel to other UEL cam­puses for their stud­ies, whether in Malaysia, Viet­nam or Cyprus.

Dr Nayagam said univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion opens doors to a global learn­ing com­mu­nity where stu­dents ac­quire skills that en­able them to work in both a lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional en­vi­ron­ment.
