A proud achieve­ment

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION & FURTHER STUDIES FAIR -

HELP UNIVER­SITY’S Fac­ulty of Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and Ac­count­ing has ev­ery rea­son to be proud this year, as 11 stu­dents won schol­ar­ships to study at the Univer­sity of Queens­land, and two at the Univer­sity of New South Wales.

HELP Univer­sity is also the only univer­sity in the world to have a 2+ 1 ar­tic­u­la­tion pro­gramme with the Univer­sity of Queens­land, which was ranked 46 by QS World Univer­sity Rank­ings.

Stu­dents are able to trans­fer into Univer­sity of Queens­land’s Bach­e­lor of Com­merce ( 2+ 1), Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Man­age­ment ( 2+ 1), Bach­e­lor of Eco­nom­ics ( 1.5+ 1.5) and Bach­e­lor of In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel and Tourism Man­age­ment ( 1.5+ 1.5)

Be­sides the Univer­sity of Queens­land, stu­dents are able to trans­fer to many univer­si­ties in Aus­tralia and New Zealand, as well as the United King­dom to con­tinue their stud­ies.

This year, two stu­dents – Foong Wing Yan, and Chua Chia Hui – won schol­ar­ships to study at the Univer­sity of New South Wales ( UNSW).

“I had al­ways wanted to go to Aus­tralia to study af­ter high school. How­ever, when I saw that HELP Univer­sity has very good ar­tic­u­la­tion ar­range­ments with most of the univer­si­ties in Aus­tralia, I de­cided to spend a year study­ing the Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness pro­gramme be­fore trans­fer­ring to Aus­tralia.

“The pro­gramme was very af­ford­able, and by do­ing so I helped my fam­ily save a sub­stan­tial amount,” says Foong, a HELP Dis­tinc­tion Schol­ar­ship Award stu­dent.

Foong, who had al­ways wanted to study at UNSW, met up of­ten with a UNSW in­ter­na­tional of­fi­cer who came fre­quently to Malaysia to re­cruit stu­dents. She would ask for ad­vice, and was told about the UNSW Busi­ness School High Achiev­ers Schol­ar­ship. She saw the poster ad­ver­tis­ing this in the stu­dent place­ment cen­tre in HELP and de­cided to ap­ply.

She won a schol­ar­ship worth A$ 10,000 ( RM31,000) to pur­sue the Bach­e­lor of Com­merce de­gree, dou­ble ma­jor in Fi­nan­cial Eco­nom­ics and Fi­nance.

“I’m very happy and very grate­ful to my fam­ily and lec­tur­ers who have helped me dur­ing my stud­ies at HELP,” says Foong.

The 11 stu­dents who won schol­ar­ships to study in the Univer­sity of Queens­land are Chan Sze Ern, Han Pei Jean, Heu Wen Sze, Gan Tze Jin, Tea Zi Kang, Cheong Min, Ong Tung, Yam Sum Yee, Ch’ng Ying Jie, Chang Yuen Hui and Low Pei Zhen.

Pei Zhen was awarded a 100% Tu­ition Fee Waiver schol­ar­ship to pur­sue her Bach­e­lor of Eco­nom­ics de­gree in Fe­bru­ary. Upon com­ple­tion of the Foun­da­tion in Arts pro­gramme, in which she was also a School Achiev­ers Schol­ar­ship Award ( SASA) Scholar at HELP Univer­sity, she con­tin­ued her Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Year 1 pro­gramme in the Depart­ment of Busi­ness Stud­ies.

Her two sis­ters – Low Lee Yin and Low Pei Yu – also won the Univer­sity of Queens­land Full Tu­ition Fee Waiver schol­ar­ships to com­plete the fi­nal year of their ac­count­ing de­grees in Aus­tralia.

When asked the se­cret to her suc­cess, Pei Zhen said, “Al­ways walk the ex­tra mile. I’ve al­ways en­joyed par­tic­i­pat­ing and com­plet­ing case stud­ies, and tak­ing part in the com­pe­ti­tions, which re­ally helped in my stud­ies.

“Most of the stu­dents who took part in the case stud­ies were my se­niors and I was able to learn from them.

“You also need to look for op­por­tu­ni­ties and grab them, take part in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties and man­age your time well.”

For stu­dents in­ter­ested in pur­su­ing a de­gree and ca­reer in ac­count­ing, fi­nance, busi­ness and hos­pi­tal­ity, HELP Univer­sity’s Fac­ulty of Busi­ness, Eco­nomic and Ac­count­ing of­fers de­grees highly recog­nised by in­dus­try part­ners and pro­fes­sional bod­ies, giv­ing them ad­van­tages when they grad­u­ate, as they are able to gain ex­emp­tions and recog­ni­tion when ap­ply­ing to pro­fes­sional bod­ies.

The pro­gramme is also recog­nised by most Aus­tralian univer­si­ties for credit trans­fer.

HELP Univer­sity’s Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness ( Ac­count­ing) ( Hon­ours) de­gree is recog­nised by four pro­fes­sional bod­ies – a tes­ti­mony to the ed­u­ca­tional qual­ity pro­vided by this fac­ulty. Not all univer­si­ties in this world, de­spite their sta­tus, have their ac­count­ing de­grees recog­nised for credit ex­emp­tions by ACCA, CPA Aus­tralia, The In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales ( ICAEW) and the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants ( CIMA).

The Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness ( Fi­nance) ( Hon­ours) pro­gramme is also ac­cepted into the Char­tered Fi­nan­cial An­a­lyst ( CFA) In­sti­tute Univer­sity Recog­ni­tion Pro­gramme. This sta­tus is granted to in­sti­tu­tions whose de­gree pro­grammes in­cor­po­rate at least 70% of the CFA Can­di­date Body of Knowl­edge (CBOK).

Stu­dents who have com­pleted the Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness ( Hon­ours) de­gree are also el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for Val­i­da­tion by Ed­u­ca­tional Ex­pe­ri­ence ( VEE) credit with the So­ci­ety of Ac­tu­ar­ies ( SOA) of the United States of Amer­ica if they re­ceive the ac­cept­able score in the VEE ap­proved cour­ses.

The Fi­nan­cial Plan­ning As­so­ci­a­tion of Malaysia also awards ex­emp­tion for their Mod­ule 3, for stu­dents who have com­pleted the Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness ( Fi­nance) ( Hon­ours) de­gree. They will then only be re­quired to com­plete three more mod­ules to be awarded the Cer­ti­fied Fi­nan­cial Plan­ner ( CFP) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

For STPM and UEC grad­u­ates in­ter­ested to pur­sue a busi­ness or ac­count­ing or fi­nance de­gree, HELP Univer­sity pro­vides a 30% waiver on tu­ition fees for STPM grad­u­ates and 25% waiver on tu­ition fees for UEC grad­u­ates. There is also a 50% waiver on tu­ition fees for those in­ter­ested to pur­sue a Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment or Tourism Man­age­ment de­gree.

HELP Univer­sity also pro­vides var­i­ous schol­ar­ships such as the School Achiever Schol­ar­ship Awards ( SASA) to out­stand­ing stu­dents who have dis­played ex­cel­lent lead­er­ship and aca­demic re­sults.

Other schol­ar­ships avail­able are Dis­tinc­tion, Merit, and the Prin­ci­pal’s List Award Schol­ar­ships. Fur­ther­more, HELP Univer­sity’s pro­grammes are fully ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA), and all HELP Univer­sity’s busi­ness diploma and de­gree pro­grammes are listed in the loan list of PTPTN.
