A decade of im­pact­ing lives

The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

AT a func­tion held at its Cheras cam­pus, YPC In­ter­na­tional Col­lege cel­e­brated 10 years of a fruit­ful and suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Liver­pool John Moores Uni­ver­sity (LJMU).

Un­der the part­ner­ship, YPC stu­dents are also of­fered di­rect path­ways to com­plete their de­gree pro­grammes at the LJMU cam­pus in Liver­pool, United King­dom.

PART­NERS FOR CHANGE To date, over 3,000 stu­dents have grad­u­ated from LJMU de­gree pro­grammes and se­cured good jobs in the mar­ket.

The al­liance be­tween YPC and LJMU kicked off with the in­tro­duc­tion of the BSc in eBusi­ness Tech­nol­ogy and Man­age­ment pro­gramme in 2006. To­day, de­gree pro­grammes of­fered by LJMU have de­vel­oped and gone on to in­clude ar­eas of busi­ness, ac­count­ing, mul­ti­me­dia and man­age­ment.

At the event, LJMU chan­cel­lor Sir Brian Leve­son de­scribed the part­ner­ship as more than a busi­ness or aca­demic ar­range­ment. “It is a part­ner­ship rooted in shared val­ues. Both the col­lege and the uni­ver­sity are com­mit­ted to ex­tend­ing ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties to as broad a sec­tion as pos­si­ble, pro­vid­ing sup­port and in­struc­tion to en­able stu­dents to achieve their full po­ten­tial,” ex­plained Levesen.

RE­WARDS AND AWARDS Af­ter his speech, Levesen pre­sented the LJMU Doc­tor in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (DBA) Schol­ar­ship awards to two aca­demic staff of the col­lege. The award is an­nu­ally pre­sented and is worth £33,750 (RM180,000). It comes as aid to staff of­fer­ing a doc­tor­ate pro­gramme at the Liver­pool cam­pus for three years.

YPC In­ter­na­tional Col­lege prin­ci­pal Datuk Dr Noel Robert con­grat­u­lated LJMU on its re­cent Qual­ity As­sur­ance Agency (QAA) for Higher Ed­u­ca­tion re­view. LJMU had ex­ceeded the set stan­dards and is the first uni­ver­sity to re­ceive two com­mended judg­ments for the qual­ity and en­hance­ment of stu­dent learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Said Robert, “Through the part­ner­ship with LJMU, YPC In­ter­na­tional Col­lege has left vis­i­ble foot­prints in the ed­u­ca­tion arena, and our con­tri­bu­tion to ed­u­ca­tion has brought sig­nif­i­cant progress to Malaysia’s hu­man cap­i­tal de­vel­op­ment.”
