Sunway College student Ee Fee Ley, 23, received the Ernst & Young Award for Most Outstanding ACCA Student during the sixth ACCA CAT graduation ceremony held recently.
Valued at RM1,000, the award is aimed at motivating students to strive towards excellence as well as to promote education, particularly in the accounting field.
“My secret to doing well is just to concentrate in class,” said Fee Ley who completed the ACCA in two-and-a-half years. She expressed her gratitude to friends and lecturers for their support and guidance in the course of her study.
Fee Ley’s father, Ee Min Yen, said the family was very proud of her achievement.
“As she is the youngest of seven siblings, we are also pleased to have fulfilled our responsibility of educating all our children,” he said.
Fee Ley is presently working on a research and analysis project, a requirement for Sunway-ACCA students who want to obtain an added qualification – the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University.
The MoA was signed by Sir Anthony Cleaver (chairman of UkeU Worldwide Limited) and Sunway principal Elizabeth Lee.
“E-learning allows students to study anytime they want, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students will also be able to obtain a UK qualification without leaving home,” said Sir Anthony.
To mark the start of the collaboration, the first programme to be offered to students here will be the Masters in Public Policy and Management from the University of York in Britain.
The programme is intended for people involved in policy development, and delivering services in government department and agencies and non-governmental and voluntary organisations.
Students will be in contact with lecturers and discussion groups in the British university via video-conferencing.
