HELP has delivered the University of London’s International Programmes (ULIP) for over 30 years with distinction and recorded many notable achievements.
It has consistently produced First Class Honours graduates every year.
In the 2106 exams, an unprecedented 17 First Class Honours results were attained by students from the two ULIP centres of the HELP Group – 11 from HELP Academy (HA) and six from HELP College of Arts and Technology (HELP CAT).
This places the HELP Group among the best ULIP teaching centres in the world and reaffirms its strength as a centre of educational excellence in the Asia Pacific.
The five First Class Honours students from HELP CAT are Ong Ken Lip, Nai Sin Hong, Toh Yik Hon, Roselyn Chai, Ong Tiek Huey. The sixth student, Low Chang Song, obtained his First Class Honours in Economics at the LSE where he had been admitted after his first year at HELP CAT.
The 11 First Class achievers at HA are Seng Rou Lin, Ng Teik Man, Ham Ji Eun, Johann Oh Hock Seng, Gew Ee Von, Hannah Tan Hui Ern, Ling Hui Yee, Oh Chai Woon, Chua Wei Zhen, Shabeen Ibrahim and Tessa Phang Shyn Li.
These excellent results prompted an elated response from Dr Mary Stiasny, the Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) of the University of London, who wrote to HELP saying: “Seventeen First Class Awards is a stupendous outcome…all of us at the University of London International Programmes share your pride.”
“My congratulations to your students and teaching colleagues who have helped make this magnificent achievement possible,” she added.
In the 2016 exams, three HELP students also scored the highest marks in the world in specific subjects in the ULIP exams, beating students from ULIP centres around the world.
These scores elicited another round of compliments to HELP from Dr John Ferrá, Deputy Director of the University of London International Programmes at LSE saying that these are truly amazing achievements.
“This is a resounding endorsement of the high quality teaching undertaken at HELP Academy and HELP CAT.
“Please convey this news to the relevant teaching staff whom I’m sure will be delighted to know,” he added.
Most of this year’s 17 First Class results are in the Accounting and Finance pathway. This places their Bachelor of Science (Accounting & Finance) degree among the best Accounting & Finance qualifications in the world, as the London School of Economics is placed fourth in the world for Accounting and Finance by QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016, ahead of the universities of Oxford, Chicago and Cambridge.
The latest round of excellent results places the HELP Group among the best ULIP teaching centres in the world and reaffirms its strength as a centre of educational excellence in Asia Pacific.
Over a period of 30 years HELP’s graduates from ULIP have distinguished themselves in many fields.
They have won scholarships for postgraduate study at top universities.
They are also serving as distinguished academics in universities in the UK, Singapore and Australia, and hold top jobs in multinational companies and international agencies.
The University of London is renowned for its contributions to scholarship, research and knowledge. Illustrious staff and alumni of the university include four monarchs, 52 presidents or prime ministers and 74 Nobel Prize winners.
In 1858, the university started its International Programmes to enable people who could not study on-campus in London to obtain a university degree.
Today, more than 54,000 students are studying University of London degrees in over 180 countries. The university’s degrees and its reputation for academic rigour remain highly respected by employers throughout the world.
Academic direction for the university’s International Programmes is provided by the London School of Economics (LSE), an international centre of academic excellence and innovation whose teaching and research is recognised worldwide as a benchmark of quality.
Both of the HELP Group’s departments responsible for delivering the International Programmes, at HELP Academy and HELP College of Arts and Technology, have achieved another mark of excellence by being designated as Affiliate Centres by the university for providing students with an excellent level of teaching and ancillary support.
Affiliate status is the highest level of recognition awarded by the university to teaching institutions around the world.
