Tears of Joy at YPC International College and Liverpool John Moores University Graduation 2019

It was an awesome, proud moment for the 286 students who have studied the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) programme at YPC International College Malaysia to receive their certificates and graduate with a Bachelor Degree (Hons) from LJMU, United Kingdom on Sunday, 14 April 2019.

The tears of joy in their parents’ eyes and the beaming smiles on their faces said it all! 

The LJMU Malaysian graduation ceremony 2019 took place at the Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, where more than 500 graduates and guests gathered to celebrate this joyful moment with friends and families.

The graduates have successfully completed their studies in the field of BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance, BSc (Hons) E-Business Technology & Management, BA (Hons) Business Management and BSc (Hons) Multimedia Computing.

The scrolls and certificates were handed to the graduates by LJMU Pro-Vice Chancellor himself.

One of the momentous moments of the graduation ceremony was when a disabled graduate received his “First Class Honours Degree” in Accounting and Finance. He was cheered on with thunderous applause and standing ovation from every single person attending the convocation – truly a tribute to his strength and determination. 

The principal of YPC International College, Datuk Dr. Noel commented: “Education is blind to a person’s disability.”

YPC degree students follow the same rigorous programmes that the students at LJMU United Kingdom study. It is a 100% mirror of the program with students receiving the same lecture notes, assignments, projects, test and final exams as their UK counterparts. And they receive the same awards and certificates.

Malaysian students at YPC also have a chance to graduate in the UK. They can pursue their final year in England at the LJMU main campus.

The scrolls and certificates were handed to Malaysian students by the LJMU Pro-Vice-Chancellor himself.

Talking to MWN, most of the LJMU Malaysia-based graduates expressed satisfaction and pride of being an LJMU Alumni.

Among the reasons why Malaysians choose LJMU programmes at YPC are: YPC/LJMU ensures they have all the information and support they need to plan for their studies, besides helping them find their place in the working world – its programmes focuses on students’ employability with industry-informed practical learning and opportunities for work placements.

YPC/LJMU engages itself with leading organisations to give students the vital experiences employers are looking for, making graduates highly sought after.
