The 11 January 2014 was a day to remember for PolyU SPEED’s graduating class of 2013 as they celebrated their academic success in the third PolyU SPEED and University of London International Programme Presentation Ceremony. The weather was perfect for the outdoor ceremony which was held at the Chan Sui Kau and Chan Lam Moon Chun Square of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The ceremony commenced at 2.30pm with a speech from Professor Peter Yuen, Dean of the College of Professional and Continuing Education, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In his speech Professor Yuen highlighted the success of the decade-long collaboration between PolyU SPEED and the University of London International Programmes. This partnership had led to PolyU SPEED nurturing close to 5,000 University of London LLB students in Hong Kong over this period.

This year there were 93 graduates from the University of London Bachelor of Laws (LLB) Programme. Dr Mary Stiasny, Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) and Chief Executive of the University of London International Programme, presented scrolls to the graduates. Other University of London academics who attended the event were Professor Jenny Hamilton, Director of the Undergraduate Laws Programme, and Mr Simon Askey, Deputy Director of the Undergraduate Laws Programme. Their presence was a testament of the close ties between PolyU SPEED and the University of London.

The graduating class this year has outdone themselves. Two students obtained First Class Honours and 15 graduated with Second Class Honours Upper Division. Both the First Class graduates, Ms Ho Wai Kwan Celia and Mr Chen Kam Lung Alan, were also recipients of the University of London Award for Academic Achievement, with the best results in the world for Graduate Entry Route B Year 3.

The ceremony was followed by a tea reception for graduates and their guests.
