Dear Henry,
I am writing to you as Chairperson of The Association of Honorary Consuls In Hong Kong and Macau to let you know that Yew Chung Education Foundation will offer up to two International Student Grants, to each Consulate for students to study at Yew Chung Community College for the One-year University Foundation Diploma Programme and/or the Two-year Associate Degree Programme commencing on I* September 2009. It is doing this to further develop the International and intercultural nature of " College's student body. The Foundation would be most grateful to you if you were able to make this known to members of your Association.
The grant offered is for up to 100% of the College Tuition Fee and can be retained by students while in the College during each year of study, subject to obtaining a satisfactory cumulative Grade Point Average over the previous years courses.

Student accommodation cannot be provided, I am afraid, and therefore places can only be offered to students with parents or guardians able to house and took after them In Hong Kong. Non-residents of Hong Kong have to obtain a Student Visa.

Yew Chung Community College (YCCQ was established by Yew Chung Education Foundation as an international Liberal ArtsMumanities post-secondary/higher education College taking in school leavers with appropriate qualifications and offering them courses leading to an Associate Degree as a good means of transferring to further study at University. The Programmes offered by YCCC focus on the sort of learning required by today's Universities. We offer courses on:

> Optional Courses in Maths, Sciences, and in the Social Sciences, e.g.

YCCC has been accredited and has had its Programmes validated by the Hong Kong Council for the Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications. It has also been registered by the Hong Kong Governments Education Bureau and its

Programmes feature on the Hong Kong Government's Qualifications Framework.
Admission to the One-year University Foundation Diploma is from Form 5 in Hong
Kong schools or Year 11 in international schools with 5 passes in HKCEEACCSEIGCSE, one of which must be English, or the equivalent from another system. Admission to the Associate Degree Programme is from successful completion of the UFD Programme, or directly from the end of secondary education (Form 7 in Hong Kong and Years 12 or 13 in international and overseas education systems) with 5 passes at HKaEtIGCSE/GCSE, one of which must be English + I A Level or 2 AS levels or the equivalent from another system. Applicants should have reasonable competence in English at IELTS Level 5.5 or better, since they will be immersed in English within the College where the medium of teaching and learning is English.

YCCC has articulation agreements with 35 Universities around the world in USA, UK, Australia, Europe and Canada, and has had Programmes accepted as suitable prior learning for entry into a number of Hong Kong and Asian Universities. YCCC's AD graduates, who meet the necessary requirements set by individual universities, have a wide choice of further study opportunities and can enter into around 100 or more different degree course*. The articulation agreements enable AD graduates with an appropriate CPA and IELTS level to enter into the second year of three-year bachelor degree courses, or to transfer credits and complete a bachelor's degree in two years. A few universities offer to take students into the final year of a degree course (top-up degree courses).

The College has small classes (around 10 to 20) and a highly interactive and tutorial style of teaching and teaming which is much appreciated by the students. As one student puts it- 'For me YCCC is a very special College. The teachers come from different places and they all have rich teaching experience. In YCCC I can use my own ways for teeming. Moreover our College has small class learning and we can study In a good environment and teachers can focus on each student to work out our strengths and weaknesses. I love my College very much."

Applications for enrolment can be made at any time from now onwards until late August, but since non-residents of Hong Kong have to obtain a place in the College before obtaining a student visa, the latter of which takes time, prospective student are encouraged to apply early.
Please do not hesitate to ask for any further information that might be required.
