Three Firsts for London 2012

The long wait is over, and in about an hour’s time, students outside Europe will be pushing the University’s IT systems to the limit (but hopefully not beyond it) to check their exam results.

 This year we had three First class awards at what we still, in language from another century, call the ‘Overseas Board’.  Two of the Firsts (Golds?) this year are from Hong Kong and one is from Pakistan. 

Lee, King Hay Ryan

Lee, King Hay Ryan gained the highest First this year; he studied part-time on Graduate Entry Route B.  He received tuition support from Hong Kong University School of Professional and Continuing Education (HKU SPACE) and in his final year he also attended classes at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Professional Education and Executive Development (HKPolyU SPEED).  Ryan worked as a paralegal at a local law firm in Hong Kong during his studies and says that the “most valuable asset I acquired during my LLB course was… the legal mind set and methodology… for problem-solving.  You could always look up relevant materials for the law, but more importantly it is the methodology that guides you through the process to reach your answer.   The study of law,  says Ryan, calls for “determination, discipline, diligence and perseverance” (and despite the three Ds I’d put perseverance first).  Many congratulations Ryan.

Hassan Niazi

Lam, Chin Kiu Crystal is also from Hong Kong and also studied part-time Graduate Entry Route B. She attended classes at HKPolyU SPEED.  Congratulations Crystal.

Md Hassan Adbullah Niazi studied at University College Lahore in Pakistan.  He is our sole Undergraduate First this year (and the youngest).  He was on Scheme A.  In common with Ryan and Crystal two of Hassan’s first class marks were in Tort and Trusts.  Congratulations Hassan.
