BA (Hons) English for International Corporate Communication, University of Central Lancashire
I remember exactly 2 years ago, when my 4 years of undergraduate studies in English Education was abruptly terminated by a local university on the basis of failing the block practice (whose criteria for passing is very subjective, depending on individual perspectives of different supervisors), I was completely broken and demoralized, until I come across this bridging programme in SCOPE called the Bachelor of Arts: English for International Corporate Communication.
This programme has given me hope, courage and a second chance to conclude my undergraduate marathon with flying colors. It has provided ample opportunities to test my mettle and faith against overwhelming odds with the unwavering support, guidance and encouragement from respective instructors/lecturers, who are caring and thoughtful in their teaching strategies and materials, the content of which are highly relevant, compact and well-designed, providing me substantial subject knowledge which is crucial for postgraduate studies. The programme has also reignited my passion toward the English language and enhanced my language proficiency in the process. It has driven me to study tenaciously for my personal interest and has prepared me for my future aspiration as a potential language instructor. I feel truly thankful and blessed for enrolling in this programme and I would want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to SCOPE and its EICC team of professional academic and administrative staff.
Personally, I am interested in business communication studies. The EICC programme offers different path of studies which can satisfy various needs and interests. For me, I was specialized in PR stream and this is undoubtedly a good choice to improve both written English and practical knowledge of corporate communication. Through the many different coursework, I learnt a lot about the practical skills of PR writings and presentations. Also, the final dissertation is definitely interesting and challenging. It helps me to gain the knowledge of research, coordination, organization and summarization which are very useful in future studies.
