The University of London students are a diverse and dedicated group of students who not only excel in their studies but also organize inspiring and thought-provoking talks on current topics such as climate change and multiculturalism. The idea is to expose students to a range of issues and debates.
Students who enroll for the University of London (UOL) programmes can expect to be part of a world-renowned institution which has become iconic. Offering courses globally for over a hundred years, today over 50,000 students are part of its global fraternity in as many as 170 countries. HELP Academy is one pioneering centre and has been offering these programmes since 1986.
HELP Academy, under the HELP University Group, offers courses in the social sciences, namely economics, management, accounting, finance and banking. It is worth noting that the academic direction is provided by one of the top academic institutions in the world, The London School of Economics (LSE). Since three years ago, the Academy has added the UOL Foundation course to its portfolio.
The degree courses can all be completed in Kuala Lumpur over a period of three years. Students also have the choice of transferring to other universities in the UK in their second year. The duration of the Foundation programme is 43 weeks and students read for 4 subjects.
The degree courses and the Foundation have many unique features; one, the academic content is developed by academics at the University of London (UK). Secondly, the examinations are set and graded by the same institution. In this sense, there is quality assurance. Lastly, the courses are entirely examinations based and these are conducted once a year, usually in May. The Foundation course subscribes to the same approach.
It needs emphasizing that the programmes have a supportive ecosystem; for example, study materials of the highest quality are provided. So is access to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), a learning portal. Students also can avail themselves to past examination papers plus examiners reports and direct access to the University of London’s online library. As part of their preparations to take their finals, HELP Academy conducts mock examinations.
Why should you choose the University of London degrees at HELP? HELP has more than 30 years’ experience conducting the UOL degrees with a proud track record of over 1,500 graduates. HELP is also the first and foremost provider of the UOL degrees in Malaysia and recognized by the UOL as a key player in the region.

There is a supportive environment and open access to lecturers for guidance. Furthermore, as students will be able to complete their studies locally at HELP, the courses are a fraction of what they would cost in the UK.
