Graduating from NYP in 2012, Chester Chow Wai Mun, Tan Jing Long and Larry Liauw went on to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Accountancy at Nanyang Technological University (Chester and Jing Long) and Singapore Institute of Technology (Larry). Chester and Jing Long graduated this year from NTU with First Class Honours; and Larry graduated from SIT with Honours with Highest Distinction.
They shared that their three years in NYP had played a vital role in laying the foundation required for their university education. In Chester’s words, “I have never regretted choosing NYP, the knowledge gained from my polytechnic studies gave me an edge over my peers in NTU. I will always appreciate the valuable lessons taught by my passionate and knowledgeable lecturers."
