尊敬的爱尔兰都柏林大学学院医学院副院长帕特里克费乐博士,
马来西亚槟城医药学院主席和院长阿米尔沙力夫丁莫哈末基尔教授,
槟城医药学院销售与市场执行员罗美娟小姐,
爱尔兰教育专员周俊杰先生,
MyStudy 升学辅导员黄宝贤小姐,
董总常委和行政部同仁,
新闻媒体朋友,
大家早上好!

首先,让我们以热烈的掌声,欢迎贵宾们莅临出席今天的新闻发布会。

今天是令人高兴的一天。都柏林大学学院医学院副院长帕特里克费乐博士,以及槟城医药学院主席和院长阿米尔沙力夫丁莫哈末基尔教授,到来宣布承认马来西亚华文独中统考文凭,作为在都柏林大学学院(University College Dublin, UCD)和槟城医药学院(Penang Medical College, PMC),修读医药学士课程的入学资格。我们的两位贵宾将对此作出具体宣布,包括对统考成绩的要求、课程期限、实习和医生执业准证等事宜。

我们今天取得这项成果,源自于去年董总与爱尔兰高等学府之间的互访和联系。当时,董总和6所华文独中等单位组成的教育考察团,赴爱尔兰进行教育考察。这项活动获得爱尔兰企业署和爱尔兰驻马来西亚大使馆的协助,促进了两国的教育交流与合作。爱尔兰政府提供许多优越条件,以吸引我国学生前往留学,包括允许学生在课外和假期打工。

去年5月,我们在爱尔兰教育专员周俊杰先生陪同下,访问了爱尔兰企业署和都柏林大学学院等12所高等学府。约两个月后,爱尔兰企业署和都柏林大学学院的代表到马来西亚回访董总,进一步商讨有关承认华文独中统考文凭和学生升学事宜。

我们的这些努力终于带来了成果。都柏林大学学院作为世界排名首200强的其中一所顶尖大学,今天宣布承认华文独中统考文凭,令人非常高兴,让我们以热烈的掌声,欢庆这项承认和肯定。在此,董总要特别感谢爱尔兰驻马来西亚大使馆、爱尔兰企业署、都柏林大学学院、槟城医药学院以及周俊杰先生所给予的支持和协助。

此外,目前有越来越多国内外高等学府承认华文独中统考文凭作为入学资格,董总呼吁我国政府和教育部,尽快承认华文独中统考文凭。

谢谢大家。

 

 


 

Speech by the Dong Zong Chairman, Dr. Yap Sin Tian at the Press Conference for the Recognition of Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) by University College Dublin

Date: 22 January 2014 (Wednesday)
Time: 1000-1115
Venue: Meeting Room A401, Dong Jiao Zong Higher Learning Centre,
Kajang, Selangor, Malaysia.


A very warm welcome to our distinguished guests today:
Dr. Patrick Felle, Associate Dean of the School of Medicine & Medical Science of University College Dublin;
Professor Amir Sharifuddin Mohd Khir, President and Dean of Penang Medical College;
Ms. Lo May Chin, Sales & Marketing Executive of Penang Medical College;
Mr. C.K. Chiau, Education Consultant of EducationIreland;
Ms. Boey Wong, Education Counsellor of MyStudy;
Fellow colleagues from the Dong Zong Standing Committee and Administrative Department; and
Friends from the news media
A very good morning to all of you!

First of all, I would like to invite all of you to give a big round of applause in welcoming our distinguished guests to this press conference today.

Today marks a happy occasion. The Associate Dean of the School of Medicine & Medical Science of University College Dublin, Dr. Patrick Felle, and President and Dean of Penang Medical College, Professor Amir Sharifuddin Mohd Khir, are here today to announce the recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) of Malaysian Independent Chinese Secondary Schools as an admission qualification for the Bachelor Degree in Medicine at University College Dublin (UCD) and Penang Medical College (PMC). In this relation, our two distinguished guests will be making specific announcements on matters such as the UEC result requirements, course length, medical training and medical practising certificates. 

We owe this achievement today to the mutual visits and contact initiated last year between Dong Zong and the institutions of higher learning in Ireland. At the time, an education delegation formed by Dong Zong and six Independent Chinese Secondary Schools and other organisations travelled to Ireland for an educational visit. This activity was carried out with the assistance of Enterprise Ireland and the Embassy of Ireland in Malaysia, and has promoted educational exchanges and collaboration between the two countries. The Irish government has provided many excellent conditions for attracting Malaysian students to study in Ireland, including allowing students to work outside their study schedules and during holidays. 

In May last year, in the company of the Education Consultant of EducationIreland, Mr. C.K. Chiau, we visited Enterprise Ireland and 12 institutions of higher learning in Ireland, including University College Dublin. About two months later, representatives of Enterprise Ireland and University College Dublin paid a visit to Dong Zong and held a further discussion on matters relating to the recognition of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) and the furthering of studies by students.

Our efforts eventually paid off. University College Dublin, a top university ranked among the world’s top 200, is announcing its recognition of the UEC today. This is such happy news. Please join me in giving a big round of applause in celebration of this great affirmation and recognition. Dong Zong would specifically like to thank the Embassy of Ireland in Malaysia, Enterprise Ireland, University College Dublin, Penang Medical College and Mr. C.K. Chiau for all the support and assistance provided.

Currently, there are many domestic and foreign institutions of higher learning have given recognition to the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) of Malaysian Independent Chinese Secondary Schools as an admission qualification, thus Dong Zong urges the Government of Malaysia and Ministry of Education to quickly recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC).

Thank you.
