In January, Dr Penny Hood, Director for International Partnerships at Anglia Ruskin University, and ABE’s Founder Chairperson, Lyndon Jones, accompanied Dr Hauwong Ho and Dr David Au on visits to three cities in southern China.

First they visited Guangdong Peizheng University, which has been running ABE programmes for a number of years and several students have progressed to MBA courses in the UK. Next they met with staff at Nanning College, which is due to commence ABE classes shortly, and where they addressed students and academics. Finally, they visited the city of Pingguo where Dr Ho and Dr Au are building a new university at which ABE’s Business Management and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management programmes will be offered.

Another visit is scheduled for later this year to further develop ABE’s presence in China.

Singapore and

Malaysia In January, Steven Harris, Director of Education at ABE, visited Malaysia and Singapore.

In Malaysia Steven visited colleges in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Baru. He also went to the Ministry of Education, where he introduced ABE’s new qualifications structure and its benefits to students, as well as the exciting news about expanded exemptions provisions.

After Malaysia he moved on to Singapore, where he met with principals, British Council representatives, students and the Council for Private Education (CPE). As the Malaysia and Singapore colleges are amongst ABE’s longest standing partners it was only fitting to introduce our new developments there. Details of ABE’s new qualifications are on the ABE website ( and details of our exemption scheme will be available by the end of June.

Another visit to Malaysia and Singapore is scheduled for later this year to further develop ABE in the region.
