Assunta founder receives honorary Irish degree

Sunday Mail, January 16, 2006


SISTER Enda Ryan was recently awarded an Honorary Master of Arts (MA) degree at the National University of Ireland, Galway, for her contribution to education in Malaysia.

Her most significant achievement was the founding of the Assunta Secondary School in Petaling Jaya.

She has received numerous awards and honours for her achievements, including the Pingat Jasa Kebaktian (PJK) from the Sultan of Selangor.

Although she has retired from teaching, Ryan still graces the school’s occasions such as Teachers’ Day, Prize Giving Day, Assunta Spirit Week and Sports Day.

The National University of Ireland takes pride in Sister Enda’s achievement and service to society.

Education is highly valued and the quality of university education and research make Ireland an attractive destination for students.

Ireland has witnessed a dramatic growth in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, financial and computer industries.

For more than 200 years, Ireland’s leading universities have set the highest standards of education.

Healthcare courses in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, clinical speech therapy and pharmacy are increasingly becoming as popular as traditional disciplines.

The Irish Universities & Medical Schools Consortium (IUMC) has established a tradition of excellence in offering a good variety of courses at four of Ireland’s oldest and most prestigious universities: the National University of Ireland, Galway; Trinity College Dublin; University College Cork; and University College Dublin.

Due to Ireland’s booming economy, other courses such as Engineering and Information Technology have also made headway in recent years.

The Bachelor of Engineering degrees offered by the Irish University Consortium members are fully accredited by the Institute of Engineers of Ireland. For more information, call Aedumus consultancy at (03) 2163-2302.
