Limkokwing University and Limkokwing English International (LEI) bid a fond farewell to the first group of hearing-impaired graduates from China on 2 January 2018.

Their graduation is a successful culmination of an intensive 6-month course that began in July 2017 for fifteen students from the Zhengzhou Institute of Technology of the People’s Republic of China as part of a strategic partnership between Malaysia and China.
