TOP Pathway Graduate

"to begin with it is hard; but once you get through it, you will understand it, and love it!" 

Le Ma is one of the outstanding graduates from Top Education Institute’s pathway program to Macquarie University. Le Ma did extremely well in all subjects achieving High Distinctions with TOP and winning the Award for Outstanding Performance in the Diploma of Business in 2008. Le Ma won a full scholarship from TOP for her degree at Macquarie. The Chinese Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency, Junsai Zhang and Vice-Chancellor of Macquarie University, Professor Steven Schwartz attended the Scholarship Ceremony with Le Ma being regarded as an excellent example of the achievements of Chinese students in Australia. She directly entered into the 2nd year of Macquarie’s Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting), which she subsequently completed in 2010.

With a solid base from her one-year of study with TOP and her hard work at Macquarie, Le achieved 13 High Distinctions out of the 14 units at Macquarie, achieving overall GPA of 3.93. Among the awards she received were the PricewaterhouseCoopers Prize for Best Overall Performance in Accounting and Finance and Merit Certificate for Outstanding Academic Performances in both 2008 and 2009.

When asked what was the secret to her success, she offered three golden rules, with ‘time management’ at the forefront. She said students need to learn how to make plans for themselves; and make full use of their study time so that they can enjoy the rest of the time - learning is only one part of student life, connecting it with the reality is the most interesting thing. Le Ma considers adaptation as a necessary process that also applies to studies.
