THE HCI ADVANTAGE
Language Elective Programme (Chinese)
Since its inception in 1990, the Hwa Chong Chinese Language Elective Programme (CLEP) has dedicated itself to nurturing the nation’s next generation of bilingual talents and cultural ambassadors, well-versed in the intricacies of the Chinese Language and Culture.
CLEP students have continually surpassed expectations, with over half of the annual student population being recipients of the prestigious LEP Scholarship, awarded by the Ministry of Education.
From 1991, more than 130 CLEP students-cum-scholarship awardees have been given opportunities to further their studies in not only China and Taiwan but also the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Japan, Australia and even France and Germany, among other European countries.
To date, 2 CLEP graduates have been conferred the President’s Scholarship (1994, 2002), while others have garnered the outstanding Prime Minister’s Book Prize, an annual award conferred on the top bilingual students of each cohort at the primary, secondary and pre-university levels.
Upon graduation, these bilingual talents have moved on to further their careers in various fields such as the Education, Humanities, Law, Foreign Affairs, Media, Finance, Defence, Public Service and Politics where they continue to excel and contribute to society.BACK TO TOP
