What are the benefits of your OSSD program?
Generally, the benefits are numerous; ranging from saving cost on high fees of foreign universities, a curriculum with practical life and 21st-century skills, adequate career counselling, excellent university preparation and progression and a dedicated team with a wealth of experience. Specifically, the OSSD program year at our college is counted as a school year in Canada. The student gets an Ontario Student Record, his/her results are sent directly to the Canadian Ministry of Education and a student file is opened for him/her. All these with a saving of more than 60% of the cost of undertaking a college education in Canada as well as the ancillary costs. These savings can be ploughed back to extend the students sojourn at the university to the Masters level.
What are the benefits of your Foundation program?
Our Foundation program is affiliated with and validated by a renowned Cambridge college. The program undergoes annual standardization inspections to ensure that it does not operate differently from the program at the Cambridge UK campus which is one of the reasons for its wide acceptance. Our programs are coordinated totally with the UK campus programs and students write joint exams with the students in the UK. The Cambridge College teachers mark our student’s scripts and the certificates carry the logos of both colleges. They are also jointly signed by the principals of The Regent College, Abuja and that of our UK partner college.
What are the benefits of your A-levels programme?
Our Cambridge A level Program is a standardized A-level course with carefully selected, experienced, and dedicated A-Level teachers. Our college is an award-winning one.
