Oxbridge welcomes new students and parents.

As the college resumes today, a Parents Forum was held specifically for resident students and their parents. It was a huge turn-out as the event commences 2pm. The MD of the college Dr. Ogunsanya was in attendance and she welcomed the parents. The Vice-Principal, Mrs. Tony-Ubah took charge once the MD’s address was over, as she took the parents round a literal trip round the rules and regulations, expectations guiding the residence and other college activities. Parents too had opportunities to ask questions and be introduced to the personnel running the Residences.¬† This event marks that start of another successful year at Oxbridge. Look forward to the journey ahead ūüôā  ...

Another landmark was set in the history of Oxbridge, as its sister institution, The Oxbridge Academy located at No 8, Harold Shodipo, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos officially opens on the 9th of September, 2014. A short ceremony commenced at 9am, with a lot of dignitaries and members of both Oxbridge Academy and Oxbridge Tutorial college in attendance. As has been the norm for the college, the opening was mainly heralded with prayers which were officiated by Canon Agara. From the entrance of the institution to the academy reception, prayers were offered, for God’s favour on the new institution. The Academic Manager of the institution, Ms. Oyinlola Odusola, later took the guests round the state of the art facilities the institution has to offer. Ms. Odusola at the end of the short ceremony, thanked all those that attended and also solicited their continuous support in making the college a success. (Note that lectures will start on the 15th). The diploma offered by the institution is mainly in business related courses and it is equivalent of the first year of UK university, which means that the qualification could be used independently or used to continue (into year 2) university education in the UK. Isn’t it SMART? Check out a recent promotional video. Feel free to spread the word...

Oxbridge Alumnus featured in Saturday’s Punch

Muyiwa Omosa is one of our alumnus doing well for himself, having taken the plunge into the murky waters of entrepreneurship in Nigeria and he is a success story. He is featured here in the Saturday Punch of 6th on a visit to the college on the 22nd Businesses pass through difficult phases. Twenty-seven-year-old Muyiwa Omosa is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the e-Naissance Group Limited, a mobile phone application firm. He tells Peter Okeugo the story of the young company: How did you set up your business? It was tough at the beginning. For every successful entrepreneur, there is always a difficult phase; I had to grow up quickly. Bringing my idea to life made it seem like a hard job. For a 23-year-old then, I had thought all I needed to do was to develop the product and everything would just fall into place. It didn’t occur to me that systems and strategies had to be put in place for it to actually become successful. I have been through a lot over the years. I had to go back to the foundation to unlearn some things in order to understand the things I know now. I went through a lot of experiences to shape my character and values. It was a tough phase for me but it made me who I am today; it is still ongoing. What was the greatest challenge you encountered as a starter? The biggest challenge for me was having a vision with no plans on how to get there. I had the vision but that was not enough. I needed to set goals and work on them. I attended Daystar Leadership Academy where I was...
