Abbey DLD tasks parents on UK varsities
Charles Johnson, Africa, Director of Sales, Abbey DLD Group of Colleges, has called on Nigerian parents who crave to give their children an unrivalled opportunity to gain entry into universities in the United Kingdom, including Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College London to first send them to Abbey DLD Group of Colleges, where they will be equipped with the requirements of various schools in the UK.
At a media briefing in Lagos, Johnson and Muazu Jalaluddeen, Students Admissions Manager for college, highlighted the importance of the two-year pre-varsity programmes offered by the college, saying they enable students to gain admission in some UK’s top universities. The officers called on parents to use the opportunity provided by the school send their children to top schools in the UK.
Most Nigerian students have Ordinary Level (O’Level) results, which is not the same as the required A Levels needed to gain admission into UK universities, but in the college the student are equipped to write the A’Level and other examines.
“Our courses include comprehensive GCSE, A Level programmes and a number of International Foundation programmes,” Charles Johnson said, adding that going to Abbey DLD will allow Nigerian students to achieve the grades they need to outdo other international students competing for admission too.
Jalaluddeen disclosed that entry into the college could be from 14 years of age to study GCSEs or from16 years of age for A Levels.
