Mr Dhesi recently visited the campus of Oxford Business College (OBC) at The Grove in the city centre. While discussing with the Oxford Business College top management about the local communities and education facilities, he said that such a facility was much required in his constituency.
Mr Sarwar Khawaja, Dr Padmesh Gupta and other senior staff of the college welcomed Mr Dhesi at the college. Mr Khawaja assured the Member of Parliament the provide the best of the services to the people of Slough who want to resume their higher education and seek a better future. While underlining the commitment of the college towards the communities Mr Khawaja elaborated upon the ways OBC helps people shape their future.
The college has the arrangements for students to avail opportunity of having student finance to cover their living from SFE. This makes the life of many such students easy, many of whom have been keen to have a University degree and to move ahead in life but couldn’t realise their dream due to the high costs of family or personal living expenses.
The managing director of the college, Dr Padmesh Gupta said: "OBC provides flexible learning options also to help people complete their higher education while working or running a business. To provide a wide choice of courses at its campuses in Slough, London, Oxford, Coventry and Nottingham, the college has partnered with a few leading universities of the UK. It's most prominent partnerships are with University of West London (UWL), Buckinghamshire New University and University for the Creative Arts."
