Rosedale International Education has signed a partnership with Singapore-based Birmingham Academy to offer the Rosedale Global High School Program to students.

The program is set to begin by May 2024, with the first cohort eligible for graduation in June 2025. Graduates will be granted the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, allowing them the flexibility to apply to higher education institutions around the world.

“Together, we will expand access to world-renowned Canadian education that empowers students through asset-based learning to design their future and reach their full potential,” a spokesperson for Rosedale International Education said.

“Our partnership with Birmingham Academy in Singapore is a collaborative effort in the region, and we’re proud to work together with our first partner in Singapore to bring modern education to new heights while reshaping the future of global education,” said Michelle Cui, founder and CEO of Rosedale International Education.

Through the partnership, students will have access to the annual Global Student Success Forum, connecting them to more than 35 Global Top 100 Universities at the Rosedale OSSD Elite University Student Recruitment Fair.

The event provides opportunities to meet one-to-one with university admissions and recruitment staff, attend student workshops and Q&A sessions and prepare themselves for the the transition from high school to higher education.

Abdul Rashid, CEO of Birmingham Academy said that the partnership marks the start of the institution’s diversification into the international school curriculum market in Singapore.

“At present, we are the only private school in Singapore to offer the Rosedale OSSD from Grades 10 to 12,” he said.

For the last decade, Birmingham Academy has offered a variety of qualifications including preparatory courses for entry into Singapore Public Schools, Post-Secondary Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas and OTHM UK master’s level courses.

Ng Joon Peng, founder and chairman of Birmingham Academy said through the new partnership, the institution’s mission is to ensure that OSSD graduates can “fulfil their dream to obtain an undergraduate degree which can lead to good jobs and good remuneration”.

Singapore is the fifth Rosedale Global High School Partner School country in Southeast Asia and Rosedale International Education is currently expanding its collaboration in the region, among existing partnerships within Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.

In March 2024, Rosedale International Education also announced a new S$10,000 scholarship opportunity in Singapore for Rosedale Global High School graduates that have been admitted to the National University of Singapore.

“Through this annual Scholarship in partnership with the National University of Singapore, we look forward to Rosedale OSSD students continuing to apply to NUS and reaping the rewards of an education from one of the most sought-after universities in the world,” said Fernando Oliveira, principal of Rosedale Global High Schools.

“Our vision at Rosedale is to create life-changing learning outcomes through a transformative approach to learning. With collaborative programs across 17 countries, Rosedale provides transformative education to our students, and these learners seek out global post-secondary learning opportunities with the world’s leading universities,” said Oliveira.
