INSIDE THE COLLEGE

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT WMOC

 

Yinka, says, "This was my first academic vocationally organised course I have attended since leaving school. In Nigeria I straight went to do business in print media and as a young person-saw that there was a gap in Youth and Sport from a business perspective, in Nigeria. Therefore, choosing to study at West Midlands Open College for Entrepreneurship with a bias to Diaspora Management, on my commonwealth scholarship scheme, was a grand choice. I look forward to collaborate when I return to Nigeria". 

1st January 2017, Graduation at The West Midlands Open College, at Lifegate Satellite Centre, in Walsall.
