A pioneer in international education, Royal Institute International school of Higher Education rates high in providing a comprehensive and disciplined education system for students to achieve academic distinction.
Royal Institute in Havelock Town has over 25 years experience in teaching for GCE London O/L and A/L, preparing students for Edexcel examinations .Its branch schools in Nugegoda and Maharagama teach up to GCE A/L Cambridge and Edexcel examinations respectively and the latter also prepares students in the English medium for the local A/L based on the Government syllabus. Our students can proceed up to an internationally reputed degree of the University of London at the Royal Institute of Colombo without interruption. Thus, whether it is Cambridge, Edexcel or local examinations, Royal Institute is in a position to offer all options.
Royal Institute has been conducting a very successful full-time crash course of 4 months’ duration for the last several years to prepare students for Edexcel O/L (IGCSE) examinations and has produced exceptionally good results. This course is ideal for students sitting the local O/L examination to secure international qualifications and a strong foundation to pursue London or local A/L courses. This crash course offers both science and commerce streams. Royal Institute guarantees covering the entire syllabus and discussing past examination papers within the short period of 4 months. The next course to coach students for the May 2011 Edexcel O/L examination is scheduled to commence during the first week of January 2011.
The quality of a school faculty is the essential foundation of its reputation. The number, abilities and relevant qualifications of faculty members are the chief indicators of a school’s standing. Royal Institute has achieved this reputation by implementing a policy of recruiting its academic staff only from those who satisfy the above criteria. The dedicated, experienced and resourceful faculty members are specialists in their relevant fields and are responsible for the high quality delivery of the academic programmes.
Royal Institute strongly believes that a good library is an indispensable asset to students of an institute of higher education. Therefore it has invested heavily on the library to provide an extensive and comprehensive collection of text books in all fields of study, supplementary books and other reading material relevant to all courses conducted by Royal Institute. The library has the lending as well as the reference facility. For the benefit of students who wish to follow the science stream, we provide well equipped separate laboratories for Chemistry, Physics and Biology, appropriately staffed.
Year after year, our results in O/L and A/L examinations have been outstanding. Some of our students have achieved world’s best results in certain subjects often surpassing even UK students. Maintaining high standards in teaching, exercising strict control over the quality of instructions and limiting the class size to the generally accepted norms ensuring individual attention are among the contributory factors for such excellent results.
Edexcel will call for applications for the May 2011 O/L Examination in early January and prospective students are therefore advised to enrol preferably before the end of December 2010.
Union says 90 per cent of academics have handed in their resignations
By Lakna Paranamanna
More than 90 per cent of those in university administration countrywide have tendered their resignation letters to the authorities resulting in administrative functions of universities on the verge of a breaking down, Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) said yesterday.
The FUTA said heads of departments, coordinators of units as well as hostel wardens and centre directors have tendered their resignation letters as part of the trade union action urging the government to give a substantial salary increase to university academics.
FUTA President Nirmal R. Dewasiri said by yesterday a majority of officials holding administrative positions in almost all the universities including Colombo, Moratuwa, Jaffna, Eastern, Ruhuna and Sri Jayewardenepura and the Nawala Open University had handed in their resignation letters.
“We have not received any favourable response from the authorities except for a circular from the University Grants Commission claiming that resignations should be given with three months notice. But it is a futile move as section 51 (III) of the Universities Act No. 16 of 1978 does not refer to the resignation process,” Dr. Dewasiri said.
He said university teachers have been asking the government for a pay hike since last year and added that academics in Sri Lanka had one of the lowest salary scales in South Asia.
Dr. Dewasiri said if the government failed to provide a reasonable solution to the issues faced by the academics they would refrain from attending to the 2011 A/L evaluation process as part of their trade union action.
