Oshwal College was established in January 1992. It is the elder institution of the many nursery, primary and secondary school institutions run and owned by the Oshwal Education and Relief Board (OERB) – a charitable organization in Kenya. Established first at Oshwal High School premises, growth in student numbers and introduction of more courses created the demand for expansion thereby moving to Westlands Road in 1994.
In spite of the appropriate facility, OERB was not satisfied because its vision had been to give Oshwal College its own campus. After a decade of planning, its efforts came to fruition on September 27 2004 when we moved to our new location on 2nd Parklands Avenue.
Our results and popularity bear testimony to the uncompromising quality of our institution. There is a refined academic and professional atmosphere, which prevails at the campus.
To date, over 5690 students have graduated in various courses. The total student strength averages 500 each semester, consisting of 75% Kenyans with the rest coming from other parts of Africa and beyond. These include Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Congo, Togo, Nigeria, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Britain and India.
Our academic programs are meant to open a future for secondary school leavers and those already employed. These courses are offered by local and international professional organizations. Students register, subscribe and pay for examinations to these professional bodies with the College’s necessary assistance.
In addition to the intensive teaching, the College conducts internal examinations and intensive revision courses during the semester so as to equip students well for final exams. The programs currently offered in three departments; Accounting and Finance, Business Management and Information Technology.
