Partnering with NSRIC
NSRIC’s main objective is to disseminate knowledge to serve mankind. It is a central hub that promotes collaboration, aimed at building a long-term partnership to achieve the stated goals. To accomplish the vision and mission, NSRIC delivers academic and vocational courses through its online platform and will establish onsite NSRIC international schools and NSRIC universities worldwide. NSRIC offers a wide variety of courses, ranging from the Kindergarten to Grade 12 program through the NSRIC International School in Toronto (NIST) to undergraduate and graduate levels courses through our proposed universities as well as non-degree, short-term courses through NSRIC, described in “classifications of courses” please visit: (https://nsric.ca/online-education/).
Building an institutional model for collaborating with NSRIC
NIST is operated by NSRIC, which is the central organization. For partnership, you can join us through our two major institutions and our proposed university project:
NSRIC offers three franchise institutional models to the interested individuals for establishing NSRIC study centres, schools, and universities. The three models are described below:
Model I – Partnership Study Centre (PSC – M.1):
1. NIST Education
Model I is a NIST study centre designated as “Partnership Study Centre (PSC – M.1)”. NIST is an online government-approved private school based in London, Ontario, Canada, which follows the Ontario school board curriculum. PSC – M.1 envisages a physical NIST study centre (i.e., in a designated space) with a strong internet connection. This study centre will facilitate a flavour of the school environment for our local students from Kindergarten to Grades 12. This model will be treated as a support centre where students would undertake our Canadian School Board-approved online programs. Additionally, PSC – M.1 will provide our students with support teacher(s) depending on the volume of student enrolment (e.g., 30 students per teacher). The support teacher(s) will complement the pre-recorded lessons to assist the students. Moreover, these teachers will also help the students to better understand the course materials while recorded video clips are in progress during the lectures at the local time zone. The PSC – M.1 model requires at least 3 (three) classrooms with modern, well-equipped audio-visual facilities. Also required are strong internet connectivity and office spaces for administration and teachers.
2. NSRIC Education:
PSC – M.1 also includes an option to operate a NSRIC study centre that offers a physical space to study with reliable internet connections. The NSRIC study centre will facilitate students to meet each other, learn together, and have one-to-one support. Additionally, it will also offer extracurricular activities to students such as enhancing academic skills, writing research papers in the Western context, preparing reports, and offering career advice. The NSRIC study centre is an additional support for NSRIC students. However, it is not mandatory to link this option with the “NIST Study Centre.”
Model II – Partnership NSRIC School (PNS – M.2):
1. NIST Local School Branch
Model II is a complete NSRIC international onsite school campus designated as “Partnership NSRIC School (PNS – M.2).” This model involves the establishment of an on-campus school in a NSRIC partnership. Such Partnership NSRIC School branches would follow Canadian policies and standards, government-approved academic and NSRIC hybrid curriculum (NHC), and be a student success centre at your location. Additionally, PNS – M.2 will be assisting our students with support teacher(s), depending on the volume of student enrolment (e.g., 30 students per teacher). PNS – M.2 must have facilities such as: (i) strong internet connectivity, (ii) academic programs approved by the Ministry of Education, Ontario, Canada, (iii) appropriate, sustainable environment for Kindergarten to Grades 12, (iv) highly educated teachers and trained support staff, (v) easy access to academic resources provided by NSRIC to enhance students’ education which the assigned teachers will strictly follow; (vi) NSRIC education package (i.e., video clips, PPTs, word documents, pdf, excel sheets, and other required course materials, etc.) for a clearer insight of the course, (vii) opportunity to gain admission into any well-reputed university in Canada, or the USA, and other top-ranked universities worldwide and (viii) pathway to be a permanent resident in Canada by studying in any Canadian university after receiving the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) upon completing Grade 12 from NIST. The teachers will (i) conduct classes onsite according to the academic calendar set by the Ontario School Board, Ministry of Education, Canada and (ii) rigorously follow the course materials available from the centralized NSRIC portal.
2. NSRIC Education:
PNS – M.2 also includes an option to operate NSRIC facilities that offer an onsite study centre with a strong internet connection. The NSRIC onsite centre will facilitate students to meet each other, learn together, and have one-to-one support. Additionally, it will also provide extracurricular activities to students such as enhancing academic skills, writing research papers in the Western context, preparing reports, and offering career advice. The NSRIC onsite centre is an additional support for NSRIC students. However, it is not mandatory to link this option with “NIST on-campus school.”
