An Ontario Secondary School Diploma is one of the most well-respected secondary school diplomas around the world. Not only can an OSSD help students earn acceptance into many worldwide universities, but it is extremely useful for students who want to earn acceptance into Canadian universities.
As a mature student in Myanmar, Win Pe saw these advantages and decided to work towards earning a Canadian high school diploma. However, he didn’t want to leave him home country of Myanmar just yet, which complicated this dream. Thankfully, he discovered Ontario Virtual School, which would allow him to earn an OSSD all the way from Myanmar.
Win graduated with his OSSD in February 2021. We reached out to have him share a little about his experience with OVS, and he was kind enough to provide us with the following responses.

I took seven courses at OVS, including International Business Fundamentals, World History since the Fifteenth Century, Canadian and International Politics, Canadian and International Law, Philosophy , Challenge and Change in Society, and English.
