Welcome to Roots IVY International Flagship Campus
History: Roots Saga:
Roots Ivy International University is a project of Roots Ivy International Schools. It has been synonymous with excellence and high quality education since 2003 when it was first launched as Roots College International in Harley Street.
It is a privately owned, coeducational institution of High recognition nationally and internationally. Its remarkable history can be traced back to April 1988 when The Roots School System was founded under the dynamic leadership of Mrs. Riffat Mushtaq.
However, Roots Undergraduate programme was established over a decade ago by Ms. Khadija Mushtaq to provide continuation of the British system of education at the undergraduate level. The main objective of the establishment of the college was to provide high quality, internationally recognized undergraduate education opportunity to the students of Islamabad/Rawalpindi. In line with this commitment, she decided to launch the University of London International Programmes through distant learning.
Ms. Khadija Mushtaq who has been instrumental in motivating and inspiring young Pakistani students to compete at international level in highly competitive examinations was able to convince after arduous negotiations with Ms. Rosemary Gosling, Director of Institutional Liaison, University of London International Programmes at LSE to grant recognition for this programme to Roots College International in 2003. So far it has produced almost 300 Law and Business Graduates.
By 2004 LLB, University of London International programmes was added to the portfolio along with the growing numbers of BSC students. IN 2007, ACCA programme was introduced to add more diversity to the college education.
After the success of the initial years and growing numbers adding to the high public demand in due course, led to the establishment of a new dedicated campus. Thus in 2008, the flagship campus was shifted to the DHA Phase 1 Campus. Ms. Rosemary Gosling later remarked that, “Time has certainly proved that Roots continues to grow by leaps and bounds”
The UOL programme’s alumni studying at Roots College International DHA/ IVY have set a history of producing phenomenal success with ‘Distinctions’ ; ‘Top in the World’ and ‘Highest 10% Scorer in the history of University of London’. Thus In recognition of its sustained commitment to excellence in providing quality higher education, Roots College International was awarded the most prestigious status of an ‘Affiliate Centre’ in 2009 by the University Of London. This Affiliate Centre is one among only three awarded in Pakistan and among a very few throughout the world.
In 2012, With the inception of Roots IVY international Schools under the dynamic leadership of Mrs. Khadija Mushtaq , this project was reclaimed by the Roots Ivy International Schools, who has been the founder and managing Director of the Programme since its inception. 2012, was a year marked by new milestones set by Roots College International.
