Tuition awards of $2,500 on offer through UWI virtual open house
A virtual open house at the University of the West Indies with a chance to win one of four $2,500 tuition awards is to be held next Thursday.
Diallo Rabain, the education minister, said the session would give potential students the chance to learn about distance learning at the UWI, as well as attending in person.
Mr Rabain added that Bermuda was an associate country member of the UWI, which allowed Bermudian students cheaper tuition fees.
He said that an agreement to transfer credits earned at Bermuda College to a UWI degree programme was in the pipeline.
Mr Rabain added: “We understand that going to university can be a large financial commitment, however the Bermuda Government is dedicated to fostering opportunities that allow our students to pursue their educational goals.
“With that in mind, we strongly encourage more Bermudians to take advantage of the preferred tuition pricing available through our relationship with the UWI so that they can follow their dreams and positively contribute to our island home.”
The UWI event will run from 7.30pm to 9pm and will include a Q and A session.
Everyone taking part will be entered into a draw for the tuition awards, redeemable when they enrol in the UWI’s open campus distance learning programme.
