Joint Bermuda College/UWI education diploma suspended
A Diploma in Education programme run by Bermuda College in association with The University of the West Indies has been suspended on a temporary basis.
But a spokeswoman for the college said that the college still had a partnership with the Caribbean university.
She added: “The college is currently working on a partnership with the Open Campus in Mona, Jamaica, by way of an memorandum of understanding that was signed earlier in the summer.
“Those students in the latest cohort who successfully completed the course requirements have graduated.
“The Diploma in Education programme addresses teaching certification and is temporarily suspended while under review. It can be a necessarily lengthy process.”
But the college did not respond to questions on why the joint programme had been suspended.
Bermuda has had associate country status with UWI since 2010, which gives Bermudian students access to cheaper tuition fees.
Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, said last June: “In the works is a memorandum of understanding and articulation agreement between the Bermuda College and The University of West Indies, an agreement that will allow credits earned at Bermuda College to be transferred directly towards a degree programme in the UWI Open Campus.”
