The newest campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) was formally launched in Antigua & Barbuda on July 4 at the CARICOM Heads of Government Meeting in 2008.
Th e Open Campus is an amalgamation of the previous Office of the Board for Non-Campus Countries & Distance Education (BNNCDE), the School of Continuing Studies (SCS), the UWI Distance Education Centre (UWIDEC), and the Tertiary Level Institutions Unit (TLIU).
The Campus, which has nearly 50 physical site locations in 17 English-speaking Caribbean countries, offers multi-mode teaching and learning services through virtual and physical site locations across the Caribbean region.
The Open Campus has developed a unique approach in the Caribbean region to enhancing the student experience in innovative continuing and professional education, undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education study programmes and courses by distance, blended, online and face-to-face learning modes.
We offer a three-ti ered registration structure to suit particular needs and educational backgrounds. The system allows our students to move and transfer within the entire University system to reach the required standard.
All of our convenient and high-quality undergraduate, graduate and continuing professional education programmes and courses, have been designed in direct response to meet the changing educational and training needs of the underserved communities across the Caribbean region.
The Open Campus also works closely with our sister UWI Campuses at Cave Hill, Mona and St. Augustine to after many academic options in many key areas for Caribbean and global markets. Read more......Read less
