General Information

The Mico University College (The Mico) is a tertiary education institution in Kingston, Jamaica. The focus of the institution is on teacher training, but programmes in a variety of disciplines are also offered. The Mico provides diverse opportunities for the achievement of higher education through flexible and comprehensive Bachelor's, Master's, Post Diploma and certificate programmes.

The Mico was founded in 1835 through the Lady Mico Charity, one of four teacher training institutions established during this period in the British colonies and the only one to survive to the present. We are the oldest teacher training institution in the western hemisphere and English speaking world.

The Mico University College was established as a non-denominational Christian institution that caters both to male and female students. Over the years we have undergone expansion, both physically and in our academic programmes.

In the 1970's the government began training teachers for children with special needs, as well as providing funding for the training of teachers in these schools. Consequently, The Mico was selected by the government as the college to offer this training. By the 1980s, The Mico was not only providing such teachers for schools in Jamaica but for the entire English speaking Caribbean.

In addition, through assistance from the government of the Netherlands, the college established The Mico University College Diagnostic and Therapeutic Centre (the CARE Centre) to diagnose the learning challenges of children with multiple handicaps. The work at the Centre also led to the design of individualised instructional techniques for these students. Our centre is the only one of its kind in the Commonwealth Caribbean and has gained international recognition.

The University College offers undergraduate degree programmes through three faculties: the faculty of Education and Liberal Arts, the faculty of Humanities and the faculty of Science and Technology. Each faculty is managed by a dean.

Additionally, further studies are being offered through the School of Continuing Studies which supports students in upgrading their qualifications to enable them to matriculate into undergraduate and graduate programme.
