UWI Discover Series

The UWI's DISCOVER Series offers study tours that provide immersion in the culture, history, politics, architecture and people of the BRICS countries.

Led by expert academic tour guides, the project was started at the St. Augustine Campus in 2012 with an inaugural visit to India. The International Office plans to add Brazil, South Africa and China over the next 3 years.

The UWI's DISCOVER Series aims to further the internationalisation agenda of the University, an issue which is central to its new strategic plan for the period 2012-2017. Participants will be immersed in all contemporary aspects of these global powers with the aim of ensuring that cadres of Caribbean leaders (current and in the future) are not only sensitive to these countries, but are also versed in their uniqueness, cultures, customs and most importantly, the opportunities for the Caribbean to engage in constructive partnerships.
