Faculty & Staff Opportunities
The UWI, St. Augustine Campus sees the mobility of faculty and staff between our campus and our international partners as a core component of our internationalization and capacity building strategies.
Many of the UWI's current collaborative agreements with institutions from around the world contain provisions that allow for the exchange of faculty and staff. These exchanges can take place in the form of short term visits, semester-long exchanges or even longer forms of mobility based upon specific objectives of the faculty/staff member.
Interested faculty and staff, either from The UWI or not, should contact the International Office in order to develop customized mobility.
The Canada-CARICOM Faculty Leadership Program provides faculty or international liaison officers/managers from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) with short-term exchange opportunities for professional development, graduate study or research at Canadian post-secondary institutions.
Citizens of the CARICOM or its associated member states
Candidates with Canadian Dual-Citizenship are NOT eligible
The short term mobility can be done at any Canadian Post-Secondary Institution, including our existing partner university
