Bermuda joins family

For the first time, the St Augustine campus hosted the Annual Business Meeting of the University of The West Indies’ Council, and the petition by Bermuda to be recognised as a full contributing country was unanimously accepted. The Government of Bermuda will now contribute to the revenues of the UWI based on an agreed formula, and students from Bermuda will pay tuition fees at the subsidised rate.

Bermuda will be a part of the Open Campus and what is now referred to as the UWI-12 countries: contributing countries which do not host a physical campus, will now be known as the UWI-13.
