The St Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies says Chancellor, Robert Bermudez, has approved a request from the Campus to retain current tuition fees for the upcoming Academic Year 2022/2023.
In a media release on Wednesday, the UWI said the request was made consequent to feedback from prospective and current students of the difficulty in committing to registering for the new year given the uncertainty about the new fee levels.
Campus Principal, Professor Brian Copeland said as the UWI looks forward to welcoming new and returning students in September, faculty and staff remain committed to serving students and the broader society to the best of its ability, and in keeping with its status of a globally recognized, world-class higher education institution.
Prof Copeland said citizens who question the value of a University degree in the current economic climate, should come to terms with the fact that a University education is a lifelong investment.
Prof Copeland said the emphasis right now should be on preparing oneself for the future when the economic challenges have significantly improved.
