The Open Campus in Trinidad & Tobago



Dear Stakeholders

I send you warm greetings at the start of Academic Year 2020-2021. By now you would have realized that our previous ways of operating, as physical Sites in Trinidad and Tobago, have had to be adjusted due to country restrictions imposed by the COVID 19 pandemic response. However, rest assured the new normal has always been The UWI Open Campus’ normal, as the online campus of The University of the West Indies. As such, Sites in Trinidad and Tobago are receiving the necessary guidance to support you in your continued educational pursuits.

All Sites and Centers, therefore, will run courses and programmes virtually for Semester 1. These plans, of course, are subject to change based on new information or guidance from the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. Please, therefore, make full use of our webpages here to find out more information.

Your success is central to our mission at The UWI Open Campus. Any time you have questions or feel unsure about how to proceed in your academic journey, please reach out to us immediately. We are here to support you every step of the way in your journey.

Best wishes for a fruitful and healthy year!

- Mrs Karen Rosemin
