The Minister of Education Michael Browne says he had “successful” meetings with the University of the West Indies towards establishing the fourth landed campus here.

More meeting are taking place to advance the placement of the Fourth Landed Campus of UWI at Five Islands, “and of an additional program likely to commence in September 2019 when the UWI will open its doors.”

The UWI Fourth Landed Campus is likely to offer a B.A. in Optometry,” the government has announced.

  1. No worries we will start with one class and increase annually, the blue print has been established previously at the Potter’s Second School.

    UWI coming by the crook not the hook.

  2. Nobody in the US, Europe or Asia knows the ‘UWI’ brand, because no country in the world is named ‘UWI’. We would be better off by having a university named ‘National University of Antigua’ (NUA). Let’s combine Antigua State College with a future National University of Antigua. Let’s offer MBA, MSc and PhD programs at NUA and let’s make ourselves known in the world. Tying ourselves with UWI is a waste of time.

    • The average salary of a UWI professor is over 10k EC dollars at UWI ST Augustine…… when the governent can support this Im on board with what ever we doing for a university.

  3. More delays, last time it was interconnecting and networking to the current UWI system, now we are back to talks. Then now a UWI fund has appear. Better we start our own brand as planned.

  4. Even with our limited resources our UWI graduates can stand toe to toe with any of the above mentioned universities even though we have limited resources compared to them.

  5. This can and will happen. Let Us approach this with positive vibes. The Gaston Browne will open the University in September 2019.
