The University of the Southern Caribbean wishes to advise that classes for its first semester of the 2020/2021 School Year will be offered virtually.
The government of Trinidad and Tobago has been successfully managing the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic over the past months through the enforcement of various innovative strategies. Some of the strategies include closure of Educational Institutions as well as the closure of the “borders” to commercial traffic. However, while educational institutions will be allowed to reopen their doors in September, there remains uncertainty as it relates to the reopening of the borders. This will greatly impact the University’s international students and their ability to travel to Trinidad to attend classes for the first semester.
In an effort to ensure that new and continuing students are not debarred from pursuing their degrees, all the courses for the first semester will be offered remotely via online and zoom. All labs and classes with practical components will be offered through the face to face modality.
Students who are required to complete classes with labs, as well as students who are required to complete practicum/internship courses, are asked to contact the Dean or Chair of their School for the details regarding lab completion and practicum/internship hours.
