Financing: Special Notes for Postgraduate Students
Your offer letter and the financial booklet would have indicated whether your programme is UGC-funded or self-financing
  • Use the financial booklet or visit the Tuition and Other Fees website to determine all fees that will apply for Semester 1 and pay these in full ahead of registration week. 
  • Note that any additional balances created if you add or drop courses during the period September 4 – 15, 2017 or if you register late must be settled immediately thereafter.

If you need a statement at any time you can request one from the Bursary in person or by email at studentaccounts@cavehill.uwi.edu.
 
All fees are set by University Council and are subject to revision every year. 

Full-time vs Part-time for the postgraduate student
  • Once you are taking the maximum course load you are considered a full-time student even though the courses may be delivered in the evening and on weekends.
  • If you are taking less than a full course load, you are considered a part-time student.
  • If you are a research student and working for more than 12 hours a week you cannot register as a full-time student.
  • If you have a scholarship you must be a full-time student.
  • All regional and international students are expected to register as full-time students.
 
Scholarships
If you applied for a 2017-2018 scholarship before the deadline of May 30, 2017 you will get correspondence from the School for Graduate Studies and Research on the outcome of your application early in July.

The application date and scholarships available for the 2018-2019 academic year will be posted on the Graduate Studies website in early 2018. 

From time to time the Campus receives scholarship invitations and other opportunities for postgraduate students from various agencies.  These scholarships and opportunities are all posted on the Graduate Studies website when received.

You should bookmark the Scholarship page and check it occasionally during the semester.

Additional fees for postgraduate students
These are all listed in the Financial Information booklet available from the Tuition and Other Fees website.
 

Special Note to Students from Trinidad and Tobago
The Government of Trinidad and Tobago provides Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE) to cover half of the tuition costs for postgraduate degree programmes at Cave Hill.  Students must apply on-line to GATE before the start of the semester to ensure that their programme of study is eligible for GATE funding.

Funds are also provided through the Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) which covers living and miscellaneous expenses in Barbados.
 
For further information on GATE or HELP consult http://www.ttconnect.gov.tt/
