About the International Office

The International Office at the Cave Hill Campus was established in July of 2008 as a response to the UWI 2007-2012 strategic plan’s objective to internationalise the University of the West Indies. Its primary functions are to promote study abroad and facilitate academic exchanges for students and faculty.


It also negotiates strategic partnerships with foreign universities, international bodies, foundations and the international private sector, so as to continue to enhance the campus and university goals of excellence in teaching and learning and research.


If you are interested in spending a portion of your academic career at another institution, we offer you a number of exciting possibilities around the world.  The International Office provides students who are interested in participating in the student exchange programme, resources, advice, support throughout the application process, pre-departure orientation, advice and assistance while overseas, and support on return to the Cave Hill Campus.

In addition, the International Office offers assistance to students coming to the Cave Hill Campus on exchange programmes from overseas partner universities and students from other countries who wish to study at with us for one semester or an academic year.

We look forward to facilitating your Education Abroad experience!
