Status Letter (Degree Completion)

A status letter (degree completion letter) officially confirms that you have fulfilled your degree requirements and completed your programme of study.

CARIBBEAN SINGLE MARKET & ECONOMY (CSME) LETTER

A Caribbean Single Market Economy (CSME) letter is provided by the University to the Ministry of Labour as a requirement for a graduate to obtain “A Certificate of Recognition of Caribbean Community Skilled Person”. It is very similar to the status letter but is addressed directly to the Ministry of Labour. A graduate who requires a CSME letter must request this at the Customer Service desk.
