Summer School 2017


INFORMATION GUIDE

MAY 29 - JULY 28



Overview

The Summer School programme of the Faculty of Science and Technology is optional; however, the University regulations will still be observed. Summer school courses that UWI students pursue during a period of withdrawal shall be included in all relevant grade point average (GPA) calculations. Any semester in which a student is registered part-time including the summer session, will be counted as half of a semester of full-time study. The Summer School programme is normally scheduled during the period June to July; consequently, there are approximately twelve weeks of teaching and examinations. The faculty welcomes students outside of the faculty to enroll in the summer school programme once they have met the faculty matriculation requirements.
