Study Abroad

Study Abroad Regulations

  • Where students may be migrating or may be away from the country for a significant period and have few courses to complete their UWI degree, there may be discretionary decisions made by the Faculty and sanctioned by Academic Board.
  • It should be noted that first year (Level I) courses in the American Four Year Undergraduate Programme will NOT usually warrant any exemption from UWI courses. 
  • When students’ results are received from the overseas university, they will then receive credit for the courses as substitutes as approved by the Academic Board.
  • The grade recorded will be the grade received and assessed and approved by the Academic Board as the equivalent of that awarded by the examining university.
