EducationUSA advising center at Barbados Community College

The EducationUSA advising center at the Barbados Community College, in Bridgetown Barbados, offers professional educational advising services to approximately 300 students during 2014. Operating at the comprehensive level, our advising center services students who are interested in engaging in academic exchange between Barbados and the U.S. From participating in short term exchanges, enrolling into full academic degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels at accredited U.S. higher education institutions, our EducationUSA advising center promotes a wide variety of academic opportunities and supports students, parents, teachers, local governments and higher education institutions in their efforts to achieve their academic mobility goals.
The center provides a variety of educational services, including free introductory public information sessions on various topics of U.S. education, webinars, individual consultations on U.S. study, and application support services. It also provides logistical support to accredited U.S. higher education institutions on recruitment in Barbados as well as supports open public events such as presentations and fairs to promote exchange opportunities working closely with the local educational community.
Our host Barbados Community College is a dynamic centre of learning which exists to meet the changing education, training and development needs of the societies that it serves, by providing a range of courses and programmes of study in a learning environment conducive to the intellectual, physical and social development of students and staff, so that they can make a meaningful contribution to their country, region and the wider world community.
