2013-08-17 08:13:31 | (0 Comments)
The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) has advised students entering tertiary institutions to ensure that their schools of choice are registered and the courses have been properly accredited.
Grace Gordon, director of accreditation at the council, says persons applying to several of the new colleges and universities being advertised must take extra precaution.
She says many of these schools may not be approved to offer tertiary programmes.
She says there are only 46 institutions registered in the country to offer degrees, diplomas or any other tertiary certifications.
Of this 46, only three of these have been granted university status; these are the University of the West Indies, University of Technology, and Northern Caribbean University.
