“Offshore college code coming”


Standards and legislation are coming to regulate overseas universities, especially medical universities, looking to set up shop in Barbados.

Word of this has come from Prime Minister Mia Mottley, who was speaking in the wake of the crisis enveloping the St Philip-based Washington University of Barbados.

She has lambasted former Minister of Education Ronald Jones, while promising that Attorney General Dale Marshall would soon make a statement on the matter.

“We are going to make sure that that draft legislation comes, because Barbados must never have the indignity again of having a minister of Government act in a way that would cause students to believe they are entitled to receive some kind of degree that has not yet been set up to receive,” the Prime Minister declared.
