Barriteau upbeat despite student numbers at Cave Hill
Low enrolment numbers at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus appear to have bottomed out.
In making that declaration Friday evening at the matriculation ceremony for a new cohort of students, principal Professor Eudine Barriteau expressed hope that the numbers “will rise again, albeit, gradually”.
Enrolment has been down since 2014 after the Government’s decision to stop paying the tuition fee of Barbadians.
At the end of last month there were 1 164 new students, of which 1 032 are undergraduates. Total enrolment currently stands at 4 203, with 3 886 being undergrads. (WILLCOMM)
