One thousand students have benefitted from the tuition payment plan offered by the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies.
That’s according to registrar Ken Walters who told Barbados TODAY that, even so, the number of students who registered for this academic year has not increased much more than the 6,000 at the start of the semester.
The plan was put in place to allow students who had difficulty finding the funds to pay tuition, to pay their fees in installments.
There had been a substantial drop in the number of students pursuing studies at the campus following Government’s announcement that it would no longer be paying the tuition for Barbadians at UWI.
Some university students have been unable to continue their education, with officials reporting a 28.51 per cent decline in registration across the board this year.
