We're Back!

And there's lots to share!

Remote Learning Details

Due to the large number of students who have not been able to attend face-to-face classes due to having to quarantine and the delay in getting Covid test results because of the increased testing on the island, Bermuda College has moved all non-laboratory classes to remote learning with effect from Monday, September 13.

All experiential classes and labs will be held on campus with current protocols still in place. These classes include: art, culinary arts, nursing, science, and technical education labs, in addition to PACE bartending, BOMI and personal fitness courses (WITS).

All services at the College, including the Library, remain open to students.

What's New on Campus

New Building1CDC BUILDING  – The College’s new Athene Career Development Centre project has been a visual reminder throughout the Summer of the vision and commitment of our community and corporate partners to provide a state-of-the-art facility for Bermuda’s students. We are particularly grateful to the Bermuda College Foundation (BCF) and our corporate partners - Athene Life Re Ltd., a reinsurance subsidiary of Athene Holding Ltd. (“Athene”), Athora Holding Ltd., Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited, and Catalina Holdings (Bermuda) Ltd. This project has been the most significant development to the College’s facilities and infrastructure in the past twenty-five years. It will set the standard for classrooms, labs and office space as a globally competitive learning facility with adaptive technologies and innovative collaboration spaces, to meet the needs of the 21st century student and the wider community. We anticipate a formal opening ceremony in September.

It features:

 A model classroom
 A model computer lab
 An Innovation Lab
 A modernized and upgraded Lecture Theatre
 The re-located offices of the Division of Professional and Career Education (PACE)

New Building1CENTRE FOR LEARNING & ACADEMIC SUCCESS (C.L.A.S.) – Formerly the Academic Resource Centre, the new name signals a fresh approach to student success; revitalising the image and presence of the Centre at the College; and paving the way for future growth and development. C.L.A.S. now incorporates the more recent responsibilities added to its remit, such as the College Skills Course, new student orientation, First Year Experience and most recently, academic advising.

NEW FOOD ITEMS – Make sure you stop by the Bermuda College Bookstore to discover new items added to old favourites.

NEW LOOK – The campus re-brand continues with the installation of the long-awaited clings on the windows of our buildings. This will continue in a phased approach.  Right now, you can see logo and tagline on the College Centre, the Library, the Counselling & Career Centre and along the veranda of the Centre for Learning and Academic Success. More to come!
