Welcome and Welcome Back

Welcome to the start of the new academic year! We know that things have had to change as a result of the coronavirus, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to your success as a BC student! Please know that we are very intentional about your safety while on campus; and your learning – whether it be blended or online.

Take the time to get acquainted with all the resources that are available to you: academic and counselling resources, financial assistance, library resources and more. Need a laptop, WiFi access, or a quiet place to study? Check out the IT Department or the Library. Hungry? The College Bookstore serves a variety of cold and hot meals, beverages and snacks to get you through the day, if you’re on campus. They also have a great selection of BC branded masks, t-shirts, clothing, cups and novel gift ideas to browse through.

We look forward to connecting with you in unique ways as we navigate through this time together. It’s going to be a great year!

Visiting Student Initiative 
The College is introducing a ‘Visiting Student’ opportunity, inviting students to spend a semester or a year at home, taking online classes.

“Students who are remaining at home because of uncertainty due to the global pandemic, can continue their studies without interruption by taking courses online at Bermuda College,” says Dr. Phyllis Curtis-Tweed, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. “Bermuda College is accredited and offers high quality programmes. Many overseas institutions will offer their classes online or in blended formats this Fall, and are struggling to address safety concerns in areas like housing and cafeteria services. Credits that visiting students earn at Bermuda College will be transferred to their institutions overseas. So, in addition to excellence in education, Bermuda College is offering peace of mind to parents, and assurances to students that they don’t have put their safety at risk when they choose to study online with us.”
