By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Internationally recognized Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) is having a recruitment drive/ information session at the Radisson in Belize City on Tuesday, February 8.
ENU offers online programmes which are recognized by Belize’s Ministry of Education. These programmes allow students quite a bit of flexibility to complete their bachelors or master’s degree programmes.
Andrew Cawley, CEO of Southpoint Education International, ENU representatives in the Americas, will be in person at the Radisson’s Cahal Pech Room from 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm to meet prospective students.
According to Cawley approximately 400 Belizean students are enrolled in ENU, which has 20,000 students at its three campuses in Edinburgh, Scotland, and 6,000 online. Fifty percent of the online population are from the Caribbean.
We have recruited over 4,000 students since 2012 in the Caribbean alone
“We’ve been offering these online programmes since 2012 in Belize. They are recognized by the authorities there. They are accredited programmes,” Cawley said.
“We are the number one modern university in Scotland and the number one for value added, as well, according to The Guardian (British) newspaper.”
ENU is offering a range of new programmes, including BSc Computing (Top-up), BSc Nursing Studies (Top-up), MSc Transport Planning and Engineering, MSc Data Engineering, and Post Graduate Certificate in Career Development.
Cawley’s visit is to recruit students for the May 2022 intake. ENU does three intakes per year: In January, May, and September.
“Our tuition fees are very attractive,” says Cawley. “Under US$10,000 for a master’s degree and under US$5000 for a bachelor’s degree.”
“This is another reason why our programmes are very popular across the Caribbean. We are realistically pricing them for this region, for Central America and, in fact, they’re a lot cheaper than our US fees. We have a special fee for Central America and the Caribbean,” Cawley added.
“We get a lot of students from Belize interested in our programs, from the public sector and the private sector. Our popular programmes are the MBA. We have a Masters of Business Administration programme with 12 different specializations,” Cawley said.
“We also have what we call Top Up programs. If a student has an associate’s degree in Business Management or Business Administration they can join our BA Business Management and earn their bachelor’s degree in one year. So that’s proven very popular in Belize,” Cawley said.
Cawley said that ENU considers work experience as part of entry requirements. This benefits people who have work experience and have decided to go back to school.
“You can do the MBA in a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of four years,” Cawley said.
Cawley said they normally get a good turnout at their recruitment sessions, so you reserve your place at www.seidegrees.com or by calling (1) 239 444 4399. Alternatively, you can LIVE CHAT and ENU’s friendly staff will be happy to assist you.
