Barbados is proving to be an attractive location for international medical universities. The most recent ones to set up here are Bridgetown International University (BIU) and Victoria University of Barbados (VUB), both located at Building No.2, Harbour Road, St Michael. They bring the number of international medical schools operating on the island to seven.
Both BIU and VUB are expected to accept their first intake of students – approximately 500 each – from September 1, 2018. They will consist of persons from India, Ghana, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Nepal. The two schools have teamed up with one of India’s largest education providers, Rus Education India Pvt. Limited, to ensure that the venture is a success.
