This is independent "ground-breaking" research in the Social / Behavioral Sciences, the first of its kind - to address gaps in the body of knowledge, and the geographic region.

The school is modeled in some ways off the British system . And degrees at the doctoral level can be earned as RESEARCH ONLY, where minimal, to no class work, or a Master's degree, for that matter, may not be requirements, to matriculate to doctoral status, but rather the "quality" of that undergraduate degree. Places the onus of scholarship on the student, in collaboration with that advisor and subsequently the Doctoral Committee. Thus, scholarship is rigorous, bypasses quite efficiently coursework, comprehensive exams, and focuses directly on the research / dissertation....does not in any manner compromise the scholarship.

Please see previous - I am current registered at an "off-shore" university that that does not require my presence for classes. I also do not utilize the school's resources being domiciled in the U.S. However, it is my alma mater, and it has served me well previously.

YOUR system would NOT ALLOW for the school's name, which is the UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES, MONA CAMPUS, in KINGSTON, JAMAICA, WEST INDIES - kept kicking the data out! Because I DO NOT actively utilize the resources of the campus, it is hard to assess or make a very objective comment on this. Yet the university sends me e-mails regarding pertinent seminars that could be of interest /relevant to doctoral retention / completion with regards to research methodology, writing strategies, etc., that were I in residence I could find attendance useful.

This is a research ONLY degree program...but because of my academic
background, the minimum class participation required of doctoral candidates has been waived, in my case.

I chose this school because it accredited and quite flexible for me as I try to work and study. It is also a widely recognized school and that can be helpfully in finding a job as well/

it is not so much as some courses are not exposed to students the way they should be
Recent Alumnus 2012-10-18T04:22:53Z
only great because my professors go all out in proving materials.

The professors are really Good, Well Qualified and they seem to not be as selfish as the school is

The facilities provided are adequate but most of the gym equipment does not work or sometimes even provides a safety risk.

Internet is extremely slow, unreliable, and sometimes it does not even work.

While online courses were available I chose not to do any. For this reason I cannot give an honest and personal evaluation. However, I have some friends who did online courses and they explained it as the best academic decision ever.

Academic Program- International Relations – It great to study International Relations at the University of the West Indies once it is something that you are really interested in doing. You need to have a passion for the subject area. The work load can sometimes be extensive but the topics are all relevant for the real world experience after college. The biggest disadvantage is that different professors have different teaching styles and sometimes its its hard to get adjusted to the different ways of teaching and the expectations of professors. One of the best parts of the program was the small tutorial classes where students got an opportunity to make presentations and public speeches.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
