Our history in the Caribbean:

The University of London has a long history in the Caribbean, with students first taking our exams in the 1870s. The University of the West Indies awarded University of London degrees before it became independent in 1962.

Among our famous alumni are the late Derek Walcott, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992; the Honourable Arthur N.R. Robinson, former President of Trinidad and Tobago; Percival Patterson, Jamaica’s longest serving prime minister; and Howard Cooke, a former Governor-General of Jamaica.

Study independently or at a local institution

In Trinidad and Tobago, you can choose to study for our qualifications at a local independent teaching institution, or by distance learning.
