Studying in the Bahamas

As one of the wealthiest nations in the West Indies, Bahamas offers quite a number of studying opportunities to interested foreigners. Students interested in pursuing higher education studies can look into the range of courses offered by the local College of the Bahamas. A wide range of classes, from Business and Nursing to Culinary and Hospitality are available. The College accepts online applications from international students, but you can also contact your own home university for any affiliate programmes, especially if you are looking to obtain a scholarship.

As sailing is the country’s national sport, there are many courses organised in the Bahamas you can choose from. While you are at it, you can also look into free diving, scuba diving, surfing, or snorkelling classes. Interested students can enjoy such activities, as well as exploring the Bahamian culture and way of life through youth education programmes organised by their home university. Such programmes are typically short in length, but they can even help you earn credits.

Due to the nation’s unique location in the Atlantic Ocean, the Bahamas offers quite a few interesting study opportunities. Marine biology and Geology are two popular option amongst international students looking to further their education.

Some nationalities will only require a valid passport and a tourist visa in order to pursue a study programme in the Bahamas, but it is always best to check with a local embassy.
