Online education popular in Caribbean

A provider of UK and online distance learning recently celebrated its 500th student in the Caribbean within its University of Wales partnership.

The April 2009 intake brought RDI their 500th University of Wales student for their online degree programmes in the Caribbean.

RDI’s Regional Director, Andrew Cawley, made a presentation to Marlon Bobb-Semple on 1 July at the Hyatt Hotel in Port of Spain where Marlon resides.

According to a press release, this marks a significant milestone for the RDI/University of Wales partnership and demonstrates the allure of the programmes and their flexibility which is ideally suited for working executives.

RDI represents a number of leading UK institutions and is the world’s largest provider of UK online and distance education programmes.

Marlon is studying the MBA with Wales and he was attracted to the programme for its case study based assessment and also because it gives him the option of accelerating his studies and completing in one year should his busy schedule permit.

The University of Wales offers a pathway to the MBA for senior executives without an undergraduate degree through the Master’s Entry Diploma in Management and this has also proved very popular.

RDI have recently enhanced their traditional provision of business management programmes by complementing these with degrees in education, law, psychology and hospitality. All details can be found on
