Barbados may soon be welcoming another American university to its shores.
Prime Minister Mia Mottley today revealed that talks with Chamberlain University have already begun and she was hoping those discussions can soon be “wrapped up”.
She made the disclosure during a tour of the Villages at Coverley, where 1,500 students and staff at the Ross University School of Medicine will reside.
Chamberlain University is a for-profit healthcare and nursing school that offers bachelor, master and doctoral degree programmes in nursing, and a public health master’s degree.
While not disclosing detail, Mottley, who visited the area along with Minister of Tourism Kerri Symmonds, Minister of Health and Wellness Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic, Acting Minister of Education Lucille Moe and officials from Ross University, said Government was using Ross as a test run.
