Testimonial, Sebastien Durbano, French National

Programme/s of study: ASc in Information Technology; BSc in Accounting and Finance
Years attended: 2012-2017
My name is Sebastien Durbano and I am a French national who grew up in Italy. I came to Jamaica about five years ago and enrolled in the Associate Degree program in Information Technology at UCC. After completing that I moved into the Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and Finance. I chose UCC because of the flexibility they offer in terms of their programme delivery. I was able to attend early bird, evening and Sunday classes in order to accomplish my goal much faster. It also helped that I did not need CAPE subjects to matriculate since I am not coming from that kind of system. READ MORE


Testimonial, Serge Tshamala, Congo

The faculty and staff at this institution are top rate, and want their students to do well. My lecturers and the staff of the International Office were very attentive about my progress in the business administration program in which I was enrolled. Today, I’m grateful that with that attention and support, I was able to hone my analytical skills and successfully achieve my academic aspirations. This was exactly the program I was looking for.”
