Top Universities in Bermuda


In accordance with the Bermuda Education Act 1996, only three types of schools are permitted to operate under the Bermuda Educational system:

In an aided school, all or part of the school’s property is held by a board of trustees or board of governors, and the school is partly supported by public money or, since 1965 and the desegregation of schools, has received a grant-in-aid from the federal or state governments.

A maintained school is one in which the government owns all of the land and in which the whole operation is supported entirely by public money.

A private school Bermuda that is not supported by public money and that has not received a capital grant-in-aid from the government since 1965, the year of integration of schools, is referred to be a private school. The number of private schools Bermuda is increasing every year. Two religious schools are included in the private school sector; the other four are secular, with one being a single-gender school and another being a Montessori school. There are six conventional private schools in the sector, two of which are religious schools. A handful of home schools exist in the private sector as well, which must be registered with the government and are subject to only the most limited levels of government control. One of the assisted schools, which had previously been a boys’ school, opened its doors to girls in the 1990s, while another became a private school in 1996.

Prior to 1950, the Bermuda educational system was separated on the basis of race.

Upon implementation of integration legislation in 1965, two of the previous state-maintained white schools and both single-sex schools made the decision to become private institutions of learning. Most of the remaining students were absorbed into the public school system, where they were either assisted or maintained.

It is possible to enroll in the Bermuda Public School System through a variety of means. The system includes 38 institutions including 10 preschools, 18 primary schools, 5 middle schools, two senior high schools (The Berkeley Institute and Cedarbridge Academy), as well as one school for students with physical and cognitive challenges and one school for students with behavioural problems.

Assisted elementary schools, two assisted middle schools, and one aided senior school are available in the area. From 2010 until the present, Portuguese has been offered as an optional foreign language in the Bermuda public school system.

Bermuda College, which provides higher education, offers a variety of associate degrees as well as additional certificate programs.

Bermuda does not have any colleges or institutions that provide Bachelor’s degrees. Bermuda’s alumni often go on to study at Bachelor’s degree-granting institutions in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

The proposal of the Bermudian government to become a contributing member of the University of the West Indies was accepted in May 2009. (UWI). By 2010, as a result of Bermuda’s membership, Bermudian students were allowed to enroll at the institution at a discounted cost that had been agreed upon. The University of the West Indies (UWI) also agreed that its Open Campus (online degree courses) will be made available to Bermudian students in the future, making Bermuda the thirteenth nation to have access to the Open Campus.  As a result of local Bermudan legislation, it was stated that Bermuda will be designated as a “associate contributing nation” in 2010.
