Welcome to University College of the Cayman Islands

Transformative. Inclusive. Nation-building.

For more than 45 years, the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) has been transforming the lives of Cayman's residents as the nation's premier provider of post-secondary education. Established as a Community College in 1975, our historic beginnings were fueled by the changing needs of our developing society. 

Today, UCCI has evolved into Cayman's choice for comprehensive tertiary education, offering innovative programmes that prepare students for a lifetime of personal and professional successes. The university college offers a variety of certificates, undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as continuing and professional education courses, and workforce training programmes. We are prepared to assist students at any chapter in the story of their lives.

UCCI believes in a holistic approach to education. We seek to provide high-impact teaching and learning, and a vibrant student life experience, enriched by leadership development, co-curricular activities and a host of support services.

We celebrate our students’ successes and are proud to be a part of building our nation. UCCI is where education and real-world experiences converge to create the best academic setting where anyone can access quality education in Cayman.

Join our thriving intellectual community of nearly 2,000 students and 70 full-time faculty and staff members representing 30 nationalities and a broad spectrum of expertise. Whatever you want to become, do or achieve, start your success story at UCCI.
