Our Institution

We lead, we blaze trails, we innovate.

The University College of the Cayman Islands has never let size stand in the way of achievement – and this "Little University that Could" has been making giant strides for education and community development not only in the Islands, but in the region.

Since its inception as a Community College in 1975, UCCI transformed from being a part-time establishment to a full-fledged tertiary level institution offering a plethora of programmes in the Associate, Bachelor and Master's levels as well as Professional Education and Workforce Training.

Cayman's premier provider of tertiary education has become the institution of choice for many Caymanians and expatriates alike, as they are able to experience the demands of a University environment right on their doorstep. Beginning with the establishment of the Dr. Wm. Hrudey Observatory in 2012, UCCI continues to blaze trails in STEM education through its landmark STEM Carib conference, summer camp and other initiatives. Students at UCCI also benefit from a Performing Arts programme that includes a choir, a dance troupe and a multi-awarded steelpan band, the UCCI Pandemix. Through UCCI's international partnerships, students enjoy various study abroad, immersion and internship opportunities.


UCCI's academic and extra-curricular programmes provide an avenue for students' talents and creativity to take centrestage.


The University College of the Cayman Islands is accredited by Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC). UCCI's business and management programmes are accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE). The Nursing Council of Jamaica (NCJ) provides accreditation for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
