Girl Power Cayman pays visit to UCCI

Girl Power Cayman recently visited the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) to learn about tertiary education.

On January 4, the non-profit organization was welcomed by UCCI's President & CEO, Dr Stacy McAfee and Admissions Manager, Camile Angel, who introduced them to UCCI's different programmes of study, information about the different scholarships available, and what steps to take to enrol at UCCI.

The young members toured the campus, experienced a day in the life of a UCCI student and had the opportunity to interact with some of the faculty and staff.  

"We hope that Girl Power Cayman members consider UCCI to continue their professional education and workforce training programmes; we are equipped to assist students at any chapter of their story," said UCCI's President & CEO, Dr Stacy McAfee.

"The seminar at UCCI was very informative and insightful. We truly appreciate Ms. Stacy and Ms. Camille for educating us on scholarships, applying to university and all about programs at UCCI. Many of our Girl Power participants are now thinking about University and applying for scholarships so this was a much needed and timely discussion," added Pamela Small of Girl Power Cayman.

UCCI offers dual diplomas to students who wish to obtain a local degree in addition to US and UK accredited degrees. If you are interested in attending UCCI, visit or set up an appointment with the admissions team by calling 623-0567.
