Free Education in Trinidad & Tobago

Postby KarenS » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:05 pm

In order to foster development in the twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), the government has proposed extending a helping hand to undergraduate students. The plan includes a, “full tuition subsidy at the undergraduate level to all students enrolled in state funded institutions.”

The ‘cost’ of acquiring a degree at the government’s expense comes in the form of graduates paying their dues to Trinbagonian society. The government has proposed that graduates work in Trinidad and Tobago for one to three years following graduation, with the time span dependent on the tuition costs (the higher the tuition, the more time spent working in T&T). Jobs can be obtained in the private or public sector. Officials hope the agreement will facilitate continued economic growth and higher productivity across the two-island Nation.

I wonder if you have to be a citizen of Trinidad/Tobago?

I was wondering if you ever found out if it just applies to citizens.
