Bermuda College

Introduction

Bermuda College is a community college dedicated to offering the highest standards of academic and professional excellence, based not so much on one's background entering - but on what one has been able to achieve upon graduation. It is one of the few community colleges of its size in the Western hemisphere that boasts a virtual campus with wireless coverage available campus-wide!

The College was created by the Parliament of Bermuda through the passage of the Bermuda College Act in 1974 with the amalgamation of three flourishing institutions: the Bermuda Technical Institute established in 1956, the Bermuda Hotel and Catering College (1965), and the Academic Sixth Form Centre (1967).

Vision Statement

Bermuda College will be recognised locally and internationally as a centre for educational excellence, as it responds to the diverse needs of the community through innovative, quality teaching and research that enables students to enrich their lives intellectually, economically, socially, and culturally.

Mission Statement

Bermuda College, the only tertiary level institution in Bermuda, is committed to setting Bermuda’s students on the paths to success through the provision of comprehensive academic and technical education, along with professional training, personal and academic support services, quality facilities, and interactive partnerships with local and international entities.
