From HandWiki

The University of Guyana Berbice Campus (UGBC) became operational in 2000. This institution was established with the intention of providing quality tertiary-level education to Berbicians and those resolved to expanding their intellectual and social experiences.

During its early stages, UGBC offered two-year undergraduate certificate programmes in education (various options) and diploma programmes in accountancy, English, history, marketing, public management and social work. Degree programmes were subsequently offered: the degree in agriculture and the associate degree in general science (various options) were offered in the 2001-2002 academic year, and degrees in public management and education as well as the post-graduate diploma in education were offered in the 2002-2003 academic year.

Currently, UGBC offers certificate, diploma and associate degrees and degree programmes in four Divisions: the School of Education and Humanities and the Divisions of Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Agriculture.

The Berbice Campus is extensive and spreads out over two locations, one in Tain and another in Johns. In terms of facilities and educational resources, the campus has its own libraries, computer laboratories, science centre, canteen and document centre. There are a number of clubs on campus for students: the Sports Club, the Environmental Club and the UGBC Cultural Club.
