Antiguan students can learn in this dummy ward

Antigua and Barbuda will soon produce medical professionals after opening a new university that will facilitate medical studies.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne was at the opening ceremony last week for the Western Imperial Medical University at Crabb’s Peninsula where the YIDA Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is located.

Browne said that this major educational institution will make a positive impact on Antigua and Barbuda’s economy and the university will contribute “around five percent of our GDP”.

Minister of Education Daryll Matthew believes that this “historic” occasion will deliver high quality education, provide great economic development and will make Antigua and Barbuda stand out as an academic centre of excellence.
