The recent announcement by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports that it would discontinue the fee subsidy currently enjoyed by all students at the University of Belize (UB) will not come into effect till January 2013 and will only affect students entering from that point onward. The Government has advised that it will continue the fee subsidy for all students enrolled prior to January 2013.

In August 2006, the University of Belize increased its General Semester Fees. However, a policy decision was taken by the Government of Belize that they would pay the increase for all students for a period of six months. This subsidy was continued by the Government for six years and it also increased its annual subvention to the University from $8 to $10 Million.

The University of Belize remains steadfast in its commitment to provide academic excellence in education, research and service for national development.  In the face of the changed economic circumstances in Belize and the wider world the University is determined to work with students, faculty and staff to ensure that access to quality tertiary education for Belizeans remains a central part of its mission.
