Galen University, established in Belize in May 2003, has gained recognition as one of the premier educational institutions in the country, offering programs at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level in business, arts and sciences, and education. If there is one drawback, it is that Galen is located in the Cayo district, which is inconvenient to prospective students from the north. But not anymore! Today we spoke to Galens Northern Regional Coordinator Joel Cervantes, who told us that Galen spread its wings to Corozal one year ago.

“We have actually been offering the Business Administration Bachelors Degree in Corozal . We are hosting it at the conference room at the Corozal Junior College, we have been there one year now which presently today actually the students starts there third semester into their degree . It takes approximately two years and one semester to be exact so it less than two and half years.”

And now the institution is reaching out to students in Orange Walk.

According to Cervantes the response has been extremely positive.

“It was very good, we presently have a cohort of twenty-seven students, so the response was great but that also includes seven students from Orange Walk Town which are already one year ahead. And in Orange Walk town we have gotten a pretty good response actually for a cohort.”

To those who would like to take advantage of the opportunity but are a little hesitant, Cervantes had this message.

“I would like to tell them that Galen is where they can actually discover their potential and for you working people who have the opportunity consider it an investment, it is an investment that will be worthwhile for the rest of your lives. The banks and the Credit Unions and D.F.C don’t look at it as a loan but as an investment take advantage of it. Education Is the way to go there is no better thing to do than nurturing your education.”

Interested persons can call Cervantes at 670-1104 or inquire at the Galen main office, but time is of the essence since the kickoff date is set for the end of May.
