CAMPUS PROFILE

pos@sbcs.edu.tt

SBCS’ second campus on the outskirts of Port of Spain opened its doors for business on May 5th, 2003, providing an ideally located training centre for companies and individuals in the capital city and its environs.

The Port of Spain campus includes four computer labs fully outfitted with state of the art equipment and four training rooms. This campus originally started out at 46-50 Picton Street, offering only short courses in the area of Business and I.T. as well as Corporate Training Courses.

Since then the campus has expanded its operations and has developed into the Centre for Media Studies offering the BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Media since 2004. The expansion involved the acquisition of 31 Picton Street which is located directly opposite the main building, and the campus is equipped with complete sound and television studios. Additionally we have a secured car park for students located at 27 Warner Street.

In January 2010 the launch of the Final Year BA (Hons) Media and Communications in collaboration with the University of Greenwich commenced. Students are able to acquire a BA Honours Degree via the BTEC HND CMP pathway.

In 2011, the BTEC HND in Media was replaced by the BTEC HND in Creative Media Production (CMP) to ensure the programme remains industry relevant.

The Port of Spain campus also provides the following programmes and courses:
