    Question about semester breaks

    Advertisements



    Someone told me that AUA semester breaks are shorter than other Caribbean schools, that the break that just ended was only a week rather than 2 weeks. Is this true?

    Actually you get charged for that now. 500 bucks the first day you're late and like 250 for each day after. The breaks ranged anywhere from about 8 days to 2 weeks (around christmas the breaks are longer).

    Only 2 weeks at Christmas? Wonder why so short.

    Well, one reason that comes to mind is the fact that you're compressing basic science which is normally done in 2 years into 16 months. So every day of instruction time is important. But keep in mind that aua is going to a 2 year program (like us schools) "in the near future". The exact date that this will occur hasn't been released yet.
