Barbados, Bridgetown - The University of The West Indies at the Cave Hill Campus has reported that demand for placement of medical students at the higher education institution is high.

The Principal of the university, Sir Hiliary Beckles has said that the university has received over five hundred applications from all over the world for persons wishing to enroll in the Faculty of Medical Sciences.

This demand has set the university in the direction of of creating more dorms at the institution.

"Beginning this summer, we are going to be building new dormitories in the Lazaretto Area in Black Rock, St Michael," he said.

Professor Beckles had a word to say about the amenities fee which was instituted under his tenure. He mentioned that the fee which is asked of students attending the campus allows for about two million dollars to be given to the student body.

The Two million dollars has seen the installment of a playing field at the campus and now allowed for the building of a day care facility for students who are also parents.

Trivester commends this great man and pray God's blessings.
