SWOT Analysis: Antigua State College The Antigua State College was established in the year 1977 and is one of the most notable tertiary level institutions on the island. The college is a public institution that operates independently and so all funds for maintenance are covered by the college on its own. The school currently operates and houses 3 departments, as well as UWI Open Campus, at its main campus in Golden Grove. A new campus has recently been introduced in Five Islands to house 4 of the college’s 6 departments. Each department has its own set of staff and administration and is mostly independent in nature. A SWOT Analysis is performed to identify the strengths and weaknesses within the organizations internal structure, as well as the opportunities and threats that affect the institution externally. STRENGTHS Lowest Tuition Cost: The Antigua State College provides tertiary level education at a very affordable price to students. The college has the lowest tuition cost on island of all institutions that offer tertiary level institutions for the specified length of study. Each department has a different tuition as there are different numbers of years to be spent at each department.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
