Education is light and what the world needs is more light – Will Hayes (1931)
In the words of mystic Will Hayes (1931), “The only certain way to World Brotherhood [a concept implying equality, freedom and peace for all of humanity] is through the gateway of knowledge. Education is the secret of progress. Education is light and what the world needs is more light.” With due acknowledgement to Will Hayes’ vision, CIU is proud to adopt the motto “Education is Light.” For more information see the Calamus Project page.
Calamus International University is a non-traditional institution whose mission is to provide independent educational opportunities, allowing students anywhere in the world to work towards and be awarded earned degrees by flexible routes. CIU recognises that the higher educational goals and needs of adults, and especially accomplished professionals, differ from those of high-school leavers, and that the mature student is usually a self-directed or autonomous learner who is well-motivated, has a relevant background, possesses considerable knowledge and is able to contribute significantly to the design of his or her own studies.
Calamus International University encourages the study and investigation of mainstream and unconventional subjects in accordance within a holistic ambience. Interdisciplinary study and research by both students and faculty within a holistic paradigm is also encouraged. Diversification of mentor responsibilities over different fields allows the University to offer a broad range of interdisciplinary and independent studies and allows students to propose their own majors, subject to approval and availability of suitable mentors.
Course units are mostly based upon textbooks by experts renowned in their fields, and many units will introduce students to new perspectives from exciting and innovative thinkers.
Routes to a degree concentrate upon distance learning but may include tuition at or with centres, colleges, mentors or tutors approved by the University, and independent study. Appropriate allowance may be given for academic credit for prior education and relevant experience.
CIU is not under ownership of any religious or metaphysical organisation and is non-denominational. Students from any faith or creed or none are welcome.
Location and Registration
Calamus International University is international in scope and does not restrict itself to the educational conventions of any one country. Its strength is in the diverse knowledge and experience of its international faculty, linked by electronic and conventional communication. Administration is co-ordinated partly from the United Kingdom and partly from overseas, and tutors may be located in any country where adjunct faculty reside. CIU is a non-campus university, a class of institution that is part of the 21st-century, rapidly-changing world of alternative private education. These institutions have also been called "campus-free" or "universities without walls."
Calamus International University was founded in the British West Indies in 2001
The University’s corporate location in the British West Indies was established in 2001 through becoming licensed as Calamus International University Ltd, enabling the institution to accept students from all continents. The University was issued a certificate of registration from the government of the Turks and Caicos Islands, British West Indies. Later developments saw CIU become registered in the Pacific, and Calamus International University ceased its corporate presence in the Turks and Caicos at the end of December, 2007.
