IMPORTANT: WEBMASTER ANNOUNCEMENTS June 2016:

Calamus International University is undergoing reorganisation.

The UK affiliate college, Calamus Extension College Ltd., is no longer dealing with student liaison and enrolments for CIU and all administration previously handled by the Extension College is being transferred to UK College of Holistic Training (see www.ukcht.uk)  The Calamus Extension College contact details will remain in operation for at least a further 12 months so that any communications can be redirected and handled.

UKCHT will shortly have a new updated website.  This Calamus website will shortly be taken down and replaced by an interim site while a new site is being constructed. In the meantime certain sections of this website may not be available.

Some distance learning courses have closed during recent years including Classical Music. Further closures are likely.

Current CIU students will be able to finish their courses and are being advised accordingly.

Enrolments for new students are only being accepted for programmes that can be completed by end of July 2017. Students enrolling for any available places will need to have appropriate credit to transfer into Calamus (for example, ABD students) or will need to choose programmes that can be completed within this timeframe. Prospective candidates are welcome to contact info@unicalamus.org for advice.

ABD completion - we have a special page for people wanting to complete a PhD by transferring credit
and writing up a dissertation, or applicants with unconventional education who aspire to a doctorate. Click here for details.

 

 

Calamus International University - an overseas distance learning university founded in 2001 in British West Indies, and since 2007 registered in the Republic of Vanuatu

Calamus International University logo

Calamus International University is a private, campus-free distance university that was founded in 2001 in the British West Indies. CIU was first established in the Turks and Caicos Islands but in recent years has been registered in the Republic of Vanuatu.  CIU offers Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees in various fields and all CIU distance learning programmes are co-ordinated via Calamus Extension College Ltd., London, which handles admissions formalities.

Adjunct faculty of CIU are based in various countries and are available to students via email. Most courses use carefully selected textbooks and student assignments may be submitted by email. Students can participate in CIU study from almost any location without attendance requirements. The typical programme duration is 18 to 24 months. Bachelor's applicants are normally required to have at least 50% prior credit from previous education, experience and/or professional qualifications, though advice will be given to those lacking this requirement.

The original mission of Calamus International University was to provide affordable and flexible distance learning degrees for professionals such as counsellors, psychotherapists and complementary therapists and for students of holistic, metaphysical and spiritual fields, similar to programmes being offered by certain American distance universities, but with more flexibility and choice of course content. The scope of CIU education has expanded to offer programmes in a wider range of disciplines, especially for research leading to PhD. In operation since 2001, CIU continues to provide a unique range of programmes appealing to independent-minded students in all continents.

CIU degrees are not government-accredited and are not UK, EU or US degrees. They are not intended to be equivalent to UK degrees. CIU is fully accredited by the International Association of Distance Learning. Please see the status page for more information on status and suitability of the CIU awards.
