The University began teaching in 1948 as a University College affiliated with the University of London, and became an independent University in 1962. In 1963, Colleges of Arts and Sciences were set up at Cave Hill and St. Augustine. The former represented the institution of the third campus, while the latter was an extension of the facilities provided at St. Augustine, where the Faculties of Agriculture and Engineering were already established. The Faculty of Law was established in 1970. The University of the West Indies is now a dual mode institution offering teaching by distance education as well as face-to-face.
