WHAT IS PUED? The Pre University Education Program is created to assist students with their smooth transition into the University of Belize when their prerequisites have not been met upon application for their individual programs. The PUED program also falls under the care of the ODL Unit, so when you here these two acronyms, do not be confused. It is all under the same umbrella!

There are presently 6 Courses offered through the PUED program 1. Pre College English I and II 2. Developmental Math 3. Study Skills 4. Basic Computer Skills 5. Developmental Biology 6. Developmental Chemistry English and Math Placement Exams are also offered through ODL.
