Belizean culture draws from its heritage of Maya, Creole, European, Garifuna, Mestizo, East Indian, Chinese, North American and German Mennonite groups who have made Belize their home. Within a short drive from the University, students can study and enjoy inland rainforests, diverse wildlife, pristine rivers, and many ancient Mayan temples.

It also offers a culturally diverse population, low cost of living, a stable parliamentary democracy, and a rich history and environment. This exciting learning environment coupled with quality education will challenge and support you to do your best and ensure that you always excel, in learning and in life.

We look forward to welcome you to Galen and to Belize.
