A great place to study!
Galen is justifiably proud of its tradition as an innovative, quality-oriented institution serving the needs of Belize and Central America through education, scholarship and service to the community. We take great pride of being a community-oriented institution focused on the principles of sustainable development. Galen is a signatory institution to the Talloires Declaration and a member of the Association of University Leaders for a Sustainable Future.
Galen University offers innovative educational programs at the undergraduate and postgraduate level in business, arts and sciences, education and technology. Galen University’s mission is to provide excellent educational programs that allow students to achieve their dreams and goals. To support this mission, Galen has established educational partnership agreements with institutions that share a commitment to global education.
Galen University in Belize is a wonderful place to pursue an undergraduate or a postgraduate degree programme, or spend a term as a study-abroad student. Galen welcomes international students who benefit from the rich history and culture of Belize, which reflects its unique situation as a Central American country, a part of the network of Caribbean countries and a member of the Commonwealth. 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.
As Central America’s only English speaking country, Belize offers students the chance to live, as well as study, in the English language. 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.

Galen University was founded in September 2003 as Belize’s only privately administered tertiary institution. With an initial intake of only 14 students, Galen’s first program offerings were Bachelor Degrees in Business Administration, Agriculture and Tourism Management. Programs have now expanded to twelve undergraduate degrees and four graduate degrees, with traditional "on-campus" programs and online “off-campus” programs.
As an independent university chartered by the Government of Belize, Galen has, in 11 years, grown its student population to over 550. The University offers its own degrees, as well as an accredited U.S. degree in Mater’s of Education from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Inaddition, we recently started recruitng for UNIC programs, some as a dual-degree and others soley as UNIC degrees.
