What Is VUSSC?

The Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC) is a robust network of small states committed to bridge the digital divide including the collaborative development and sharing of free content resources to promote learning for sustainable development.


Open Educational Resources (OER) supports a growing sense of community that overcomes cultural, physical and economic barriers. The use of OER has been a process of giving and passing on skills and knowledge for development through education. VUSSC presents its model of OER development through collaboration.


The Transnational Qualifications Framework (TQF) is a reference system which link national qualifications systems and frameworks in different small states together. It functions as a translation device making qualifications more readable, which in turn, will help learners and workers that move between countries or change jobs.
