Curaçao is a hot-spot for Transnational Education in the Caribbean. It is the base of several TNE institutions and facilities offering a wide range of programs to students from Europe, the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. The government of Curaçao supports the development of the Transnational Education on the island. It has adopted the UNESCO guidelines for quality provision in cross-border higher education and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and information between the institutions and relevant economic sectors.

A large number of Transnational Education institutions and knowledge organisations are located in the area between the airport and the centre of the capital city Willemstad. This clustering of knowledge-intensive and creative companies and organizations facilitates the exchange of information and ideas. This website provides students with an overview of institutions established in Curaçao and the programs and diplomas they offer and the accreditation they hold.
