WE ARE UNIQUE
 At CREDI, we empower students to think critically and to express their perspectives with confidence in and outside of the classroom to hopefully bring about change in their workplace and in their communities.
 We believe that every human being should be treated with dignity and respect. Despite the Catholic foundation, we open our doors to students of all religions and backgrounds.
 CREDI fosters an intimate environment, one of camaraderie and teamwork. Any CREDI student will tell you that there is a sense of family and community in the classroom.
 We believe in a holistic approach to development of our students and therefore each of our students participate in Original Pain Therapy (OPT). OPT allows participants to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Beyond this programme, all students have access to CREDI’s team of in-house Clinical Therapists for support and guidance through any difficult moments in their lives.
YOUR FUTURE
The University's degree programmes are designed with input from industry to make sure you gain the skills needed to progress in your selected area of specialisation. Employers know that a graduate from CREDI will be of an extremely high standard, increasing your career prospects at the end of your degree.

SOPHISTICATED PRACTICUM
The Practicum provides opportunities for the student to engage in structured activities that show that the gap between theory and practice is being effectively bridged. It affords the student the opportunity to crystallize theory into the splendid reality of fruitful action.

Our Cooperating Teachers are advocates for their students and provide personalized mentoring to each student that allows the student to achieve potential personal and professional development.
Whether you are currently employed in an appropriate environment or not, CREDI will assist you with securing a space within a suitable establishment to practice and develop your skills.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
CREDI believes in offering its students a welcoming and cooperative learning environment with personalized attention from our faculty and staff. This personalized attention is the reason many students give for choosing to attend CREDI. Faculty are dedicated to nurturing the whole person, thus preparing students for success in their careers and as individuals. The Catholic ethos is an essential, binding element that we strive for within the CREDI community, which embraces members of other faith groups as well.
SPIRITUAL LIFE
As a department of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Port of Spain, CREDI is determined to make available to all staff a variety of experiences from the rich tradition of Catholic spiritual life and therefore, CREDI has spirituality at the heart of all its operations and programmes.
