The University of Mauritius (UoM) was founded in 1965 and is the premier University of the island. Since 2017, the UoM has embarked on a modernization program, positioning itself as a research-engaged and entrepreneurial
institution. The new vision centered on innovation empowers the UoM to play an active role in building the human, intellectual, business and social capital the country needs. To achieve this vision, UoM is not only actively developing the tripartite relationship (UoMPublic Sector-Private Sector) but is also engaging closely with the Community for the economic and social progress of the country.
Since August 2019, the UoM has adopted the Learner Centered Credit System (LCCS) which will further enhance independent learning and promote outcome-based programmes to the benefit of the student population.
The UoM is collaborating with overseas institutions namely the University of Arizona, USA and CY Cergy Paris Université, France to offer dual degree programs. The UoM is also championing the SDGs and the development
of an eco and smart campus. Recently, the creation of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS) and the re-engineering of the Faculties of Science and Agriculture into a Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Technology
are landmarks in the progress of the UoM.
