The University of Seychelles has three main campuses, at Anse Royale, Ma Joie and Mont Fleuri respecively. The Anse Royale campus hosts most of the full-time degree programmes on offer. The Guy Morel Institute, based at the Ma Joie campus, is the ideal venue for in-service professional development and a well-known training centre for both private and public organisations. The Mont Fleuri campus is home to the India-Seychelles Centre for Excellence in Information and Communication Technology. The ICT Centre awards certificates and diplomas in the field of Computing and Information Technology.
UniSey offers a wide range of programmes and courses designed and delivered with employability in mind. Most of the degree programmes are awarded directly by the University of London. We want to ensure that our graduates are well-equipped for their professional lives, holding a qualification that not only meets stringent international standards but that also gives them a competitive edge on the employment market.
At UniSey, students are taught by well-qualified and highly accomplished academics from Seychelles and from overseas universities. Students will benefit from the professional skills, extensive international experience and latest research findings of their lecturers. Research, which is now an important aspect of the university, is fast evolving. Key areas of research currently being developed include: the Blue Economy, Indian Ocean languages and cultures, environmental science, and education in small island states.
The University of Seychelles libraries are located at the Anse Royale and Ma Joie campuses. All registered UniSey students and staff, as well as external users, can make use of the library services, which include both electronic and non-electronic access to education materials.

The core technical services on offer include application management, email, internet access, website support, software and license management. The University of Seychelles is also a Microsoft IT Academy Centre. The Microsoft IT Academy programme is a membership programme that enables academic institutions to deliver training on Microsoft IT professional, developer, and Office technologies to their students, as well as offer resources on the latest Microsoft technologies to their educators.
Catering services are available on all campuses. At Anse Royale, the main cafeteria is currently being refurbished and a new menu will be available to meet student and staff needs.

Name: Prema Micock
Country of Origin: Seychelles
Course Title: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
The University of Seychelles (UniSey) is proud to announce that Prema Micock, its Registration and Admission Officer, has successfully completed her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with First Class Honours. We met with Ms Prema and she agreed to share her experience as a full time student and employee of UniSey.
Describe your experience as a student of the University of Seychelles.
As a student at the University of Seychelles, I had the opportunity to encounter and interact with different people from different backgrounds and personalities. This has helped me to develop the ability to see things from different perspectives, thereby providing me with a unique and rewarding experience.
What do you think are the benefits of studying locally?
My family members played an important role by motivating and encouraging me every day. Having them close to me all the time is one of the greatest benefits of studying locally. To be in your own country where everyone understands you makes it easier because you can communicate easily and get the required support to complete your studies successfully.
What challenges did you face during your studies on both the academic and professional level?
As a full time employee and a full time student, I had to balance my work life, student life and social life altogether. I had to get into the trend of switching from being an employee to a student or vice versa and sometimes wearing both hats at the same time. The challenges I faced academically were that I found some modules quite challenging. These required a lot of research, reading and attending lectures for better understanding, and I had many difficulties to perform all three tasks at times. I frequently procrastinated, especially when I was very stressed by work and lectures. On a professional level, the challenges were that I was not as productive as I wanted. I would occasionally find myself a bit behind schedule due to lectures. Working in a very busy department requires multitasking and frequently I had to delegate some of my incomplete workloads to my colleague. In addition, whenever I am mentally strained, I sometimes unintentionally forget about a particular task, which can delay my work a lot.
How have your studies helped you in your career development in terms of skills and knowledge acquired?
Different modules have served different purposes. I was able to grasp the importance of individuals within the organisation as one of the most important assets towards the success of any company. This has helped me to be more appreciative towards each individual with their different abilities. Acknowledging the importance of teamwork as a major factor towards striving for organisational success is also a key element. My studies have equally provided me with a range of valuable skills which I could use to facilitate my work and to be more productive through critical thinking.
What does the first class honour achievement represent for you?
It represents the determination, effort, hard work and sacrifices that paid off in the end.
Who do you wish to acknowledge and dedicate this achievement to?
Firstly, it will be my family and friends, as well as my boyfriend and his family. They are the most important people in my life and they were behind me since the beginning. They have supported and motivated me, giving words of encouragement for not giving up in times of discouragement. Secondly, I am very appreciative towards my colleagues and other staff of the University of Seychelles for their continuous support and understanding as well as for providing me with such opportunity to pursue my studies. Most of all, my deepest gratitude goes to my colleague Monica Francoise, for she has been an incredible friend and colleague during all these years. In addition, I am grateful towards my classmates and lecturers who provided me with the required guidance and continuous support. But above all, my acknowledgement and dedication for my achievement go to our Father in heaven, Lord Jesus, the Holy Spirit, as well as all the saints. I believe prayer is the most powerful weapon in the world and this achievement is proof that my prayers have been answered.
