Following ongoing recommendations by the Department of Health, UniSey has decided that it is now MANDATORY to wear a face mask when entering the Reception area and KONPA Office on all of our campuses.
Furthermore, in the instance that social distancing measures are difficult to maintain and should there be fifteen or more people present for any classes, events, meetings or training sessions held at the University of Seychelles, it is MANDATORY to wear a face mask.
All these measures will be effective from Monday 28th September 2020.
Thank you for your cooperation.
If community transmission can be mitigated or avoided altogether in the small population through extraordinary human-centred measures, the Seychelles may continue to report some of the lowest numbers of confirmed cases in the Indian Ocean.

We are going through this challenging moment together so we need to support each other.

We UniSey Management, feel you would have probably felt better being home with, or, around close family members during such a challenging moment. However, we also understand that it may be more convenient for you to stay over in Seychelles as we are not yet severely affected by the Corona virus. We trust that you have had the chance to contact home and your family and friends over there are safe. We hope all will continue to be well for them. Please keep listening to advice from the local Health Authority and refer to our website for all relevant updates. The Student Support Services may be contacted via mail on Melina.Josephine@unisey.ac.sc should you wish to have someone to talk to about personal issues or any other matter related to your stay or studies here.
Please note that Mock Examinations scheduled for the period of March/April 2020 are not cancelled but the mode of examinations has changed. It will be computer-based, that is:
