Dr Indra Persaud

Senior Lecturer / Head of Department
Department of Education

I hold a BA Honours in Geography and PGCE (University of Sussex, UK) and BEd in Education Management (University of Pretoria, South Africa).  In 2009 I completed a Master’s in Geography Education with Distinction (UCL Institute of Education, UK) and in 2017 I completed a PhD in Geography Education ((UCL Institute of Education, UK).

Prior to joining UniSey, my teaching experience was gained at schools in the UK (London), Tunisia and Seychelles.  I was Head of the Social Studies Department in the American Cooperative School of Tunis and was Head of the School of Foundation Studies at Seychelles Polytechnic.

At UniSey I have taught on the University of London BSc Geography and Environment degree programme and contributed to the development of UniSey’s own BSc Environmental Science degree. In 2017 I became the Head of the Education Department, managing our BEd Secondary and PGCE programmes. From 2018 I am also coordinating the Master’s in Educational Leadership programme, offered in partnership with the University of Mauritius.

Published chapters and articles include; ‘Seychelles Teacher Education’ (book chapter) Handbook of Teacher Education (forthcoming, co-authored with Dr S.
