The University of London selects partners who are practicing excellence in education and works towards establishing centres for its programmes, one of which will be the UniSey.

The formal agreement was signed in London between the vice-chancellor of UniSey, Dr Rolph Payet, and the vice-chancellor of the University of London, Professor Geoffrey Crossick in the presence of President Michel, who is the chancellor of UniSey.
The President noted that the offer for UniSey to become a Recognised Centre of the University of London is evidence of the confidence in the partnership between the two universities as well of the high level of performance of UniSey and the hard work of the faculty and staff.

“I have always believed in education because education is the future, our youth are the future.  Since our inception, we have worked hard to provide an environment that will help young people acquire skills and knowledge, allowing them to move forward in a knowledge-based society. The University of London is an institution which has been given phenomenal support over the years and we are delighted to be associated with it. I hope this relationship will continue to shine in the centre of the Indian Ocean – together we can provide Seychellois people with access to an education of the highest quality,” said President Michel.

During his visit to the University of London International Programmes, the President also held talks with Professor Crossick and other university officials on the possibilities of introducing new degree programmes in Seychelles.
Professor Crossick said that the University of London is very pleased to be supporting the UniSey, which “aspires to become an educational hub in the region”.

“Our relationship with the University of Seychelles follows a long tradition of establishing Commonwealth Universities, such as University College of Ibadan in Nigeria and the University of Nairobi, as well as University of Hong Kong and the National University of Singapore. Not only has the University of London been a key player within the Commonwealth, but also at home in the United Kingdom with universities such as Exeter and Nottingham, both of whom began by teaching our awards,” said Prof. Crossick.
