In a significant development, Swansea University has joined forces with Uniciti International Education Hub (UIEH) in Mauritius to provide a top-notch BSc Nursing (Top-up) programme for nurses in the region.

The one-year course is designed for diploma-qualified registered nurses seeking to enhance their skills and knowledge in the field.

The programme, set to commence in September, will be delivered through a hybrid format, combining in-person sessions at UIEH’s campus in Pierrefonds, Mauritius, with online courses taught by a team of qualified instructors from Swansea University.

The curriculum includes modules such as health promotion and public health, evidence-based practice, nursing research, and an introduction to clinical leadership.

According to Professor Keith Lloyd, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Science at Swansea University, “We are delighted to collaborate with UIEH and share our academic excellence in nursing to upskill the nurses of Mauritius.

Our programme has been designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to meet the regional demand for well-qualified, competent, and confident nurses.”

UIEH Managing Director Dhanjay Jhurry emphasized the significance of the partnership, stating that it underscores the organization’s commitment to academic excellence.

“This collaboration aims to meet local and regional demand for healthcare professionals while offering diploma-holding nurses an opportunity to pursue a bachelor’s degree,” he added.

The strategic partnership between UIEH and Swansea University is part of a broader initiative to establish a regional centre of excellence in healthcare training.

This development is expected to benefit not only nurses in Mauritius but also the wider region.

Swansea University boasts an impressive reputation globally, ranking among the top 300 universities in the world (QS World University Ranking 2025).

It is also ranked 2nd in the UK for Health Professions (The Guardian University Guide 2024) and Top 10 in the UK for Nursing (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024).
