WHY CHOOSE OU?
The Open University of Mauritius provides the flexibility, the qualifications and the world-class teaching learners are looking for. Everyone can earn a qualification while working; learners may also wish to work part-time and study part-time; and others, including, school-leavers can study full-time. With our top-leading blend of online and distance learning, supported by innovative study materials and videos, every student gets an exceptional learning experience in his/her own time, at home, work or wherever s/he chooses – reading, watching or listening to materials supplied, working out course activities and assignments with regular support from the Tutor who is always just an email away. Tutorials are also organised but they are mostly optional and give a chance to meet the tutors and fellow learners. The members of the staff of the Open University are always ready to provide any support, guidance and assistance learners need. We also offer many short courses that help to improve employability skills. Anyone can choose from a wide range of qualifications ranging from Short courses, BSc/BEd, MSc/MEd/MA/ MBA to DBA/PhD in various fields.
Every student who registers for a programme at OU is invited to an induction session where s/he is taught how to study through the Open Distance Learning mode. The students receive all the learning materials. Those enrolled for a degree programme may be eligible for a tablet with all the learning materials. Every student receives a factsheet with the contact details of the key persons at OU including the Programme Manager. All the students have their own login details to access the e-library and e-learning platform. Through the e-learning platform, the university comes to the doorsteps of the students. Local students can attend face-to-face tutorial sessions in our study centres. Students from overseas benefit from the same learning experience as local ones through the use of our virtual classrooms. All the learners have access to several hundred thousand titles in the e-library from any location.
