Our Strategic Partner
A strategic Partnership with Limoges University, a partnership agreement was signed on the 12th of February, 2013 in Limoges on the creation of a francophone University « l’Université des Mascareignes » (UdM) in Mauritius between the President of the Université de Limoges and the then Minister of Tertiary Education, Science, Research and Technology of the Republic of Mauritius, Dr. Rajesh Jeetah. Since then, the Université de Limoges and the Université des Mascareignes have had close institutional, pedagogical and scientific collaborations. The bulk of the degrees awarded at the Université des Mascareignes are dual degrees with the Université de Limoges. The Université de Limoges welcomes every year students from the Université des Mascareignes, either as part of their internships or studies funded by UdM / French Embassy scholarships, or the European Erasmus funds. Lecturers from the University of Limoges regularly deliver certain programmes at the Université des Mascareignes, mainly in Master’s programmes or as co-supervisors for theses. Many research projects are conducted between researchers from these two universities, whether as part of Hubert Curien programs, or funded by the MRC, TEC, etc.
