Welcome to the Faculty of Agriculture

The Faculty of Agriculture, originally founded as the School of Agriculture in 1914, plays a vital role in providing trained human resources for the public and private sectors in Mauritius as well as in the region for the development of agriculture and related fields. It is a continuing challenge to produce high calibre graduates to meet the changing needs of the agricultural sector for this millennium. The standard and quality of our degrees are maintained to an internationally accepted level by a system of moderation by external examiners from the University of Reading, United Kingdom and elsewhere.
