UMASU has come a long way since its setting up in the early seventies. Our quest for a better work environment has led us to work with successive managements of the University. Over the years UMASU has forged itself into an inescapable platform for negotiation with management and other authorities such as the Ministry of Tertiary Education, Research & Technology, the Tertiary Education Commission and the Pay Research Bureau. We would like to put on record here our sincere gratitude to the various teams who have served on the Executive Committee. Some of the presidents we wish to mention are Dass Vencatasamy, Said Goburdhun, Milan Meetarbhan, Len Seebaluck, Rajen Narsinghen, Mono Bunwaree and Dinesh Hureeram among others, who have graciously devoted their time in making UMASU the recognised body that it now is on campus. We are proud of their achievements.

By going online, our objective is to share with one and all, the various opportunities available to academics working at the University of Mauritius. These are the outcomes of several years of negotiations. We endeavour to continue the process to make UOM a prestigious institution which any professional would look forward to join for the purposes of knowledge sharing through teaching, research and consultancy activities.

UOM offers the following benefits, to the academic community:

  • Academic Staff Development Scheme
  • Research Funding Scheme
  • Conference/Workshop Attendance Scheme
  • Internet and Book Allowance Scheme
  • Laptop for academics
  • Additional remuneration for extra teaching, project supervision,
  • Programme coordination, marking of scripts, teaching large cohorts etc...
  • Remuneration for consultancy activities
  • Duty remission on the purchase of cars

You will find an overview on the above schemes on the website. Please contact us for further details. We wish you all a fruitful reading.
