The Mauritius Institute of Education - MIE

Founded in 1973, the MIE was initially charged with responsibilities in the field of teacher education, educational research and curriculum development. The role of the MIE as a curriculum development centre has since 1993 been phased out such that it is at present predominantly involved in teacher training and educational research.
There are currently 5 Schools at the MIE, namely Applied Sciences, Education, Science and Mathematics, Arts and Humanities and Distance Education. The programmes have over the years slowly increased in diversity and levels. To-date, it has offered training to school teachers in programmes ranging from certificate, diploma and the PGCE. It also offers B.Ed as well as Masters programmes in Education, in collaboration with the UoM and the University of Brighton, UK respectively.
