In Seychelles, education is compulsory up to the age of 16 years and free from pre-school through to secondary school up until the age of 18 years. There are currently 39 state schools, 9 post-secondary schools, 4 private schools and 1 university; University of Seychelles. The government ensures access to quality education to the population. Students who complete their secondary education can attend further training in their field of choice in teacher education, business, humanities and science, and hotels/tourism.
A growing economy with greater investment opportunities will require a significant increase in the country’s skills capacity, allowing for locals to invest or be employed in more lucrative/higher paid specialized services. This will require educational institutions and special skills training centres to support the demand.
Similarly our large Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) makes Seychelles ideal for the opening of Ecological and Maritime based universities and research centres.
