1973 to date

The Mauirtius Institute of education was created in 1973, as an institution devoted to Teacher education, Curriculum Development and Research. Mauritius had obtained independence in 1968 and there was a pressing need to professionalise the education sector, effect change in the curriculum and to engage in research in education. Today, MIE has evolved as an institution of repute, working closely with the Ministry of Education and Human Resources to drive a number of educational projects and to be at the forefront of curriculum change and innovation in the pre-primary, primary and secondary sectors of education in the Republic of Mauritius.

In line with its strategic objectives, MIE offers certificate, diploma, undergraduate and post graduate and doctoral programmes in Education. The MIE dispenses courses, solely and jointly with the University of Mauritius, University of Technology of Mauritius, and supports other institutions, including the Mauritius College of the Air and Mauritius Examinations Syndicate, through its professional expertise and knowhow.

MIE also engages in major refors in Education at national level through its close association with the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, advising the Ministry and helping the latter implement its major educational policies.
