General Education Modules (GEMs) | Print |

Brief Overview

The General Education Module (GEM) is a module offered across the University of Mauritius in view of broadening the knowledge of the student on basic issues related to the economy, society, culture, education and so on.  There is no restriction regarding the GEM that a student can select. Normally, the student is encouraged to select GEM(s) unrelated to his/her field of study.

The student will have to select an appropriate number of GEM(s) depending on his/her ProgrammeStructure from a list of GEMs. A GEM bears 3-credit and can be delivered either in face-to-face or online mode. However, even if a GEM is available in the list of GEMs, it may not be on offer if there is no critical mass to run it.

A list of potential GEMs is available below. However, please note that the following list is tentative and is subject to approval:
