The Universal Study Centre (USC) is a school of academic and vocational studies. The school first opened in 1995, offering training in computer applications and foreign languages, such as English, French, Swahili, etc. In the year 2000, USC opened a nursery school. As time passed, the Centre introduced more courses. Now the Centre offers, among other courses, language courses, computer applications and technical courses, nursery and primary education, Secretarial Course, Tour Operator’s Course, and a Driving Course.
USC is currently operating on Unguja (the main island of Zanzibar) and Pemba island, also part of Zanzibar.
USC’s mission is to offer training using the best possible methods and approaches, to enhance learning and develop critical understanding of foreign languages among children and adults. More over, the Centre aims to prepare young children to become better men and women in the society and to establish ways to incorporate Zanzibari culture with changes and trends of modern science and technology. In fewer words, the Centre’s mission is to educate and rebuild the morality and good culture of the society and to fill the gap for those who need to enhance their vocational skills and foreign language abilities.
