UPSAT

Tunisia

UPSAT, a private Health Sciences Faculty, was founded in 2001. It is a pioneer in paramedical university teaching in Tunisia.

UPSAT is the first private paramedical higher teaching institution to be recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and the Ministry of Health.

As an elite faculty, UPSAT is recognized for the excellence of its academic training and the high qualification level of its graduates.
Thanks to its reputation, the quality training it provides guarantees the employability of its graduates in Tunisia and abroad.

By joining “Honoris United Universities”, the first pan-African network of private universities, UPSAT has taken on an international dimension that provides it with the means to maintain its focus on excellence.

The Honoris network’s contribution is reflected in the upgrading of teaching tools and techniques, the diversification of the content of training courses and the incorporation of new entrepreneurial, digital and communication skills.

All this with the aim of being in harmony with international standards and preparing our graduates for the requirements of both the domestic and international labor markets.

UPSAT is succeeding in its mission through selected and limited groups of students, a rich teaching combining hospital practice and practical work with lectures, a high level teaching staff, a Medical Simulation Center unique in Africa.

This Center is equipped with high-fidelity training mannequins and a team of highly qualified trainers.

Through this Center, UPSAT offers these students the opportunity to consolidate their training both on the procedural level and the skills and know-how level.

UPSAT provides training at three academic institutions located in the heart of Tunisia’s three main coastal cities: Tunis, Sousse and Sfax.

All three faculties are accredited by the relevant ministries and all are specialized in the field of paramedical sciences and techniques.

Bathed by the Mediterranean, each of these cities represents by its history and past a melting pot of civilizations and a crossbreeding of cultures and religions in a young, tolerant and open Tunisia where synagogues, cathedrals and mosques coexist with one another.
