Miss University Africa (MUA) is an annual international beauty pageant organized by Visions, Innovations and Concepts. The pageant was first held in 2010. Unlike Miss America and Miss Earth pageants, Miss University Africa contestants are not required to compete in swimsuits or bikinis.[1] Founded by businessman Taylor Nazzal, the competition has 54 contestants who represent 54 countries in Africa, and the winner of the pageant receives US$50,000 in endorsement deals, a new car and becomes a United Nations Students' Ambassador.

The current title holder is Lorriane Nadal of Mauritius who was crowned on 2 December 2017 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.[2]


The pageant allows the participation of female contestants between the ages of 18 and 26 who are active university students with no marriage experience or children.[3]
