"We did't know much about Mauritius before coming here, but when we searched for it on the Internet, it appeared to be an attractive option. It felt like it would be a new adventure, a new place to discover. After coming here, it usually feels like a place most of us could only dream to study at. The atmosphere in Mauritius is very peaceful. There are many wonderful places that we enjoy going to during our leisure time, be it for hiking, mountaineering or relaxing at the beach. And to top it all, we actually get to acquire equivalent qualifications as in the UK, but at a much lower cost!"
Nieka Gordon (South Africa)

“I've always known about Mauritius being a tourism destination. So, when the opportunity to study in Mauritius presented itself, it was simply incredible. besides the fact that is is only a four-hour flight from South-Africa to Mauritius, the tropical climate and fascinating Mauritian culture are great reasons to consider studying here. Mixing with local students was no big deal - such is the friendliness on Mauritians!”
