The UK has a number of truly world class educational brands, many of them with a long tradition behind them. I believe that UK universities and colleges are the best in the world and we now have over 20 universities offering courses in Mauritius. The UK is also famous for its awarding organisations of which 12 are now operating in Mauritius. British institutions, such as its accountancy bodies, command worldwide respect for their roles in setting standards of entry to the professions and for professional development. Qualifications offered by UK professional bodies are seen as benchmark standards around the world. The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants both operate successfully in Mauritius. In fact Mauritius has more ACCA qualified people per head than anywhere else in the world.
Please take a look at the different UK degrees courses and professional qualifications now available in Mauritius. The qualification you will receive is exactly the same as you were studying in the UK. Some courses offer the opportunity to spend some of your time in the UK – I’d encourage you to take advantage if you can. If you can’t find the course you want, please let us know and we can feed this back to the relevant institutions.
