Mauritius at a Glance
Mauritius is an island of beauty and charm. It was named after the Dutch Prince Maurice Van Nassau. After been colonized by both the French and English , Mauritius gained its independence in 1968 and still forms part of the British Commonwealth and follows the Westminster pattern of Government. English is the official language and French also commonly used.

What makes the beauty of Mauritius is the melting pot of cultures. Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism co-exist peacefully. Thus our international students do feel it very easy to integrate in the cosmopolitan community. Several religious festivals are celebrated on Mauritius, exemplifying just how multicultural the island really is. The country’s streets come alive with parades celebrating the Chinese Spring Festival, the processions of the Tamil Cavadee, the Hindu pilgrimage to the Grand Bassin (sacred lake), the Catholic pilgrimage to the tomb of the Blessed Jacques Désiré Laval in Port Louis, and the annual Muslim re-enactment of Abraham’s sacrifice of his son.

In just 4 decades, Mauritius has grown from an isolated mono-crop dependent country into a services-led economy enjoying sustained growth. The Mauritian economy rests on five pillars, namely sugar, tourism, textile, financial services and ICT. The country ranks 24th in the World Bank Doing Business. Mauritius has attracted surging amounts of Foreign Direct Investment. The country is also enjoying a growing reputation as one of the world’s top 25 outsourcing destinations.

Mauritius is the ideal place for international students in terms of curriculum and extra curriculum activities.
