Mauritius is a vibrant, multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, approximately 855 km off the east coast of Madagascar. The island boasts 330 km of coastline, which is almost entirely surrounded by one of the largest unbroken coral reefs in the world. Mauritius has a population of approximately 1.3 million people. The largest city, Port Louis, is its capital.
Mauritius has a rich heritage and diverse culture, making it a popular place to live, study and visit. Music, theatre, a wide mix of cuisines, outdoor activities and water sports are popular highlights for students and residents alike.
In the summer months, from November to April, the temperature varies from 20°C to 28°C inland, and from 25°C to 36°C on the coast. English is the official language of the island, although you are likely to hear French, Creole (a mélange of French and various African dialects) and Indian languages, the result of long history as an international hub of migration and trade.
Our campus is located in Vacoas, a garden town and one of the safest parts of the island, around 45 minutes drive from Port Louis.
