Mauritius is an ancient French colony with a population of 1.2 million, and french influence is evident on the island, both in local gastronomy, architecture and street names that sound both tropical and French. Over the years, many writers, painters and other artists have visited the island and have been inspired by the beautiful nature and laid-back atmosphere. Mauritius' capital, Port Louis, is known for its French colonial-style architecture, its waterfront with both shopping and restaurants, and its large and colorful market.

What the students say

"Going on exchange has been the biggest highlight of my degree. Not only do you experience university in another country, you open yourself up to new challenges, new people and new cultures. It also builds on characteristics that employers love such as cultural awareness, leadership and confidence" - Lauren S.
