The Mauritius education event will be held at the end of November just after the completion of the HSc examinations. This provides an opportunity to prospective students to gather information about study areas and take early informed decisions.
The Mauritius International Education Fair is amongst the largest education fairs in Mauritius. It is also one of the oldest education fairs in the country and has been attracting a number of Universities from across the world. The fair is strategically held as soon as the HSC examinations have concluded and students are looking out for options around the world. Our last event had participants from countries around the world including the UK, France, Switzerland, Canada, Malaysia, India, China, Hungary and Cyprus.
Reasons to Attend
The fair is marketed extensively and the number of participants has steadily increased every year. Last year, we have over 53 institutions that took part in the fair. The fair has been held annually since 2003. Mauritius is a country where a significant number of students go abroad to study each year. The fair provides an ideal platform for recruiters to meet and interact with interested students
Despite being one of Africa’s most developed countries, Mauritius still has only a few institutions where students can pursue higher education. As a result, most Mauritian students look as pursuing their educational dreams abroad. There are about 5000 Mauritian students who go abroad to study each year.
Mauritius is an island nation of 1.2 millions inhabitants in the Indian Ocean. Mauritius has a multicultural society in which the cultures blend and mix harmoniously. The population is made up of people of Indian, African, Chinese and French origin.
This International Education Fair in Mauritius is held at the Hennessy Park Hotel in the city of Ebene. Due to its excellent location and easy accessibility the hotel is able to attract many visitors for the fair.
The Mauritius exhibition is committed to forming value-centred future leaders through education that is entrepreneurial inspirit, ethical in focus, and global in orientation.
The fair is well advertised in the local media including press, radio and television. In addition posters and banners are put up all over the island. Personal visits are made by representatives to various schools and higher education establishments to promote the Fair.
The last fair was inaugurated by the Minister of Tertiary Education and the earlier one by the President of the Republic.

We were not disappointed at the fair in Mauritius
We decided to take paurt in the education exhibition in Port-Louise, last November. We were not disappointed, as this event confirmed us in our belief that we were dealing with an extremely well run and well organised student recruitment agency. As a result of this event, we had our first 2 students.
The fair in Mauritius helped me decide to study abroad
I had attended the fair that was organized by Campus Abroad last year at hotel Labourdonais at Port Louis. I had some great moments there viewing all the universities present. There were many universities from different countries, which widen my view to go and study abroad. But I had already in mind to study in Mauritius. I had a great time viewing the universities and took the opportunity to ask a few questions. That helped me to change my decision and I opted to study abroad. [Kunal Ghurbhurrun gained access to a UK university as a result]
Mauritius has been highly successful
The University of Glamorgan has attended the Mauritius recruitment fair every year since 2007. During this period, we have seen the number of institutions increase and most definitely the number of applicants and families who attend increase. This fair has been the University's main recruitment tool in Mauritius and it has been highly successful. It give us a high level of exposure which has resulted in a significant increase not only in applications but also actual enrolments. We have already confirmed our attendance at the next fair.
