Middlesex University is a large London university with a long and proud history as a provider of high quality education - our history in higher education dates from 1878. Middlesex Polytechnic was formed in 1973 and became a university by Royal Assent in 1992.
Middlesex University is now a world leader in providing a British higher education from campuses around the world. In recent years, the University has expanded from its foundations as a leading provider in London to become a major presence in key regions of the world. Our international status was reinforced when we opened our second overseas campus, in Mauritius in 2010. Middlesex offers its students the unrivalled opportunity to gain a British degree whilst being based at our new campus in Mauritius.
Middlesex University Mauritius Branch Campus is an integral part of Middlesex University. It is subject to the same rigorous quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex University in London the highest possible endorsement from UK's Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. The degree programmes offered at Middlesex University Mauritius Branch Campus are recognised the world over since they are validated and monitored to exactly the same standards as those offered at Middlesex's London campus. These stringent standards apply to both Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees. The academics that teach at Middlesex University Mauritius Branch Campus have the same impressive qualifications as those who teach at our London campuses, and many have received their own academic awards at British universities. Our staff, in addition to being well qualified, are all industry practitioners.
All programmes offered in Mauritius are accredited by the Tertiary Education Council.
We chose Mauritius because we knew there are lots of students like you, who rightly value the high standards of British higher education and wish to have their programmes validated within the British system of higher education, at an affordable cost and a considerable saving. The total annual cost of studying in Mauritius is less than half of that required to study for the same degree in the UK. Please refer specific programme section for more details.
Your studies in Mauritius can easily be combined with a year or more at our campuses in London, Malta and/ or Dubai. So for your Undergraduate degree, you could study the first and second years in Mauritius and then opt to transfer to our London campus to complete your final year and earn your degree. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, to combine study in Mauritius with any of the two other exciting world destinations, could result in significant amounts of saving on cost of tuition and living. Additionally, this experience will give you the opportunity to explore new cultures and make overseas contacts whilst still benefiting from the same high quality of teaching you would receive on our London campus – it will also look impressive on your CV.
Commenting on the opening of our campus, in 2010, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, the then President of the Republic of Mauritius said: "The world-recognised degree programmes run by the University will bring added value to the fast-developing Mauritian education system. Education is high on the agenda of the Mauritian Government: our vision is to develop Mauritius into a knowledge hub for the region. With an internationally-recognised partner like Middlesex University present to deliver high quality courses, we believe we can offer the perfect study destination."
A rapidly evolving knowledge hub in the African region, Mauritius is also a stable democracy with regular free elections. This peaceful and beautiful island nation has among the highest per capita incomes and Human Development Indexes for the region. Vacoas, where the custom-designed educational complex is located, is one of the safest and most prestigious parts of the island. In the campus, spacious, air-conditioned classrooms have been designed to accommodate lectures and seminar groups of different sizes. Set against a scenic Mauritian backdrop, could there be a more inspiring space for learning? Our campus attracts a diverse mixture of Mauritian home students along with others from around the world, from as far afield as Germany and the Czech Republic and as close as Madagascar and Africa.
