    Difficulty with study

    Sometimes there are things happening in your life outside university that make studying more difficult. Sometimes it’s your course that you find difficult.

    Whatever your personal challenge, we have a special team who work with you. They'll help you progress to the next year of your course and go on to complete your degree successfully.

    Disability support

    Middlesex University is committed to ensuring that disability does not create a barrier to participation in learning and teaching, facilities and services for existing and prospective students. Our facilities accommodate wheelchair users and ensure one can move around the campus without any difficulty. Our friendly and welcoming staff is always available to provide help and support.

    Personal support

    We’ll help you deal with any financial, practical, or legal difficulties that come up when you’re studying at Middlesex. We can give you one-to-one support through appointments, phone calls and email as well as online and printed information and workshops. Our advice is confidential, and we won’t judge you.

    If we can't help you, we will point you in the direction of external services that can.

    Visa support

    Laws in Mauritius require all non-national students to obtain a residence permit (study visa) for the duration of their studies. Middlesex University Mauritius assists students during the visa application process for studying on any of our academic programmes.

    The procedure for applying for a residence permit cannot commence until you have accepted our offer of admission, cleared all academic conditions (if any), submitted medicals and paid your tuition fee deposit. Once we receive all your documents, we will apply at the Passport and Immigration Office for a provisional entry permit on your behalf. The process usually takes approximately 21 days. You are advised to apply and pay as early as possible if you require a residence permit.

    Airport Transfer

    Middlesex University Mauritius offers a student experience with a difference! We offer a complimentary airport pick-up service for all international students arriving in Mauritius.   We want to ensure our students have a smooth and safe arrival to their new home.

    Medical Guidance

    It is compulsory for all international students to be covered by medical insurance, the cost is included in the fees.

    On arrival

    Health officials from the Ministry of Health will perform a malaria test on campus for all international students arriving from the Africa region within their first week and every time they enter Mauritius.

    Within the first month, all new international students must undergo medical tests at a local medical laboratory (cost to be borne by the student) and submit the results and your new address for the University to apply for their Residence Permit.  Once you have received the Residence Permit, then only you can open a Mauritian bank account.

    Pre-Arrival Support

    We have a welcome guide specifically designed for international students. This will be emailed to you along with the Provisional Entry Permit. The guide contains useful information about preparing for studying abroad and what to expect when you arrive.

    This guide covers topics such as general information about Mauritius and accommodation options, arranging medical insurance, part-time work and also guidance on what to bring with you.
