Mauritius Education and Training



Mauritius has made great investments in education. As a result, almost nine out of ten residents can read and write. The school system is well developed and the tuition is free of charge up to the university level.

School compulsory schooling has eleven years between the ages of 5 and 16. In principle, all children complete the first six years of primary school. About three out of four students proceed to the next stage. Private schools are common, about three out of four students in the six-year low school attend private school. In recent years, increased investments have been made in vocational schools.

  • COUNTRYAAH: Country facts of Mauritius, including geography profile, population statistics, and business data.

Much of the teaching takes place in English and French, which has led to children from poor families who are not fluent in these languages ​​dropping out of school. The government is therefore making efforts to increase teaching in the local languages ​​Morisy or Bhojpuri.

Mauritius has two universities in Port Louis. Several UK universities also have branches in the country. During the first decade of the 21st century, the number of young Mauritians studying at one of the country's universities or colleges was tripled. It is also common to conduct higher studies abroad.
