Government has decided to introduce free higher education in public Tertiary Education Institutions (TEIs). Free education at that level will be the norm irrespective of whether the courses are run on a part-time or full-time mode. With regard to courses run on a dual-campus mode as part of a partnership agreement between a local public TEI and a foreign institution, students would be exempted from payment of tuition fees at the local institution but would have to meet the tuition costs claimed by the foreign institution.

The Government of Mauritius offers scholarships at undergraduate level to African students. Applicants must be resident citizens of member states of the African Union or of Commonwealth African countries.
This initiative is part of the Government of Mauritius commitment to promote capacity-building at various levels across the African continent through its strong belief that Higher Education is one of the key elements of growth and social development. This is all in line with the Government of Mauritius respect and upholding of Goal 4 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a target of which is to substantially expand globally the number of scholarships available to developing countries by 2020.
