Mauritius is famous in the world for its beauty, environmental richness and breath taking panoramic views. As a student, you may find it totally thrilling to spend your free time on the beach under the sun with your friends, snorkeling, going for green strolls and enjoying a tropical climate with lowest temperatures of 17°C in winter (there are only two seasons: summer as from November to March and winter as from April to October). The Mauritian culture itself is one to be tasted with the different ethnic groups living happily and peacefully together and so there is an amalgam of different cultures which can also be exclusively braided into one unique Mauritian culture too.

Mauritius has developed from a low-income, agriculture-based economy to a middle-income diversified economy. The economy is based on tourism, textiles, sugar, and financial services. In recent years, information and communication technology, seafood, hospitality and property development, healthcare, renewable energy, and education and training have emerged as important sectors, attracting substantial investment from both local and foreign investors. Mauritius has no exploitable natural resources and therefore depends on imported petroleum products to meet most of its energy requirements. Local and renewable energy sources are biomass, hydro, solar and wind energy. Mauritius has one of the largest Exclusive Economic Zones in the world; in 2012 the government announced its intention to develop the Ocean Economy. Mauritius is ranked high in terms of competitiveness, investment climate, governance and freest economy, the Gross Domestic Product (PPP) estimate was at $22.025 billion and GDP (PPP) per capita income over $16,820 in 2014, one of the highest in Africa.
