The Career & Learning Lounge opened its doors on Friday, July 5, at the Caudan Arts Centre, providing a valuable opportunity for students and job seekers to connect with various educational and professional institutions. Running over two days, until Saturday, July 6, the event brings together a plethora of exhibitors to showcase their services and offer valuable advice.

For its fifth edition, this fair positions itself as a privileged meeting place for students who wish to continue their higher education and for those looking for new career opportunities. Among the exhibitors, there are several Mauritian universities as well as facilitators specialized in supporting students wishing to continue their studies abroad.

Among them, we find the University of Technology (UTM) which presents its five faculties and its different academic programs. “We are present at the Career & Learning Lounge to present our different options for those who are starting tertiary studies, but also for those who are working and who want to continue their studies. We have programs from Master to PhD,” explains Vandhana Gungabissoon.

Indeed, representatives from several institutions are present to answer questions, provide detailed information on study programs, admission requirements, and scholarship opportunities as well. Moreover, at the Charles Telfair Institute booth, visitors can learn about the academic year that is currently starting in July.

International facilitators, on the other hand, play a crucial role for those considering studying abroad. They provide advice on choosing universities, administrative procedures, visas, and even cultural integration in the host country. Their presence at the fair allows students to better understand the opportunities available to them and to plan their academic future with greater serenity.

Academic Advisors

“We offer to support students to help them make the best choices, but once they arrive in Canada, we also have a team on site that helps them integrate better,” explains Rajkumar Seeparsad of Dodo Immigration. The goal is to ensure that everything goes well for those who want to settle there as well. “For young people, those under 35, we recommend that they opt for studies first and then settle permanently in Canada,” he emphasizes.

The fair also offers an excellent networking opportunity. Visitors have the opportunity to meet potential employers, career experts, and academic advisors. Exchanging with these professionals provides valuable insights and the opportunity to make contacts that could prove decisive for the professional future of the participants. This is also the case at Kalexius, which is currently recruiting.

Kalexius is a law firm that is not traditional. The company is a provider of alternative legal services (Legal Service Provider). It is an international company created in 2012, whose parent company is located in Switzerland, with offices in France, England, Israel, Uruguay and the United States. The Mauritian team is expanding and constantly evolving and is currently recruiting. “We are at this fair to make ourselves known and especially to recruit. We currently have three vacancies and we are looking for a Legal Project Manager”, says Reine Aza, from Kalexius.
