I went to the UK for medicine about 15 years ago.

Negatives compared to other countries:
– The UK tuition fees are generally at the top end of the range
– Cost of living has become very high in the country (energy bills and rent in particular have soared with very little regulation, and food/groceries also expensive post-Brexit – though the latter are still cheaper than Mauritius)
– The gov is very anti-foreigner so I’ve been told they’re reducing places for overseas students (that makes application more competitive) and following your studies it is harder to get a work visa to stay on if you were looking to settle

Positives compared to other countries:
– The application process is straightforward. You apply through UCAS and can apply for a student visa online (when I applied it was in person at Port Louis which may still be an option – you need to ask around people who have gone more recently). UCAS has advice on coming to the UK as an international student [here](
– Easy travel options – there are flights to the UK every day.
– No need to learn a new language (unlike China or Eastern European unis).

Hope that helps!

    While being ruled by the French East India Company, sugarcane plantations prospered in Mauritius, making it one of the most significant contributors to the economy. Mauritius also remained an important stopping point on the trade routes from Europe before the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869.
