Our Institution At A Glance

ENSA Nantes’s venue in Mauritius is driven by the school’s diversification strategy at international level and falls perfectly in line with the country’s Smart Cities project. It is the first Architecture school of that span to set up in Mauritius.

The school’s mission is to equip Mauritian as well as African students with the best tools and practices to meet the urban and architectural challenges, where pertinent human capital is required.

*The university reserves the right not to run new classes based on the number of enrolled students.
