“Mauritius is a bridge between Africa and India, two of our students’ main regions of origin. Canada has gained in popularity and is now among the preferred destinations for higher education. We offer quality programs at affordable prices, and our degrees are recognized worldwide. What’s more, students benefit from an excellent quality of life, thanks not only to our level of development but also to the fact that we welcome people from many different cultures and lifestyles. We must also highlight the many professional opportunities that enable students to gain work experience in Canada, thanks to the Post-Graduation Work Program (PGWP),” says Dr. Craig Stephenson, President and CEO of Centennial College.
