ENSA Nantes (Mauritius)


The ‘Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Nantes’ opened a branch in Mauritius in 2016  with an internationalisation ambition on the African continent and in the Indian Ocean which is perfectly in line with the country’s Smart Cities project. It is located on the Pierrefonds campus of Uniciti Education Hub and is the first Architecture school to set up in Mauritius which offers courses in the fields of architecture and urban planning.
