2019 Association of Commonwealth Universities Summer School
Deadline: January 13, 2019.
Join us in Mauritius for a week of expert lectures by local and international speakers, social events, engaging and challenging group project work, and field trips to key locations related to public health. Developed by senior University of Mauritius subject specialists, the programme is set to broaden your knowledge, develop your skills, provide opportunities for networking and much more.
On top of all this, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in Mauritian culture, including a full-day excursion to heritage sites and beauty spots, and the chance to attend the opening ceremony of the 2019 Indian Ocean Island Games.
Students often tell us they find participating in the Summer School to be a life-changing experience. It’s a small and friendly event capped at 45 participants, ensuring each participant can be actively involved during the programme.
Our speakers are an exciting mix of international and local experts, who are senior academics and representatives from governmental organisations, health-related industries and NGOs.
