​​Licensing of Recruiting Agents for Overseas Educational and Training Institutions

Mauritian students who wish to pursue higher education can apply directly to the universities or can go through a local recruiting agent. A recruiting agent is a person/company who recruits students for admission to overseas educational and training institutions who provide or offer post-secondary education and training, including technical or professional education. 

These recruiting agents need to be registered with the Ministry of Education, Tertiary Education, Science and Technology to be able to recruit Mauritian students to the overseas educational and training institutions. 

A Licensing Committee is set up at the Ministry to consider applications from individuals who wish to act as a recruiting agents and issues Licenses as and when required. The Licensing Committee considers and approves requests from recruiting agents to represent overseas educational and training institutions and also monitors the activities of recruiting agents to safeguard the interest of the students.
