The American Campus (TAC) is a new university that offers American Higher Education programs on the island of Mauritius. The rich culture and diversity of the island makes it an ideal place for students of all different backgrounds to live and study. TAC offers programs in various fields with a hands-on learning approach to teaching. This approach prepares our students to be innovative, creative, and empowered leaders in the workforce and elsewhere. We invite students from all over the world to apply and pursue a high-quality, cost-effective American education. No matter who you are, The American Campus is a great place to study and obtain an American Higher Education!
TAC was founded by a broad coalition of U.S. educators with substantial and varied experience. The learning and teaching techniques are based on the American model of active and applied academic learning.
TAC provides a superior educational experience to nurture students’ personal and career goals, qualifying them for immediate entry into the workplace after graduation, and setting them up for success in their chosen career. They achieve this by being well-informed about trends and opportunities in the regional job markets, and by collaborating with American university partners to offer meaningful programs on campus.
Beyond academic experience, students at TAC gain a supporting network of mentors and build relationships with potential employers through internships, community service, and applied research.
The American Campus’ programs of study are designed on four academic years each consisting of three semesters, paralleling semesters at the U.S. institutions. This allows faculty and student exchanges between the TAC and partnering universities for specific programs.
Semesters are not identified by season (i.e. fall, spring, or summer) as they are in the United States because of confusion between southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere partnering schools. Semesters are approximately 16 weeks with one to two breaks in between.
The American Campus’ programs of study are completed in 4 semesters for two-year degrees or 8 semesters for four-year degrees.
Each semester is approximately 16 weeks with one to two week breaks in between. Semesters follow the following schedule:
