Welcome to British Council Mauritius. Although the nature of our work may have changed since we first established a presence in Mauritius in 1950, we remain committed to providing Mauritians with learning opportunities and a connection to the UK. Our work in Mauritius focuses on English and Education.

Learn English with us: whatever your level of English, we can help you develop your English language skills. At our Teaching Centre in Rose Hill, we offer a wide variety of courses for children, adults and professionals. We also have courses for people who are preparing to take the IELTS  test. Call us now to book a placement test.
Business English: In today’s challenging business environment, companies are seeking employees with English language skills to help their organisation compete internationally. Give yourself a vital advantage by making sure you have the language skills that employers are looking for. Gain a Business English Certificate (BEC) and take your career to the next level with a BEC Vantage.
English online: for practical tips on improving your English language skills, have a look at our free online resources. There are dedicated sections for kids, adults and professionals. Children can have fun with games, songs and activities – and learn English too.
Teaching English: we work closely with the Ministry of Education and the Mauritius Institute of Education to support the professional development of English teachers through workshops and other training events. Our Teaching English website provides a wealth of practical resources for teachers to use in the classroom. Register now to receive regular updates.
CELTA course: Are you interested in becoming an English Language teacher? The British Council in Mauritius runs CELTA teacher training courses in July and November. This is a passport to teaching English anywhere in the world. Call us now to book an interview.
English Exams: learners of English can gain an internationally recognised qualification with us. If you are planning to study, live or work abroad, an IELTS exam will open doors. Primary school pupils can test their level of English by taking a Cambridge Young Learner exam.


Connecting Classrooms: Connecting Classrooms is a programme that establishes and develops long-term, sustainable school partnerships across 20 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and the UK.
Creative writing competition: each year, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, we organise a creative writing competition.
Studying in the UK: we help with information on studying in the UK. Visit the Education UK website to find out more.
DelPHE: The Delphe programme was a successful project which was implemented in several countries in the region. It ended in March 2013 and DfiD gave a very good rating. As the programme is now closed, there has been a selection of projects to represent each of the Millennium Development Goals. The selected case studies are from Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Sudan. The cases show how much can be achieved with a comparatively small amount of funding, partners that are well-matched and lots of enthusiasm and support from staff and students at the institutions who took part in DelPHE to make their projects work. Please view the DelPHE case studies document.
