CTI was recommended to me by one of my dad’s friends so I heard a lot of positive feedback about the institution. In addition it’s very positive to hear that there is more interaction between students and lecturers during the study period and also about possibilities of internships and job opportunities that CTI offers once graduated.”

“There’s a lot of positive vibes here today, I met so many friendly people, and the ambassadors and lecturers made me feel at home. The activities organised were the highlight of the day. I was recommended CTI by my peers as it provides an internationally recognised degree. My sister enrolled before me so I always knew that I would too eventually… I’m really looking forward to the Graphic Design course and I can’t wait to get started!”

“I fell in love with the Mauritian landscape when I came on holiday 3 years ago. I knew then that I wanted to come to CTI as I also want to improve my English while I’m here. Up till now I am still amazed by everything happening around. The CTI Facebook page also helped me to make my decision, I could see how amazing the people and the campus are from the posts when I was in Madagascar. It’s the perfect choice!”

“I did not think twice before joining CTI! The environment on the campus was the first thing that striked me. CTI is so different from all the other institutions. The welcome from the ambassadors and the activities took my shyness away really quick. I made a lot of new friends and I got really motivated by the speeches from the faculty heads!”
