The decision to study Architecture must not be taken lightly.
It takes a total of 7 years to become a fully qualified Architect.
While it is an admirable profession it requires a large investment in not only time but money.

University de Nantes, Pierrefond is currently the only option for Mauritians to study Architecture without going abroad.
