We spent a fun-filled afternoon of Mauritius Day which was held at the University with the aim of celebrating the increasing Mauritian student population at QIUP who have chosen the university as the place to obtain their tertiary education as well to mingle around and getting to know more about their beautiful culture.
This is part of the International days organised to get to know the different countries our International students come from. Currently, 28 countries are represented in QIUP making the University truly international, with the numbers set to grow.
Since food has attained the status of a cultural expression that speaks the similarities among us, members of the staffs and students of QIUP had earlier experienced an exciting lunch break dipping in both the food and culture of Mauritius through treats to exotic tastes and aromas of local dishes from Mauritius, prepared by our Mauritian students namely Sameerah Ramjane, Bachelor of Finance (Hons), Soormally Bibi Azraa, Bachelor of Arts (Hons) TESL and Rughoonundan Vikraj, Diploma In Business Management as well as enjoying showcase of a video that depicts the best of Mauritius!
Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Nicholas Goh urged all students to get to know each other not only in gatherings such as this but on a daily basis in class on other social gatherings. He also added that all of us can learn from each other and have a better understanding which will be beneficial to all.
All and all, it was a lovely occasion and we had tons of FUN!
