Aberystwyth University's Mauritius campus is 'madness'

Aberystwyth University's Mauritius campus has been criticised by a former Aberystwyth vice-chancellor after just 40 students enrolled in its first two terms, reports the BBC.

Professor Derec Llwyd Morgan, who ran the university in Wales from 1994 to 2004, told the BBC the figures showed it was a bad decision to go to a far-flung country. "The venture is madness," he said. "They would be better concentrating their resources on high-quality staffing and attracting more domestic students."

The University of Central Lancashire also offers courses in Mauritius, an African island nation. Earlier this year, Wolverhampton University announced it was closing its Mauritius campus, four years after it opened.
