Why study in Morocco?

Morocco’s geographical position on the north shore of Africa means it’s close to both Spain and the Middle East, having a profound effect on the country's history and culture. From medieval medinas to the Atlas Mountains, Morocco has many intoxicating sights to discover for international students.

Although not the official language of the country, French is widely used in Moroccan media and business, and taught in schools.

Moroccans are predominantly religious, and may be more conservative in terms of dress and etiquette than many western countries. The country’s healthy tourism industry means it is a tolerant and hospitable place, perfect for international students to experience a new culture.
