As far as I know, UTM is a private university and you will need to find your own way of paying through the course. You can ask your parents to apply for a secured personal loan if they are able to mortgage their property or better yet, the Development Bank of Mauritius used to offer a student loan for something like Rs150,000 which was repayable once you've completed your course and have started working. I'm not sure whether they still have this but it's definitely worth calling them up to find out.

Btw, why are you choosing UTM over UoM?
