Aberystwyth University's Mauritius campus has been criticised by a former vice-chancellor after just 40 students enrolled in its first two terms.
Prof Derec Llwyd Morgan, who ran the university 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.
The university said it was "a level of recruitment that compares more than favourably to the early phases of other international branch campuses".
Prof Morgan said: "They would be better concentrating their resources on high-quality staffing and attracting more domestic students."
The two other British universities to open in Mauritius - Wolverhampton and Middlesex - both had about 90 enrolments in their first year on the island, according to figures gathered by the country's higher education regulator.
The University of Central Lancashire also offers courses in Mauritius.
Earlier this year, Wolverhampton announced it was closing its campus, four years after it opened.
