Fiji National University
The Fiji National University is a newly founded University which has now taken responsibility for other Government owned education institutions. These campuses remain on their original sites but come under the auspices of the ‘Fiji National University’ creating a large resource of curriculum for students to choose from.
The university franchises its programmes locally, regionally and even internationally, offering affordable courses, supporting rural dwellers and creating centers for those interested in pursuing a vocational or technical career.
Fiji National University’s assessment system is not based on high school results but rather on the student’s ability to pass their initial exams after enrolling into the institute. This provides opportunities for students to re-apply themselves, reviewing their status and considering academic choices. There are six Colleges to choose from with enviable scholastic achievements to date with a track record of those graduating achieving their employment goal.
