Fiji Sun - - Usp Open Day - SHREEYA VERMA Edited by Jonathan Bryce Feed­back: [email protected]­jisun.com.fj

The Univer­sity of the South Pa­cific Open Day was opened yes­ter­day by the Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, Her­itage and Arts, Rosy Ak­bar.

Ms Ak­bar spoke to stu­dents from dif­fer­ent schools on the theme of this year’s USP Open Day – ‘Shap­ing Pa­cific Fu­tures’.

“Some of you may be the first in your fam­ily to con­sider at­tend­ing univer­sity and con­grat­u­la­tions. Many of you may have other fam­ily mem­bers who have attended univer­sity

be­fore and con­grat­u­la­tions on con­tin­u­ing in their foot­steps,” she said.

“USP gives you a choice of a com­pre­hen­sive range of rel­e­vant qual­i­fi­ca­tions, many of which can be pur­sued at all cam­puses and in a va­ri­ety of for­mats – face-to-face, on­line, flex­i­ble learn­ing, or via a mix­ture of modes.

“To all stu­dents present, I wish you well for your fi­nal ex­ams - study hard, per­form your best, burn that mid­night oil to qual­ify for ter­tiary stud­ies. I hope your ex­pe­ri­ence here today at the USP Lau­cala Cam­pus as well as in Lau­toka and Labasa Cam­puses will in­spire you to join USP in 2020,” she said.

She en­cour­aged stu­dents to use the USP Open Day as an op­por­tu­nity to learn about the univer­sity, its pro­grammes and cour­ses, meet the lec­tur­ers and pro­fes­sors, speak to cur­rent stu­dents and get a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what it will be like when they join.
