Minister Addresses Students ON ‘SHAPING PACIfiC FUTURES’
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.
