The head of the European Union Delegation for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs, yesterday encouraged students to study hard to get good jobs for a better future.
He was officiating at the University of the South Pacific Open Day yesterday at the Laucala Campus.
He said studying helped students make right career choices which could shape their futures.
“The theme of the Open Day is ‘Shaping your Future.’ Perhaps that should be an instruction to shape your future. Use everything you can find here today (yesterday) to help you to decide what shape you want your future to have,” Mr Jacobs said.
USP’s vice-chancellor, Professor Rajesh Chandra, said a student’s decision could make a difference.
“The choice of university is one of the most important decisions of a person’s life, and I believe USP is the right choice for bright and ambitious Pacific Islanders who wish to learn and excel at a world-class institution; in short, people like you,” Professor Chandra said.
Thousands of students from schools around Viti Levu took advantage of the educational displays.
Ratu Sukuna Memorial School student Jerry Ratini said the Open Day was an eye-opener.
“I have decided to come to USP next year because I believe their educational level is encouraging,” the Year 13 student said.
Sigatoka Valley High School student Diana Nawaqa said the trip was worth the effort.
Penang Sangam High School student Yogeshni Devi said: “I believe the decision I make will shape my future. My dream is to study at USP next year,” the Year 13 student said.
