Forty international students graduated from the University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Faculty of Arts, Law and Education’s Intensive English Programme (IEP) last Friday.

The programme is spread over four terms in an academic year under which students from various countries study English in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.

Faculty of Arts, Law and Education dean Dr Akanisi Kedrayate said the graduation reflected the impact the partnership between USP and SkyEdu was making in the lives of graduating students and the community at large.

SkyEdu Investment Limited is an independent student recruitment company based in South Korea and has been registered in Fiji since 2010.

Following its inception in 2007, it has recruited over 200 Korean students to study English under the Fijian educational system.

“I am deeply honoured to be afforded the opportunity to be present at this graduation ceremony. And I would like to congratulate each and every graduate for making it to this joyous occasion,” Ms Kedrayate said.

She encouraged the graduates saying it required hard work and perseverance to learn English.

“Continue to speak in English which will only make you better and you will be able to communicate with people anywhere in the world,” she said.

Meanwhile, a graduate Marine Hahn said: “When I first came to Fiji, I did not know how to speak in English at all and today I am standing here giving a speech.”

He said he was going to enroll in USP’s bridging programme and continue studying at the university.

“I have learned a lot from this IEP and now I have more confidence and I can communicate with anyone around the world,” he said.
