There are further plans in place for the Fiji National University’s School of Tourism and hospitality up in the North.

Newly appointed acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Rouse is sorting out priorities and one of them is to develop training facilities in the tourism and hospitality sector.

Professor Rouse says tourism and hospitality are critical for Fiji.

“It is probably one of the most significant sources of income for the country,” he said.

“And it is important for the university to provide training in that area.”

Professor Rouse is a great supporter for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and wants it to be one of the areas of focus for the university.

“We need to make sure that we have the right facility across the country to cater for the interest of tourism and hospitality,” he said.

“From my understanding, there are great resorts in the North and we have great potential there. There aren’t many facilities, so we need to develop a facility for training at higher level for tourism and hospitality there.”

He said this was one of the priority areas for the university and the FNU council would closely work with Government to ensure it materialised.

Meanwhile, the University has plans to build a campus in Labasa to provide students of Vanua Levu access to career-oriented education training.
