The Fiji National University held its Open Day yesterday at selected campuses around the country.

The Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Mahendra Reddy officiated at the Open Day celebrations at the Derrick Campus, Samabula, Suva.

The two-day event ends today.

“Open Day is all about opening doors for students to get a closer view of what is happening in the university,” Mr Reddy said.

“Open Day is the day for students and they can ask questions and clarify their doubts.”

He said the event could also help parents guide their children in making the right training for the career they would chose.

“There is a very defining decision a parent has to make when a child is choosing any career and students must have interest in the career they  chose.

“So, today is important and the massive amount of exhibition and work that has been done towards having this open day. Students I urge you all to visit the booths,” he said.

FNU acting vice-chancellor Ian Rouse said the Open Day displayed the programmes and the achievement of the university.

“I am always excited and I love FNU Open Day because it is a way of telling Fiji students about the great opportunity that FNU offers to them,” Professor Rouse said.

“It also encourages students to come and look at all the opportunities of what their future career might be.

“I encourage people to think about FNU because we offer courses in many different parts of Fiji and we offer such a wide range of programmes to students.

“We try to develop and improve the programmes and make better facilities for the students. There are many choices, many opportunities, excellent programmes, good locations and encouraging young people and their parents to think about the different opportunities for the future.

“Students you should dream big and think with excitement what you want to be,” he said.
