Minister for Education Mahendra Reddy yesterday said the Fiji National University was an exceptional institution providing qualifications from a broad range of disciplines.

“FNU is a dual mode and a unique institution which provides qualification for the widest range possible in the entire universities in the Pacific,” Mr Reddy said.

The Education Minister was speaking yesterday at the opening  of the FNU Alumni Day at the Nasinu campus. The event was attended by alumni and students from Fiji and abroad.

“We are happy to support the university as far as quality is concerned. We want quality learning and quality mentors,” Mr Reddy said.

FNU has seven colleges, at 44 locations around the country with more than 2300 staff and over 15,500 registered students.

“Today is about coming home, and coming home is coming back to the foundation where you educate yourself, and where you spent those fun years,” he said.

“We strongly believe that if we invest in the current generation’s education, we will be able to secure a knowledge-based society in the future.”

FNU Vice Chancellor Professor Nigel Healey encouraged the students and alumni to register for the FNU LinkedIn Page.

“We are living in a virtual world. LinkedIn FNU page has numerous benefits to the university, and most importantly we will be able to track the progress of FNU alumni as they build their careers and maintain ongoing relationships that we can use to benefit the upcoming students, for example, mentorship and alumni giving lectures to our students,” Mr Nigel said.

It was the first ever homecoming event for FNU allowing the current FNU staff and students and community at large to mingle as the alumni shared their experiences.
