It’s very important for parents to support the education of their children, says proud mum, Monica Narayan.

 

Kineet Raj, 17, was excited to be starting university life yesterday as soon as he completed his enrolment at the Fiji National University.

Mr Raj was accompanied by his mother and two small brothers at the Samabula campus and travelled from Nausori.

He is applying for a Trade Diploma in Applied computing which is a three year programme. He aspires to become a computer programmer.

“It’s very important for parents to support the education of their children,” said proud mum, Monica Narayan.

Former Ballantine Memorial School student, Teresia Caberi, said working hard and avoiding peer pressure was important.

Ms Caberi, 18, came with her aunt Vukuta Kuruduadua to enrol her for the Foundation science programme at the Nabua campus.

She will later be pursuing a Bachelor of Science programme and aspires to become a lab technician.

Ms Caberi is the eldest of five siblings and she is the first in her family to enter university.

Her parents live in Naqaravatu, Naitasiri, and she stays with her aunt in Suva.

Yesterday students were still coming to enrol for their units for the new trimester and seeking counselling as well.

Fiji National University Head of School for Automobile Engineering and Road Transport, Fotu Yavala, said they were expecting more students in his faculty this year.

Mr Yavala said they were currently working to get their programmes accredited internationally so it could be recognized across the world.

The long term goals for the college this year is to go back to the semester mode of teaching, he said.

The college has three faculties namely: the faculty of engineering, the faculty of transport, and the faculty of sciences.

They offer programmes on certificate levels, certificate for higher diploma and degree programmes.

Enrollment for the first trimester started this week and the commencement of the Trimester academic year begins on January 16.
