This tie-up has the potential to widen the scope of Uni Fiji’s reach in promoting students in the rural communities to further their education

Post Fiji Limited yesterday signed a three year agreement with the University of Fiji that will allow their students to pay their tuition fees at any Post Fiji outlet in the country.

The agreement was signed by Uni Fiji executive director of Finance Ravineet Sami, and Post Fiji acting chief executive officer, William Wong.

“Prior to these partnership Uni Fiji students were only able to pay their tuition either at the Uni Fiji Samabula campus in Suva or at the main campus at Saweni, Lautoka,” Mr Sami said.

“This agreement opens up the opportunity for parents to be able to pay for their children’s tertiary education from the comfort of their communities.

“This tie up has the potential to widen the scope of Uni Fiji’s reach in promoting students in the rural communities to further their education.”

Mr Wong said the unique position of Post Fiji which had the widest footprint in the nation together with its obligation to offer postal services to the general public meant that Post Fiji had the greatest chance of being and remaining relevant to the lives of the people.

“With the signing of this MOU, students can simply take their invoice to any of the 58 post offices across Fiji and make their tuition payment rather than being restricted to only two of Uni Fiji’s campuses.

“Post Fiji already has a similar partnership with the University of the South Pacific and it will continue to extend its business partnership with other tertiary institutions to ensure that all Fijians could have access to better education and services for themselves and their families through the Post Offices Fiji wide,” Mr Wong said.

The Post Fiji Limited offices would be collecting the payments on behalf of Uni Fiji and remitting the same to Uni Fiji at periodic intervals.

Uni Fiji students can go to any of the following Post Fiji outlets to make their tuition payments: Ba, Nasinu, Dreketi, Nausori, General Post Office Suva, Navua, Government Buildings, Nayavu, Keiyasi, Pacific Harbour, Korolevu, Raiwaqa, Korovou, Rakiraki, Labasa, Rotuma, Lami, Sabeto, Lautoka, Samabula, Lautoka Downtown, Savusavu, Levuka, Seaqaqa, Lomaivuna, Sigatoka, Nabouwalu, Tavua, Nabua, Vatukoula, Nadi, Vunidawa, Nadi Airport, Vunisea, Nakasi, Wainikoro, Namaka, Waiyevo, Lakeba Village, Nasau, Lekutu, Lakeba, Namalata, Lomaloma, Natewa, Cicia, Tukavesi, Moce, Rabi, Kabara, Daria, Ono-i- Lau, Naleca, Matuku, Dravuni, Naroi, Qarani, and Totoya.
