A German national who moved to Fiji when he was five years old graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Mathematics from the University of the South Pacific yesterday.

Along with his undergraduate degree, Martin Feussner scooped the Gold Medal and BSP prize as Vice Chancellor and President’s top male graduate with the best combined academic performance and record of service to the community.

Mr Feussner also walked away with three other Gold medals under the Faculty of Science, Technology and Environment.

“I feel excited and proud to get graduated today,” Mr Feussner said

He spoke of several challenges he faced during his studies at USP, chief among them being poor time management.

“I am a procrastinator and often waste my time thinking about what I have to do rather than doing it,” Mr Feussner said.

He said most students thought  university studies were very intense, but said in his opinion it was meant to accommodate working people and mature students.

Mr Feussner plans to study for a Bachelor of Science degree in Astronomy in the Netherlands.

If all goes to plan and he is able to obtain documents, he will start his studies in September

Mr Feussner undertook his earlier education at Rishikul Primary School and Rishikul Sanatan College.
