Nineteen-year-old Kritesh Chand was excited when he received an offer letter from the Fiji National University (FNU) yesterday morning.

An hour later, Mr Chand made his way to the FNU Nasinu Campus ac­companied by his mother and sister to complete his enrolment.

He enrolled for the Bachelors in Management and Information Sys­tem programme, which is offered by the College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies (CBHTS).

“I chose to study at the Fiji Na­tional University because I have friends who advised me that FNU has better learning facilities when compared to other institutions,” Mr Chand.

“I believe that FNU has well-qual­ified staff who are always there to assist students.”

Mr Chand said a few months ago he was undecided on his career path and it was through the advice he received from the FNU Aca­demic office, which enabled him to make a career choice.

“Getting enrolled for this pro­gramme was something which I chose after discussions with FNU staff during FNU’s Open Day in August. I was clueless, with no idea where I’d be heading in life. I ex­plained this to the particular staff who informed me about the CSIS programme,” he said.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pass Math subject in my external examination, therefore I did not qualify for it.

“FNU further assisted me in look­ing at the next option, which is Management and Information Sys­tems.”

The former Pundit Shreedhar Maharaj College student said his siblings also played a pivotal role in his career decision making.

“My sister and brother have also studied here and were easily able to enter the workforce,” he said.

Sister Pritika Chand said she was happy with the news that her broth­er managed to secure a place for himself at one of the Fiji’s largest universities.

“We all wanted him to study at FNU and this is possible now. We are now awaiting confirmation from TELS. It is now up to him to strive hard and achieve his dreams,” she said.

Chand will begin studies at FNU Nasinu Campus from next month.
