I encourage parents to continue in their endeavours towards supporting their children’s education.

This was highlighted by the Speaker of Parliament and the University of Fiji Chancellor Ratu Epeli Nailatikau at the University 2019 graduation ceremony at the Saweni Campus in Lautoka yesterday.

At least 229 students successfully attained their awards during the ceremony.

Ratu Epeli said parental support for their children’s education, in the long term, was beneficial for both their families and the nation.

“The enormous contribution of the families to the success of their children is to be applauded,” Ratu Epeli said.

“Success comes to those who show commitment to their field of engagement. Most of us know that

there is no alternative pathway to achieving but hard work, dedication and perseverance.

“These new graduates add up to more than 3000 students who have successfully graduated since 2008. For a young university this is a tremendous outcome and this has not only benefited the graduates but also Fiji as a whole.”

He said being committed to the initiatives of the University has allowed the students to pursue their studies towards their tertiary level education.

“Being committed to the initiatives of establishing the University and its sustained progress over these 15 years has given students wishing to pursue their studies an opportunity to choose UNIFIJI for their tertiary education,” he said.

He added the number of students enrolled into the University now sits at 2626.

Ratu Epeli wished the students all the best for the future.
