The University of Fiji is discounting its Foundation and Year 1 fees for 2021 to encourage students to attend the university despite the slash in TELS sponsorship.

The Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Shaista Shameem said the removal of TELS support for students with 200-249 marks was a big blow to many high school students.

She said that in view of the fact that these students would now have to support themselves in foundation or first year or their parents would have to support them, the University of Fiji had decided to discount fees to a fraction of what students would normally pay.

This was to ensure that those with aspirations for a university education would not miss out.

First year students who join the School of Business and Economics, the School of Humanities and Arts, the School of Science and Technology, the Justice Devendra Pathik School of Law and the Centre for iTaukei studies will see a reduction of 12 per cent or more in tuition fees in 2021.

Students enrolling in the Foundation Studies Programme will enjoy a 44 per cent reduction in fees in 2021.

In addition, students who find it difficult to pay their fees upfront will be able to arrange payment plans with the Finance Office.

In 2021, the university will offer programmes using the ‘Face-to-Face Online’ methodology, incorporating the ‘virtual classroom’ to help reduce travel and accommodation costs for students.

Students can contact the university for further information regarding fee reduction.
