Ni sa bula vinaka, Namaste and Welcome to Fiji National University.

Fiji National University has a long and proud history, with roots stretching back to the foundation of Suva Medical School in 1885. FNU is now established as the national public university of Fiji, supporting the development of the nation and the wider region. FNU offers both technical and vocational education and training (TVET) at levels 1-6 and higher education at levels 5-10 (up to doctoral degrees). FNU is also a comprehensive university, offering courses across a wide spectrum of subjects including agriculture and fisheries, business and law, humanities and education, medicine and nursing, engineering and science.

Looking to the future, FNU aims to be recognised as the leading dual-sector university in the region, supporting individual achievement, national aspiration and regional development, and providing skills and solutions to address global challenges. Striving for excellence in all we do, our focus is on education for employability, research with real-world impact, an outstanding student experience, and a sustainable future for our university, our communities and our planet.
