As we all make adjustments to our daily lives to help combat the spread of COVID-19, I want to reassure our students that the University will support you through these challenging times.
Student welfare remains our core focus. As outlined in the joint statement with FNUSA on 3 May, the University is working closely with elected student representatives to ensure that all students can complete their studies, and that no student is disadvantaged. If you have a concern, please contact your College, the Office of the Registrar (details below), or your FNUSA representative.
FNU has renewed its agreement with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) Vodafone Fiji Limited and Digicel Fiji which will allow its users to access the University website www.fnu.ac.fj and Moodle platform free of charge. This means the students do not need data to view FNU online pages. Students can access resources materials via the FNU page, upload assignments and download lecture notes and other materials free of charge.
Students are encouraged to contact their College for specific details of the teaching, learning and assessment of their course. Students may also contact the Office of the Registrar via email EOR@fnu.ac.fj
Students and staff will receive regular updates by email, telephone and general notices on social media.
I urge everyone to follow the official health advice and adhere to all government guidance to combat the spread of COVID-19. If you are experiencing symptoms like a dry cough, fever, fatigue/tiredness, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath/chest pain, aches and pains, please call 158 immediately. Please avoid all unnecessary travel. If you have to leave your home, please activate the Care FIJI app, wear a face-covering, observe strict social distancing, and practise excellent hand hygiene.
Above all, please be kind and understanding to your fellow students and staff during this difficult period. Together, as one community, we will come through these challenges.
Stay safe and best wishes,
Professor Toby Wilkinson
Fiji National University
