Free Short Courses

Eligible Fijians can also apply for a Free short course at FNU as part of the Fijian Government’s reskilling and upskilling initiative. As announced in the 2021 National Budget, the Government allocated $1 million to the national university to assist those who lost their employment due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This would assist eligible Fijians with re-employment and or entrepreneurial ventures.
