FNU offers TVET courses in Business, Tourism and Hospitality

Press Release Posted On: March 23, 2022

As a dual-sector institution, the Fiji National University (FNU) offers courses in various fields of study through its Higher Education (HE) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) stream of learning.

This provides multiple entry pathways to ensure that quality education is accessible to all prospective and continuing students. At FNU’s College of Business, Tourism and Hospitality (CBHTS), high school and other interested students can begin university through our TVET stream with over 20 programmes to choose from.

CBHTS Dean Professor Arun Elias said Year 13 students who have received their external exam results and may not have met the admission requirements for Higher Education programmes can still study at CBHTS in a TVET course.

“We have a wide range of TVET courses in fields such as Baking & Patisserie, Cookery and Culinary Arts to Front Office Operations, Administration, Banking, Accounting, and Hospitality and Hotel Management,” Prof Elias said.

“Year 13 students can still achieve their academic dreams at FNU and be workforce-ready through a TVET course at the College.”

“We urge students to visit our campuses at Nasinu, Namaka in Nadi, Ba and Labasa this week from March 21 until March 25 for one-to-one consultations by our staff with students and their parents and guardians.”

“Students can also complete their admission and registration process on-campus and submit the required documents for the Tertiary Scholarships and Loans Service (TSLS) placement for TVET at FNU.”

Students completing or have completed Year 12 have the opportunity to undergo Semester 1, 2022 studies in any TVET course at FNU through the 5,000 TSLS placements.

Offered through the University’s TVET Pasifika, these courses are Certificate III, Certificate IV and Diploma level qualifications.

Students eligible for TSLS-funded studies must have successfully completed Year 12 with a minimum mark of 200/400 or completed Level I and II studies from the Technical College of Fiji or equivalent.

Year 12 students are encouraged to apply now for TVET studies at FNU while awaiting their external exam results.
