FNU Study Update – 15 March 2022

Press Release Posted On: March 15, 2022

The Fiji National University will commence with classes for the Semester 1 academic year on Monday, 21 March with orientation and campus tours organised for our incoming first-year students.

Prospective, new and continuing students can still visit an Enrolment Centre at the nearest FNU campus to complete their admission and registration process.

FNU is offering Conditional Admission Letters to Year 13 students who are awaiting their external exam results. With this Conditional Offer, students will be admitted into the programme and conditionally registered into courses for Semester 1, 2022 and be allowed to attend classes from 21 March, 2022. Final Offer Letters will be released upon the release of Year 12 or Year 13 examination results should students meet the MER of the programme.

Year 13 students who have applied for a quota-based programme with an MER of Year 12 will be provided with a provisional offer letter while awaiting the 2021 Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination results.

A Final Offer Letter will be given to students upon the release of Year 12 and Year 13 examination results should students meet the MER of the programme. However, Year 13 students who already meet the MER for their Diploma or Certificate IV programmes will be provided an offer letter upon application.


  • Students who do not meet the Minimum Entry Requirement (MER) for their chosen programme after receiving their exam results, will be transferred to an alternate programme (usually TVET) that they may qualify for.
  • If an alternative programme is unavailable, the student will be further counselled to take up studies in the short courses available at FNU. (Students have the liberty to discontinue undertaking the alternative programme offered, if they wish to)
  • Tertiary Scholarships and Loans Service (TSLS) will decide on the award of the National Toppers Scheme (NTS) and Tertiary Education Loan Scheme (TELS) only after the release of school exam results.
  • If a student meets the MER for their Higher Education programme but does not receive TSLS funding and cannot fund themselves, they will be offered a transfer to a TVET programme eligible for TSLS funding.
  • Alternatively, if the student wishes to still pursue the Higher Education programme, they may take advantage of the flexible fee payment plan available at FNU.


Courses will be offered via blended delivery of both face-to-face and online to accommodate for students who may be awaiting confirmation of their scholarship and/or loan application.

Students who require assistance regarding their study programmes are requested to contact the respective course coordinators or email the College representatives for assistance.
