The Fiji National University (FNU), will be hosting six graduation ceremonies throughout this month for more than 1000 students who were to have graduated in December last year.

Following
the measles outbreak that affected Fiji and other Pacific Island countries
towards the end of 2019, FNU decided to postpone scheduled ceremonies for the
safety of students, their families, staff and invited guests. The postponement
was done following advice from the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of
Health and Medical Services.

The
College of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (CAFF) and National Training and
Productivity (NTPC) students will kickstart graduation with a combined ceremony
on Wednesday, March 11.

This
will be followed by the College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies
(CBHTS) ceremony at 9 am and the College of Engineering, Science and Technology
(CEST) graduation at 2 pm on Thursday, March 12.

The
Labasa Campus graduation will be held on Thursday, March 19 at the Labasa Civic
Centre.

The College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences’ (CMNHS) will conclude FNU’s graduation ceremonies on Friday, March 27 with two sessions for the Medicine and Nursing students respectively.

The
College of Humanities and Education (CHE) ceremony will be combined with the
April graduation.

FNU
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nigel Healey said although the students were issued
with completion letters and transcripts following the postponement, the
graduands would now be able to celebrate their years of sacrifices and studies
in the presence of their families, friends and lecturers.

“We
very much regretted the postponement, but we are happy the students will now
get their time to celebrate, as graduations are one of the highlights of our
academic calendar,” said Professor Healey.

“I
know this is a day that they look forward to from the minute they begin studies
at FNU, so it is only fitting that we host these ceremonies to acknowledge
them.”

“We
applaud all our graduates and we know they are now ready to venture into the
world and enjoy life making a living after gaining new skills, practical
experiences and real opportunities at the University.”

Professor
Healey said this graduation was significant as the first batch of students from
the CAFF Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry programme would be
receiving their qualifications.

“The
FNU family congratulates all our graduates in the Certificate, Diploma and
Trade Diploma, Degree, Postgraduate and Masters programmes.”

“These
students now join our vast and successful network of alumni in Fiji and abroad
who are excelling in their professions and making a difference in their
communities.”
