Senior Academic faculty from across Fiji National University are attending a skills training workshop that will strengthen their mentoring and supervision skills for guiding students seeking higher academic degrees.

The programme is funded by the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Research and facilitated by Professor of Educational Research and Acting Dean of College of Humanities and Education,
