Why not enrol with us today
Students applying to USP directly from high school must have attempted either the Fiji School Leaving Certificate (Form 6) or the Fiji Seventh Form Examination (Form 7). There are particular entry requirements for some programmes, but the minimum mark required is 250 and have passed English and three other subjects.
If you did not meet this minimum requirement you may still be eligible to study at USP but will have to complete some subjects at Preliminary (Form 6) or Foundation (Form 7) level before being admitted to your chosen degree.
Mature Student Admission Criteria
A person who has not passed a Senate recognised Form 7 or equivalent examination or completed a diploma or degree at a recognised tertiary institution, may be admitted as a mature entry student to a specific programme if, in the opinion of Senate or its delegate, they are considered likely to be able to complete the programme successfully. The decision will take into account the person's age, academic background and nature of the persons employment or occupation.
