IN a bid to educate skilful and knowledgeable students, the Fiji National University conducted its enrolment drive in the North on Thursday.
As of yesterday, 300 students had registered.
University public relations officer Litia Tuiqaqa yesterday said the drive was conducted at major centres in Savusavu, Seaqaqa, Nabouwalu and on Taveuni.
"Enrolment drive for all the centres mentioned will continue next week from Wednesday to Saturday," Ms Tuiqaqa said.
"The numbers are coming in slowly from the centres but so far about 300 applicants have entered our booth — these exclude the current students.
"This is a nationwide practice and the public has responded positively to the drive."
Ms Tuiqaqa said this was also an opportunity to advise parents and students of the appropriate courses for each student.
"We are also enrolling students who wish to study in other campuses Fiji-wide as well.
"We have also introduced the postgraduate certificate in accounting program this year."
A total of 500 students study at the university's Labasa campus.
