Search for the 'best ones'

FIJIAN students can benefit from scholarship programs offered by the European Union.

This is the view of Monika Holik, an EU education official who spoke at yesterday's information session with FNU.

Ms Holik and her team were impressed by the turnout of FNU students to the sessions for the Intra-ACP and Erasmus scholarship programs.

"Last year 31 Fijians were offered Intra-ACP scholarships and that is quite high; and a bit less for the Erasmus program but we hope to have more after this information session," Ms Holik said.

The Intra-ACP scholarship is focused on student exchange programs with the Pacific and the Caribbean regions while the Erasmus scholarship offers studies in Europe.

"There are a lot of Fijian students that could benefit from these programs.

"We are looking for the best ones and it requires a lot of preparation and focus in order to be successful.

"The application might seem, in the beginning, a bit complicated but there are students who are ready to help.

"It is a very big adventure and a nice experience to study and work abroad.

"It's not only about studying but knowing new people, meeting other cultures and learning other languages too."
