Update: 4:01PM PRIME Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama met more than 100 students and parents this morning to address their concerns regarding the Tertiary Education Loans Scheme commonly known as TELS.

The consultations-style meeting was in response to concerns raised by students and parents on the various processes involved in disbursing funds for students to begin or continue studies under the loan scheme.

This included the disbursement of funds for book allowances, the guarantors for students who qualify for student loans and the changing of courses that may affect students eligibility for loans.
