EMPLOYEES seeking to develop their skills in a bid to improve career prospects or move into another field of work are now able to do so.

The University of Fiji, with support from the Fiji Higher Education Commission, is developing doctorate scholarships.

Vice-chancellor Professor Richard Coll said the program would allow people in employment to continue working and study on a part-time basis.

"For example, if a teacher has designs on becoming a university lecturer but cannot afford to leave his or her teaching job then the doctorate scholarship would provide the perfect opportunity to improve skills and seek more attractive employment opportunities," he said.

Dr Coll said doctorate scholarships were available in accountancy, economics, management, mathematics and information technology for those interested in further education.
