THE Taveuni campus of the Fiji National University is expected to begin programs two weeks from now.

Speaking at the Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting in Taveuni yesterday the university's representative Filimoni Saumaki told members of the council the piece of land where the campus was to be built on the island had been transferred to them last month.

Mr Saumaki said the piece of land was being cleared and it was envisaged the center would become operational in August.

"We envisage conducting a host of TVET programs out of Taveuni and these will include technical training courses, building, block laying, plastering, joinery, automotive mechanical engineering, welding, hospitality training and front office programs," he said.

"The Taveuni campus will provide the pathways to the students of the secondary schools in Taveuni to join the university and continue their studies in several areas. The Labasa campus's master planning is currently in progress and a site office and classrooms have been built so far."

Mr Saumaki said at present they had more than 800 students enrolled in the various programs.

"For the Savusavu campus we have held discussions with the Savusavu Town council and are in the final stages of selecting a site to host a FNU centre in the area.
