Desire to study

Shayal Devi
Monday, June 30, 2014

AFTER completing his studies in Australia a few years ago, Adarsh Kumar got a job as a programer at the Fiji Sugar Corporation.

But he always had a desire to further his studies in information technology.

On Friday, he was one of five selected by the University of Fiji to pursue further studies and research opportunities through the vice-chancellor's doctorate scholarship.

"I think this will benefit my career in many ways," he said adding that he had been keeping a tab on the university's new programs and fellowships.

"I applied because I wanted to come back and finish my studies. I am privileged to be given the chance to go further into research."

Similarly, education officer Dhirendra Prasad commended the program saying it provided an avenue for employed people to pursue further studies.

"There is a need for research in various facets of education," he said.

The scholarships were implemented through grants provided by the Fiji Higher Education Commission.
