EDUCATION and postgraduate studies are the most sought after programs at the University of the South Pacific's Lautoka campus.

And a brand new facility on Tavewa Avenue promises to cater for the growing demand from students and those in the workforce.

Campus director Dr Pramila Devi says the $6million project will not only be able to cater for the thousands that have enrolled and registered for study programs but also be able to meet the growing demand in the Western Division.

"The two-acre site is situated on Tavewa Ave behind the Commissioner Western's office," she said.

"We currently have 2000 registrations per semester and the new campus will be able to cater for that and also meet the growing demand for education in the west.

"The way we have designed the facility, it should be able to handle growth to 2025."
