The Law School welcomes students from beyond the region of the University member states especially for post-graduate study, on either the taught Master's degree or the thesis based LLM. Doctoral research students are also welcome.
International students will find a warm and friendly welcome for them herein Vanuatu. The campus is small by international standards and most of the students on it are studying law. However there are also other disciplines offered on the campus, notably early childhood education and Pacific linguistics. The campus is also home to the Vanuatu Centre for extension studies where a complete range of courses - mostly at undergraduate and pre-degree level are offered. Most students live on campus and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.
Studying in Vanuatu offers the international student a unique opportunity to experience at first hand not only the culture and tradition of Vanuatu but also those of wider region as the student body is drawn from over twelve Pacific island countries. The composition of staff is international, being drawn at present from Australia, New Zealand, Africa, France, Papua New Guinea, United Kingdom, Burma and Vanuatu.
Although Vanuatu is a small and fairly undeveloped pacific island country, the campus is well equipped with IT facilities and home to a very well equipped library. Electronic links are available to legal data bases of the major legal systems of the world and a number of other libraries globally. Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, is very small by international standards but most consumer goods are available although the range of choice is limited. There are some night clubs but very little in the way of theatre or cinema. Material wealth and consumerism is beginning but is not as developed here as in other parts of the world.
If you are looking for the pleasures and pursuits of a large cosmopolitan city then Port Vila may not be the place for you. If however you are interested in studying in a different cultural environment and are interested in learning more about the pacific, its people and their way of life, then come to Vanuatu. The size of classes is small, especially at post-graduate level, the lecturers very approachable, the campus ambiance very positive and friendly and the experience one that you are unlikely to encounter anywhere else in the world.
