Semester 2 enrolment closes on 3 July.

The University of the South Pacific (USP) is now offering six new programmes as enrolment for the second semester of 2017 begins.

The Diploma of Library and Information Services (Level 5) will be a staircase from the existing Certificate IV in Library and Information Studies

The Diploma Pacific Vernacular Language (Cook Islands (CI) Māori) is proposed to revive the Cook Islands Māori language and develop Māori resources as requested by the Government of the Cook Islands. The programme targets qualified teachers who lack specialist training in teaching CI Māori and target CI residents in the first cohort and then Cook Islanders in NZ in the second cohort.

The Post Graduate Diploma in Cybersecurity will comprise of four (4) new courses (CS401, CS402, CS403 and CS404) and will be given five (5) years viability. The programme map has been aligned to the core body of knowledge required with the intention of accrediting the programme at a later time with the Australian Computing Science Society. Consultations have been completed with local stakeholders and cybersecurity experts in Australia.

The Certificate III in Resilience (Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction) will be delivered on a cohort basis by the Pacific Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development (PaCE-SD) and Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE). This programme is a staircase to the Certificate IV in Resilience (Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction) which is also a new programme.

The content of the Diploma of Early Childhood Education & Care (Level 5) programme is highly relevant to the needs of the Pacific region.

The semester two enrolment will close on 3 July 2017.
