Michelle Muavesi graduated in Professional Diploma in Business Management graduated from the Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE).

For 43 year old Michelle Muavesi coming back to further her studies at University after 20 years was a tough decision to make, however it proved to be one of the best decisions she had made after she graduated in Professional Diploma in Business Management.

The mother of four, Muavesi graduated from the Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE), at The University of the South Pacific (USP) graduation ceremony on 21 March 2019 at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva.

“At first it was bit challenging for me but the lecturers, facilitators and coordinators at Pacific TAFE made life easy,” she said. “The lecturers at Pacific TAFE were so accommodative and understanding of our age group and everything was just made so conducive.”

She said the workforce and labor demand required her to upskill her qualification and knowledge, which was one of the main reasons she decided to further her academic journey.

“At the moment I work in a school – I am a school administrator, and the work that I do is continuously evolving therefore I needed to get a formal education and have an opportunity to further grow in my career,” Muavesi said.

“I had an amazing experience at Pacific TAFE; I would say it is the best academic institution if you are thinking of going back to school after a lengthy break. They identify and understand students need and place them as their priority to be able to deliver a programme that suits your needs,” she added.
