The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Faculty of Arts, Law and Education (FALE) has placed an emphasis on quality education, relevance and Pacific consciousness from 2019-2024.

These were the words of Dr. Akanisi Kedrayate, Dean FALE, while visiting USP’s Labasa Campus and Savusavu Centre at a roundtable discussion with postgraduate students from 28-29 August, 2018.

“FALE is aiming to provide the best for our students, we are aiming for quality and in doing so, our students will be able to get as much assistance as possible,” she advised.

“Students who are doing well with high GPA’s at regional levels must be identified and given the opportunity to continue to excel,” she added.

Most of the issues raised by the students had to do with the lack of supervisory roles for Masters and Research students including delayed responses from lecturers.

The Dean reassured the students that the issues will be looked into and also reminded them of the fact that they can be supported through student learning specialists, teaching assistants and campus staff to allow them a better chance of completing their programmes.

Dr Kedrayate also advised the students on course programmes, research skills, FALE Strategic Plan, developing soft skills in students and the hopes of the Faculty in ensuring that the students are prepared well for marketability at the end of their programmes.

The session was fruitful and both staff and students were assured that FALE will always be ready to assist students at the regional campuses. Most of the students said they felt empowered following the session with Dr Kedrayate.

The Dean also sat with campus staff to hear about issues concerning FALE courses and services at the Labasa Campus and the Savusavu Centre.
