Number of schools participating in the first zoom session for the day.

The start of Day 4 of USP’s Online Open Day saw a record number of schools participating in the first zoom session for the day.  15 schools logged into the first session at 8.30am with over 1500 students participating.  The session ran over 2 hours.  Representatives from Faculties and support services said it was a very busy but highly engaging session with a warm and friendly environment.  You could see a lot of excitement on the students’ faces in being able to interact with staff of USP from the comfort of their schools and with their teachers.
 
Twenty-two schools participated in the zoom sessions throughout the day with various schools attending multiple sessions.  There were schools from Suva, Rakiraki, Ba, Nausori, Nakasi, Labasa, Navua, Lautoka, Tavua and Seaqaqa in Fiji and from Niue and Vanuatu.
 
Staff from different Faculties and Schools, Pacific TAFE and PaCESD engaged with the students to advise them on the programmes and courses offered by the University.
 
Other support sections were also at hand to answer questions relating to student support services ranging from application process to accommodation, fees, scholarships, library services or life generally as a University student.
