In an effort to make services accessible to prospective high school, working or interested students, The University of the South Pacific (USP) will open an Application Hub during this Friday’s (September 29, 2023) Open Day.
Known as the Vodafone USP Open Day, this will be the first time the University can avail such a service to thousands of prospective students during its Open Day to ensure efficient turnaround time once external examination results are released and assist those from remote areas.
The Application Hub, manned by well-informed Student Administrative Services (SAS) staff, is the last stop of the Open Day guided tour to allow students to seek expert academic assistance from staff and submit their application should they be interested in joining the University to pursue higher education.
SAS Group Manager Litia Konusi said those who submit an application at the Application Hub will later receive a provisional offer letter from the University.
“After a student applies, he/she will receive a provisional offer letter in the email listed in their application. The provisional offer letter means that the University has confirmed receiving your application and is waiting for the outcome of the student’s external examination.”
“Those whose external examination results meet the admission requirement for the programme they applied for will then receive an official confirmation offer letter from USP, notifying them that their application has been successful, and they have confirmed a placement with the institution.”
She emphasised that students who wish to submit an application need to bring a copy of their birth certificate, annual examination (for Years 11,12,13) and/or Year 12 external examination results (either soft or hard copy), and they can be assisted in registering on our eNrol Me application.
This year’s Vodafone USP Open Day is centred on the theme, ‘Our People, Our Stories’, focusing on our Pacific people (students, staff and alumni) and how their stories have influenced several generations after them, who studied at USP and are inspirational figures to our younger generation.”
USP Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Pal Ahluwalia said, “The Open Day is an essential event on the USP calendar as it is an opportunity for us as a university to engage directly with prospective students, provide them with information, clarity and guide them towards a career path of their choice that ensures personal growth and development, contributing to nation building.”
“Transformational changes are taking place in the global economy that are not only reshaping labour markets but making the employment market increasingly competitive. USP is just the place for you to upgrade skills and qualifications that respond to such changes. I encourage especially those who are in the workforce already to come down to our USP Open Day and explore a diverse range of options in becoming a part-time student with us.”
USP is ready to welcome over 100 schools that will be attending the Open Day across all its main Fiji Campuses on Friday.
