Enhancing skills and pursuing quality education abroad opens doors for extensive personal and professional growth.

This was highlighted by President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere during the StudyHut consultancy office opening at the Vodafone Arena in Suva where he stated that when students study in foreign countries, they are exposed to diverse cultures, languages and perspectives.

Ratu Wiliame says international educational institutions often have state-of-the-art research facilities and cutting-edge technology, enabling students to gain hands-on experience that may not be readily available locally or in the Pacific.

The President says twenty years ago acquiring new skills and pursuing educational opportunities abroad required a lot of effort, however, nowadays it has been made accessible for all that are interested.

He says it is essential to continuously enhance our knowledge and capabilities to remain competitive, have the potential for higher income, and be competent in the ever-evolving job market.

Ratu Wiliame says scholarships, grants, and other financial aid options exist abroad to help ease the burden of costs, students are encouraged to proactively seek out these opportunities from local organizations and institutions that can assist in funding students from Fiji who wish to study abroad such as Studyhut Fiji.

The President further says the onus is on the individual to seize these opportunities and invest in their future.

Meanwhile, StudyHut Co-Founder and Director Kunal Raj says the main aim of StudyHut is to provide guidance and the right pathway to students for a better future.

He says students can visit their office at Damodar City to get guidance and support from the consultants on how to apply with their basic requirements like birth certificate, results, and CV to get a chance to study any program at any of the universities in Australia.
