Those who have done Foundation studies and want to get TELS to pay for their MBBS studies are not eligible as only those who have done Year 13 and qualify under the requirements can be assisted.
Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum made this clear after a parent asked a question in the budget consultation in Nadi whether his daughter who has done Foundation can qualify for TELS to fund her MBBS education.
The man said his daughter has scored A+ in all subjects and is in the MBBS program this year.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the current requirements are clear and the man’s daughter does not qualify. He also says they have to crunch the numbers for the next budget but he cannot say what will be in it.
The National Budget will be delivered on the 15th of next month.
