Great news as the University of Fiji’s Department of Science has received a grant under the ERASMUS+ programme for students and staff exchange beginning from 2024 to 2026 with the University of Palermo in Italy.

The University says under this exchange programme, students enrolled in the Bachelor of Agricultural Engineering Programme and the Bachelor of Environmental Science Programme will get an opportunity to study at the University of Palermo for one semester.

Senior Lecturer at the Department of Science, Dr. Ramendra Prasad says the students need to apply as limited opportunities are available.

Dr Prasad says the Outbound/Inbound Exchange Program at the University of Fiji will provide students with valuable opportunities for academic and cultural enrichment through international exchange partnerships.

He says they have been collaborating with colleagues from the University of Palermo and exploring means of collaboration and partnership.

He adds the student exchange was one of the areas which they explored. Dr. Prasad says other Departments, such as LLC, will also benefit as the English Language requirement is a must for foreign exchange students.

He adds that this will boost UniFiji’s recognition in the local and international arena and also help in the marketing and promotion of the University.
