The Fiji National University could soon make it-Taukei, Hindi or Urdu courses compulsory before students are able to graduate.
FNU’s Dean of Education and Humanities, Dr Eci Nabalarua says this is part of their effort to reach the goals of the People’s Charter for Change and Development.
Nabalarua says to make sure multicultural ideals are put into effect at the university, all graduates at FNU could be asked to take one of the beginner level courses in either i-Taukei, Hindi or Urdu.
This would at any time during the programme of study and to be completed before the students graduate and will be non-examinable.
Last year, FNU made it compulsory for all teacher trainees to be fluent in either three languages and unless they are, they would not receive a graduation certificate.
