Dr Prasad highlights that this exchange program will provide students with valuable opportunities for academic and cultural enrichment through international exchange partnerships.

The senior lecturer of science says they have been collaborating with the University of Palermo and exploring partnerships.

Dr. Prasad adds that other Departments such as LLC will also benefit as the English Language requirement is a must for foreign exchange students.

The senior lecturer states this will boost UniFiji’s recognition in the local and international arena and help them in marketing their program.
