A memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between the Fiji National University (FNU) and the Canada Gate College has prepared numerous of students for the global market via requisite competencies in written and spoken English.
A total of 82 Korean students graduated from the international language and business communication at the FNU Namaka campus in Nadi last week. This brings to date a total of 235 graduates in this programme.
FNU’s National Training and Productivity Centre (NTPC) director, Kamlesh Prakash, said 130 of the students graduated in the English as a Second Language (ESL) programme with 105 in Business Communication, an impressive feat in a span of less than a year.
The MOU is aimed at preparing Korean students in the ESL and Business Communication to advanced proficiency in basic, intermediate and advanced levels of grasping these subject areas.
“The broad objective for this collaboration was to help prepare students for the global markets for suitable employment in the different countries throughout the world through requisite competencies in spoken and written English,” Mr Prakash said.
“Some of the graduates of the past batches’ are already back home enjoying reasonably good jobs and quite a number of them have also abroad to places like Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, and are employed in a range of diverse jobs.”
Mr Prakash also welcomed a batch of 20 students that arrived in Nadi last Friday from Korea to undertake the fifth segment of the ESL programme.
