USP new campus to offer public health


The newly built University of the South Pacific (USP) Solomon Islands Campus will be the institution’s Public Health school.

USP-SI Campus Director, Dr Billy Fito’o told the media during a recent tour of the new USP Campus in East Honiara.

“USP currently does not have a Public Health school so once we have this completed, this school will accommodate all students around the region wishing to the pursue the program” Dr Fito’o said.

Dr Fito’o clarified that apart from it being a public health school, the institution will continue to offer all its normal programs.

He explained that since there would be students from other pacific Islands countries coming to pursue the Public Health program, the institution still has a bigger task in hand and that is to provide accommodation.

He assured that USP is aware of this and is looking to build accommodations which he stated that if it goes according to plan, it will be phase three of the current project.  

So far, the project which is nearing the completion of phase 1 includes three buildings.

Project Contractor, China Harbour Engineering and Project consultant, Kramer Ausenco assured that the complex is built with quality and fitted with the latest tech, all tailored to suit Solomon Islands’ geographical and cultural feature.
