THE University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Solomon Islands Campus is organising a three-day roadshow in Honiara to help students and school leavers who want to study at the university.
The roadshow kicked off yesterday beside the Honiara City Council Office and attracted lots of interested candidates who collected application forms and other important documents about the university.
Speaking to the media, Acting Director of USP Solomon Islands Campus Mrs Patricia Rodie said the roadshow is part of USP Solomon Islands Campus’s programme to provide information about the different courses and programmes the university is offering in the country.
She adds that the roadshow is aimed at providing greater opportunity for the general public to access the needed information before applying to study at the university.
Rodie said USP staffs are present at the roadshow to assist students who are not sure how to fill the forms.
“USP has hosted a similar road show on December last year and now we are hosting this programme again in preparation of our registration in the coming weeks.
“Our goal is to provide an opportunity for the public especially students to access the information and also can apply on the sport with the assistance of USP staffs.
“We want to bring our office closer to the people instead of sitting in our offices and rely on the internet or hand deliver applications,” she explained.
Rodie also said that the road show provides an avenue for the University to promote some of its new and also ongoing programmes.
