The islands have a rich culture including strong communities, musical traditions, and cuisine.

The scenery of Fiji is a huge drawn to both tourists and students: its beautiful beaches and tropical jungle make it a paradise. The location lends itself to many activities such as hiking, and water sports.

What's it like to study in Fiji

Very friendly locals and a lot of tropical food that I enjoy. The traveling links are very well structured. Everything here runs on a system. Nothing unexpected for me personally.

What's it like to study in Fiji

I have been studying in Fiji since secondary level. That being said, it is definitely one of the friendliest places I have ever been to. I have been studying away from my parents for quite a while, and people have accepted me not as a foreigner, but as one of their own. Traveling to Fiji is not always convenient, due to its distance, but I believe there are many options available to get to it. Also, places you can go during your holidays are amazing - you can truly see the island life here.
