Semester 1, 2018 applications for POLHN-sponsored courses are open from 1 November to 6 January.
From now until January, applications are open for students to undertake sponsored postgraduate health courses at Fiji National University (FNU). Every year, POLHN accepts around 100 students from the Pacific to complete these courses, which are fully funded and done online.
Sponsored courses are available in programs such as health service management, epidemiology and public health. With postgraduate diplomas, Masters degrees and postgraduate certificates all sponsored, there is something for everyone.
These FNU courses are tailored for health workers in the Pacific, and these accredited programs from FNU help develop and improve skills, while also fulfilling continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. Students can also do this through POLHN’s free online self-paced courses, which already have more than 30,000 enrolled students.
All sponsored FNU courses can be completed online on a computer or mobile device, over the internet. There are also a number of POLHN learning centres in hospitals all over the Pacific, so it’s very simple for health professionals to do their university work before or after a shift.
Sponsorship is available for any health worker from a Pacific Island country. They must have a Bachelor’s degree or diploma, and at least 5 years experience with their Ministry of Health. If accepted for sponsorship, POLHN will cover all the costs of their postgraduate course for that semester.
The semester 1, 2018 round of sponsorship applications is open from 1 November 2017 to 6 January 2018. For more information on how to apply, click here.
