The University of the South Pacific (USP) provided a perfect base for studying political science, as Suva is a hotspot for Pacific politics and development. My lecturers were from within the region and all over the world, so my education was diverse and delivered by experts in the field.
The local Fijian and regional students were lots of fun and a lively bunch.
I can’t recommend enough spending time getting to know people in your class and those who live in your dorms – they’ll become awesome friends.
The international students that you’ll be hanging out with will also be a group you become close to during your time here. Between sitting in the beautiful USP campus studying (it's like a nature park) and hanging out at coffee shops with friends, you get to spend a good amount of time exploring the local islands, rainforests (lots of waterfalls) and backpacker resorts, meeting heaps of interesting folk.
