Fiji is an archipelago of about 300 islands (100 inhabited) and 540 islets, spread over three million sq km. It has a population of over 925,000 (World Bank, 2022).
COL’s current work in Fiji is primarily in the areas of skills for work, technology-enabled learning and is part of the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC) network. Fiji is also home to COL’s regional centre, the Pacific Centre for Flexible and Open Learning for Development (PACFOLD). Learners from Fiji are also participating in COL’s free, open online courses and benefitting from other available resources.
