For the first time in the history of Pacific Adventist University (PAU), the number of international students from Vanuatu has surpassed those from Solomon Islands.

The university, located in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, has welcomed 55 international students in 2023: 21 from Vanuatu, 19 from the Solomons, 8 from Kiribati, 5 from Fiji and 2 from Tonga. The increased intake from Vanuatu is thought to be due to government scholarship programs being more readily available in that country.

PAU is delighted to welcome back its international students, having suffered a significant decline in enrolments from outside PNG during the pandemic.
