ʻATENISI INSTITUTE

An institute for critical education in the South Pacific

A ʻAtenisi picture

ʻATENISI — THE LOGICAL NEXT STEP

Studies overseas have shown that, by age 50, liberal arts graduates begin to out-earn graduates in the technical disciplines. There now remain only two secular routes to the Bachelor of Arts degree here in Tonga – home-grown ‘Atenisi and the local centre of USP, whose flagship campus is in Fiji.

For over half a century, ‘Atenisi has offered students hands-on instruction by a resident international faculty which, in 2014, will comprise 4 PhDs, including authors of reputable academic books and articles. No wonder its degrees are received ad eundem by the University of Auckland … whilst the institute itself has been registered by TNQAB through mid-2015.

So choose your lecturers now … then be one of the first to apply for an array of Futa Helu Scholarships to finance your climb to the top beginning in 2014.

FUTA HELU’S DREAM KEEPS COMING TRUE

tnqab

For the 40th year, ‘Atenisi Institute continues to offer tertiary courses in social science, humanities, mathematics, science, and the arts … culminating in a B.A. or B.Sc. degree received ad eundem at the University of Auckland.

In 2014 the faculty will boast four PhD scholars, a celebrated vocalist and musician, plus an adjunct instructor from the Alliance Française. The institute’s alumni include Drs Robin Havea (sr lecturer mathematics, USP/Suva), Siosifa Ika (analyst, human services dept., Western Aus.), and ‘Opeti Taliai (dean & senior lecturer anthropology, ‘Atenisi) … and three government ministers, ‘Eiki Tu’i’āfitu (health), Dr Viliami Uasike Lātu (commerce), and Siosifa Tu’utafaiva (police).

The institute has been registered by TNQAB through mid–2015. And for the past year, its financial affairs have been managed by Mele Finau Tu’ilotolava, currently unconditionally licensed to practice law in both Tonga and New Zealand.
