The Samoan government controls all secondary schools where the medium is English again. It goes almost without saying that the few there are, are grouped in larger settlement areas, with children in outlying areas already forgotten.
There are several higher education institutions in Samoa, including the College of Tropical Agriculture and a Trades Training College.
The jewel in the tiny island nation’s crown though is the National University of Samoa established in 1984 to provide certificate, diploma and undergraduate degree programs, and also technical and vocational training.
Its faculties include Arts, Business & Entrepreneurship, Education, Nursing & Health Science, Science, Business & General Studies, Engineering, and Maritime Training. The complex is arranged around modern version of a fale, or traditional beach hut.
