  1. I can’t use email with low network so, can I apply through hard copy? I am currently studying in USP.

  2. Let me know if anyone of TELS staff can clear me out about how they pay hostel fees.
    Eg : usp, because I really don’t know the entire process.

  3. CAN I APPLY FOR ONE MORE ALLOWANCE NOW SINCE IM NOT SATISFIED WITH THE CURRENT ALLOWANCE?

  4. I would like to know, why lawyer students doesn’t get topper scholarship. My mark was above 300 in year 13 but I am under TELS. And Will the TELS provides book allowance as well?

  5. I have done my high school in 2006 (FJC). Couldn’t continue my school later due to family problems. The course that I have taken needs Form 4 pass only therefore can I apply for my Education Loan from TELS?

  6. Jashwin Kaushal Raj

    In how many weeks will we get the allowance for TELS board for a first year student?

  7. I have applied for tels in 2015 and I was offered with a trade diploma program in accounting. But I want to change my program to higher education certificate in accounting. Will TLSB change it or I had to pursue with trade diploma program?

  8. I have completed my form 7 in 2015. Then just last year I did IT programming at USP. So how can I get the loan? Please I want to continue further my studies and get a job.

  9. I have already applied for NTS and TELS but the option I wrote at first was forestry and the program I want to do is bachelor in primary education. I wanted to ask that if I could change the program or not.

  10. I have left school a few months ago due to some family issues and I’m just wondering if I can be able to apply for TELS again. I really want to finish my studies but due to financial problems I cant afford it. Am I eligible to apply again for TELS? If I reapply the TELS form, I would like to know if I have to fill in the Secondary School Qualification area again.

  11. Ashneel Vishwar Deo

    I have been offered by TELS in 2015. So I left school and went for working. So after work I would like to do something new. Will I be allowed with TELS to get accommodation and my fees paid?

  12. I completed year 13 in 2015 but I haven’t piked up my original result. When I tried to get the result from M.O.E but it was closed. What should I do now because its closing date is 31st?

  13. When we call on the number no one picks up then whats the use of giving the number?

  14. If a student is currently under loan scheme and he/she has good grades and wants to change to toppers scheme, can this be possible?

  15. My mark is exactly 250. So do I qualify for a degree programe because I want to do a degree?

  16. I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN LOAN BUT YOU WANT TO UPGRADE YOUR QUALIFICATION IN DEGREE IS IT POSSIBLE? OR IS IT THAT WE HAVE TO PAY OUR LOAN FIRST?

    1. What is the reason of having a contact number 3301684/ 3301143 provided when nobody answers the call while the public calls.
      Its pure Bullshit and irresponsible for the relevant Dept./ person who handles the call queues. Come on you’re a Gov. Entity at least have the Courtesy to have the willingness to pick up the phone. If the number is not working, then please remove it from your website.

  17. I don’t what I am missing. I still can’t login with the credentials given.
    Aboutt the password, should we include the semicolon and the braces or not?
    And also the username, should we include “tslb” too with the numbers?
    I don’t know if it is just me entering the credentials wrongly or is there something wrong with the given credentials or maybe there is just something wrong with the web programming?
    So I’m requesting if I could have a different login credentials, one that would work , please .

  18. What is an invoice?

  19. In the NTS online form it says to attach an invoice. What is an invoice?

  20. Soon as the results are out,I would be applying for ‘tels’ so at the moment I don’t have any idea about the bond signing issue. Because I was informed that parents are not allowed to sign the bond now. So the main confusion is that can the person who signs the bond leave Fiji during the period of my studies?

  21. I would like to know when application will be opened for 2017.

  22. Can anyone send me the email address of the person who is in charge of the allowance?

  23. I want to know why TELS does not provide scholarship for students who want to study in Samoa Apia or overseas. They don’t have chart toppers GPA as the university just requires a pass in particular unit from foundation.

  24. I applied for overseas scholarship but I was denied because they said that “not under fiji priority area”. My marks were good enough.

    1. What course did you apply for? I hope it wasn’t a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering.

  25. I’m currently a student at a flying school and I couldn’t apply for (TELS) last year (2015) because I wasn’t a Fiji Citizen, but now since I have received my citizenship. Can the Student Loan Scheme still pay for my fees?

  26. Saneel Sailesh Kumar

    I just wanted to know by when will I receive my allowance for food bus fare and rent?

    Fiji National University
    Samabula campus.

  32. Can TELS Board pay 4 summer classes in USP for English compulsory Units?
    I need a quick response.
    Thank You.

  33. Wy can’t year 12 students also be part of applying form for tslb as some are ambitious towards their future goals without doing form 7?

  34. Why does TSLB require individuals to fill an online application form when their web page is never updated nor do the staff. Reply immediately to inquire by students applying for a scholarship!
    Customer Service staff need to do refresher courses pur-lease! It is long overdue!

  35. I am currently in my first year of study at USP under the National Toppers Scholarship Scheme.
    I am really happy with the allowances in Semester II 2016 as it has been divided into 2. I only hope that it be given monthly or fortnightly as we are still youths and are not very handy in Financial Management.

  36. When will the fee be paid for Us? Tomorrow is the deadline and my registration will be suspended. Why is it taking so long? This is really bad.

  37. NEED TO CHANGE THE STAFF WORKING HERE. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF INDIAN-ORIGIN, SO RUDE WHEN WE CALL AND SO UNPROFESSIONAL. PLEASE REMOVE THEM!!! (OR THIS WILL CONTINUE TO BE AN ISSUE). ALWAYS SAYING TO CALL BACK. I ALMOST WASTED $15 CALLING THE MAIN OFFICE. IS THE LOAN SCHEME A CHARITY OR IS IT A CONTRACT BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS AND THE GOVERNMENT? BECAUSE THEIR RESPONSES MAKES US AS IF WE ARE BEGGARS AND WE ARE CALLING TO BEG FOR MONEY. THESE TYPE OF PEOPLE DO NOT CARE MUCH FOR THE WORK THAT THEY ARE DOING OR THE PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE SERVING. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THEIR PAY!! (REMOVE THEM)!!! PLEASE….

  38. What are the requirements for traveling out of country as I am on loan scheme?

  39. I hope that you will perhaps grant me a scholarship. I finished high school in the year 2007 And just because of financial problems I couldn’t pursue onwards. If there is any chance that you could help me I would Really appreciate it I am service provider as in tile layer.

  40. I just want to know when will my allowance be given its being a long time?

  41. Any idea of the Indonesian scholarship? I want to do my post graduate studies in Indonesia and I need counseling from any scholarship officers.
    Is there any form available?

  42. I am doing my practicum now and my accommodation and school fees are still not paid yet. But I had given all paper works to the TELS office before I came. Can I have any information on why is it like this?

  43. If a student is on Academic suspension for one semester, so for the next semester does the student have to apply for TELS again or will that student be under tels since the student was on tels from the beginning.

  44. Samisoni Saravere Cabealawa

    Me as a student at fnu samabula campus, applied for the TELS form in the beginning of trimester 1st (January) and still I haven’t received my confirmation letter.

  45. Can I have the email address of of a person in charge of the accommodation please?

  46. I am really keen to apply for the loan scheme
    Can anyone tell me where can I get the forms and when can I apply?

  47. I had applied for this loan scheme last year as I enrolled into Fulton College and later my application was rejected just after I had completed my final exams for semester 1. I was told that this scheme was only given to those who had completed their education from 2011 to 2013. A different explanation was given to me during their road show here in Lautoka where I clearly explained to them that I had left school for ten years and that I want to pursue my studies given this opportunity. I was clearly told that there was no barrier to this scheme since the government of the day wanted everybody to get educated. I managed to complete semester 1 with Fulton College and couldn’t get into second semester due to the loan being rejected and that I couldn’t afford to pay privately. My question is:
    1.Am I eligible to apply for a loan scheme this year and get started next semester with FULTON College?
    2.If yes, are the forms available from the Ministry of Education here in Lautoka for the next semester(beginning end of July)?

    I am really keen to go back to school but financial problems are holding me back and I beg if the government of the day could help me to get back to school this second semester.

  48. I WOULD LIKE TO APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP TO DO A COURSE IN CUBA. I NEED AN APPLICATION FORM. PLEASE WOULD YOU ASSIST ME.

  49. I have completed form 6 in year 2012 then I did vocational for 2 years. I have finished till stage 3 and now I am in fnu and doing applied computing. So how can i get the loan where should i apply? I already applied in tels but no reply nothing from them. Please I want to study but due to financial problem I cant afford to pay the fees
