    Abstract

    A student encounters a number of problems and challenges while managing life as a first year student in higher education institutions. First year student’s require special guidance and support from the university system so that they are able to effectively adjust to the changes in their education and personal life that they will be facing as university students. Against this backdrop, the main purpose of this paper is to examine the benefits of the First Year Experience Programme to the first year distance and flexible learning students at the University of the South Pacific. This study has implications for the policy makers who make policies for higher education governance in the Pacific Island countries and around the globe.
