Fiji, an island nation located in the South Pacific has three major higher education institutions namely, “The Fiji National University, The University of the South Pacific which is also ‘the oldest university’ in the country and The University of Fiji”. This paper reviews key emerging issues that are being encountered in higher education (HE) in Fiji. The key issues’ faced by these universities, is showing a similar trend in higher education internationally which this paper examines. Plagiarism continues to be a global phenomenon which the literature objectively highlights along with problems arising due to heavy workload and negligence of not incorporating inclusive education. The paper explores possible solutions to these issues drawing evidence from the available literature. Further research on individual universities would provide greater data for analysis as well as broader solutions to the issues.
