Quality is what King's International University stands for and is committed to, be it in any field. By providing Quality education, we ensure human right and a public good. In the words of the Delors Commission (UNESCO, 1996): “Education is at the heart of both personal and community development; its mission is to enable each of us, without exception, to develop all our talents to the full and to realise our creative potential, including responsibility for our own lives and achievement of our personal aims.”
Quality education at an affordable price is what the King's International University stands for. We recognise the challenges that face parents and the youth and how it is mostly the fee factor that determines where the career dreams end without even starting out.
Mission of Empowerment
Tonga needs, well-integrated, efficient and comprehensive formal, non-formal and informal systems of education.
This university has been set up with an aim to be of service to the public, to promote merit and end distinctions of class and creed, to recognise diverse lives and how to be a motivating and empowering agent for everyone. King's International University promotes public discourse and educates leaders-to-be who will take up public office, but it also encourages women and particularly the marginalized.
