It has a total land area of 811 km2 and a population of around 118,000 people. The capital of Kiribati is South Tarawa and the official language is English although I-Kiribati (Gilbertese) is also widely spoken throughout the country. The geography of Kiribati consists mostly of low-lying coral atolls and islands with its highest point being 81 meters above sea level. The islands are surrounded by rich marine life with beautiful coral reefs and abundant fish species making it a popular destination for scuba diving and fishing. There are also several lagoons on the islands which provide shelter for migratory birds, as well as providing agricultural opportunities such as coconuts, taro, breadfruit, pandanus fruits and fish. Education in Kiribati is compulsory from ages 6 – 14 years old with primary school followed by secondary school from ages 15 – 18 years old. Students can then pursue higher education at universities located primarily in major cities such as South Tarawa where they can study a wide range of disciplines including business administration, engineering and agriculture among others. Furthermore, there are several scholarship programs available to help students from low-income backgrounds attend university at no cost or reduced cost tuition fees. Additionally, technical training centers have been established throughout much of the country to provide alternative educational opportunities to those who may not be able to attend university due to financial or geographical constraints.
