The Solomon Islands opposition leader has again called on the government to consider building a national university for the country.

The Solomon Times reports that Derek Sikua says there's potential to cut back on the cost for the government of having Solomon Islands students studying at the USP Solomon Islands Campus.

Dr Sikua says the University can firstly be established in Honiara and, satellite campuses added in all the provinces so people do not have to come to the capital.
