The Israeli Ambassador to Vanuatu, Tibor Shalev Schlosser, said the 10 students will study agribusiness, animal science and plant science.

The students will be required to spend two days in the classroom and then three days on the farm, where they will be paid a seasonal workers wage.

In the new partnership agreement, the Vanuatu government will pay the students' airfare to Israel while Israel will cover the cost of the return flight, after one year away.
