DODL application form 2021

UoT/Unitech Non-school leavers & DODL selections

The grade 12 students and undergraduates selections fall into three main categories of applications: Grade 12 School Leavers, Matriculation/DODL, and Non-school leavers

The School Leavers are the Grade 12 students whose selection is done by DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) and passed onto UoT. 

The non-school leaver's applications are through UoT and done by the university. So, if you are a DODL, students you'll find it easy to apply given that there is a clear pathway to get into a first-year program. 

The Grade 12 school leavers (and non-school leavers) selections for UNITECH happens (around November) of each year based on the result of the Grade 12 national examinations (in October). 

DODL Matriculants Apply to UoT 

For the DODL students, apply to Unitech or other tertiary institution in the country before the due date. Usually, the Grade 12 students selection take precedence. (See the links for information about Unitech DODL).

PNG UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY has a limited number of spaces given the availability of learning spaces, boarding and lodging rooms, academic resources, etc. This means that the competition for admission to a program of study is usually very high.

Students aspiring to enter UNITECH through DODL must compete against the Grade 12 school leavers and non-school leavers in the country to secure a space. In order words, DODL students at UNITECH must perform exceptionally well in the national examinations to get a UNITECH placement.

Do prepare well, study hard and apply for further study.
