3204 Students Selected to 6 Main PNG Universities - No Significant Increase in Spaces

The Grade 12 Online Selection 2018 (for tertiary institutions) in the country can be described as the best change the DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) has implemented. The result of the selection process had shown that the method was time-and-money saving, fast and efficient. 


Tables below contained raw data compiled from the 2018 selection document (PDF) published on DHERST website. The raw data simply aims to show readers and stakeholders the number of spaces (and the spaces available per program of study) at the 6 universities.

Perhaps it is important to know that no significant increase in number of spaces had been observed across the 6 main universities.

For example, previous records indicated 594 students in 2016, 495 students in 2017 and 599 students selected in 2018 to UNITECH Lae three Campus; and 286 students in 2016, 297 students in 2017 and 280 students in 2018 selected to Divine Word University four campus. In fact, spaces at universities remain  relatively the same. 

*Note that this is the online selection done by DHERST - not by the universities. Each selected student will be issued the offer letter and formally invited to the 2018 academic year at the selected university. 

**Also note that the figure 3204 does NOT include other tertiary institutions in the country. It is indicative of the 6 universities mentioned here.
