UPNG Non-school leavers and school leavers acceptance 2021

The information presented below is a compilation of news and instructions on the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) website. The information is for non-school leavers who are applying (planning to apply) through the university. And, also for the school leavers who are applying through the DHERST online platform. 


Important note

You are a non-school leaver and applied through the university of your choice. The uni will inform you if you are accepted into their program. For example, if you submitted a UPNG non-school leaver application for 2021, you'll hear directly from UPNG - not from DHERST.

The process is that the university will directly inform you via a letter or through publication on the media (using the social or mainstream medium). Then, you must accept the Offer Letter and let the uni know about your intention to take up the offer.

Non-school leavers and school leavers acceptance 2021

The University of Papua New Guinea offers Diploma, Bachelor, Bachelor (Professional), Bachelor (Honours), Post-Graduate Diploma, Master, PhD and D.B.A. programs.

The University selects among the School leavers (Grade-12 passed-outs seeking admission in the next immediate year) and Non-School levers (Grade-12 passed-outs, other than school-leavers) for admission into its Diploma, Bachelor and Bachelor (Professional) programs.

Non-school leavers acceptance

Due to limited space and resources, the University can only admit a limited number of new students into various programmes of study. 

As a result, competition is very high and priority is given to those with higher GPAs. Those seeking enrolment must satisfy the UPNG admission requirement.

School Leavers acceptance

School levers are selected based on their options provided through the Department of Higher Education and Non-School Levers are selected based on their application in response to the University’s advertisement every year. 

UPNG postgraduate programs

The University advertises for postgraduate programs such as Bachelor (Honours), Post-Graduate Diploma, Master, PhD and D.B.A. programs. Candidates with a good Bachelor degree are eligible to apply for Bachelor (Honours), Post-Graduate Diploma and Master programs. 

Candidates with a good Master degree are eligible to apply for the PhD program and D.B.A. program. The University selects the candidates for these programs from among those who apply against its advertisement every year.

Acceptance letters

The University sends offer/acceptance letters to all candidates selected for various programs in addition to advertising the names of selected candidates for various programs in the prominent newspapers in the Country. 

The candidates who accept the offer letters are requested to pay the relevant yearly fee in full and register themselves for the program for which they are accepted usually in February of the year concerned. 

The process of admission ends with the registration of the students for the program for which they are accepted.
