The department of higher education, DHERST, had appealed to the 'institutions who do not submit the list of continuing students to the department are advised to do so before the end of January 2020'. [Press Release, 03/01/2020]

What does TESAS mean?

TESAS stands for Tertiary Education Students Assistance Scheme. There are two categories of TESAS. See this post for more info on TESAS

Perhaps it is important that new and continuing students at all the tertiary institutions inPNG are up-to-date the changes that are happening at present. Especially, the changes to TESAS and the introduction of the HELP student loan scheme.

One suggestion is to check the latest updates on the HELP scheme at DHERST website. The department has some updates on the changes in higher education tuition and the purported 2020 student loan scheme. Here is an online news article by NBC News (Reposted) - READ MORE. Some key points are listed in bullet points below.

Why goroka technical college & university of Goroka continuing students lists is delay for dhrest 2020.

Admin said...

Well, that's a question that the institution co concerned should answer.

DHERST finalizes the lists submitted to them based on the stds performances. It's a collaborative work that starts with the institutions.

If they do not submit the list on time, dherst has to wait.
