2021 Acceptance Lists: Non School Leavers, School Leavers and Continuing Students

The table in this article is a checklist of the selection list PDF published by either the universities (non-school leavers' and continuing students lists) or by Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) for 2021 intakes of Grade 12 school leavers in the country.

Notes on 2021 Continuing Students TESAS Awards List, why many students names are not on the list published by DHERST.

The two groups of new intakes are the Grade 12 school leavers and non-school leavers, whereas the continuing students are students progressing to years 2, 3, 4 or have continued on from the other programs last year.

The universities also publish the list of post-graduate students on their websites around this time of the year. So be sure to check their websites if you have applied for a post-graduate study.

One important thing to check is the student's status on the selection/admission lists. We mention it because the status indicates whether you are on the govt scholarship (TESAS) or not. If you are indicated as SELF, you are either self-sponsored student, overseas-based student or corporate sponsored. You'll have to make the fee arrangements prior to registering at the university you are selected to attend.

This table gives the status update. We will continue to update this table as DHERST and the universities publish the 2021 selection list in PDF for download.

PNG Universities Selection Status Update

  • Divine Word University (DWU) is the first PNG university to release the 2021 continuing students list PDF. UoG was the first to release the non-school leavers' selection pdf list. The lists for continuing students and NSL are, usually, published by the universities, not DHERST. 
  • PAU released the 2021 school leavers and non-school leavers acceptance list.

Many universities will release the Continuing Students List in PDF before the New Students (Grade 12 School Leavers and Non-School Leavers) list for 2021.

From past experience, the next list to come out will be the Grade 12 selection list for the tertiary institution in the country. The list will be published by DHERST at its website. The DHERST selection list contains the names of new intake for the universities and non-universities. A comprehensive list.

The selection list for school leavers to university has not been released by DHERST yet, though they have promised to release it on the 8th of January 2021. Understandably, a public holiday was declared on this day, and we hope DHERST will let the public know about the change of date, soon.


Non-school leavers' selection list 2021

The non-school leavers' selection list is usually published last. If you are a non-school leaver applying to a tertiary institution for 2021 study, do not worry. The list will still come out. 

Perhaps it is important to know that the list will be published by the university of your choice, not DHERST. So you must check with the university!

The universities will publish the non-school leavers' selection list PDF before the academic year starts. One top tip is to check you preferred uni website for the last year's selection list of non-school leavers. This will give you a good idea about WHEN they are likely to release the 2021 selection list for the non-school leavers' intake. 

We are delighted to also know that for the first time this year, Western Pacific University in the highlands of PNG will enrol 240 students in the foundation year. 

The new Western Pacific University in Pangia, Southern Highlands Province, will do the first selection of school leavers this year, 2021. They will not have a batch of continuing students, but likely to have done the selection for both School Leavers and Non-school leavers selection for 2021. We will bring you the updates as they happen.

The new university offers programs in:
  • International Business Management (BA) - 6 Semesters  (3 years);
  • E-Business and Digital Marketing (BA) - 6 Semesters (3 years); and
  • Computer Science (Engineering, BA) - 7 Semesters (3 years).
