Apply to Bulolo University College - Forestry: Non-School Leaver and Grade 12 School Leaver

Bulolo University College, formally the Bulolo Forestry College, is a campus of the PNG University of Technology. The institution offers programs under the Forestry Department. 

It caters to second and third-year forestry students, providing a Diploma in Forestry for those who don't meet the required grades after completing the third year. 

The college's location in Bulolo creates an ideal environment for forestry studies, fostering the personal development of students physically, spiritually, and mentally.

The Grade 12 School Leavers ONLINE Selection started in 2018. It is the best thing that happens. The online selection helps DHERST, the government and stakeholders know exactly how many Grade 12 students are selected for universities and colleges. 

In a recent media statement, DHERST resorted to also bringing the NON-SCHOOL LEAVERS Selection ONLINE. Universities and colleges are not going to make the selections. So, what does that mean for you as a non-school leaver applicant? Find out here

About Bulolo Forestry College

The Bulolo Forestry College, now known as Bulolo University College, was established in 1962 with the aim of training foresters for the forestry sector and other organisations in Papua New Guinea (PNG). 

In 1995, the college was amalgamated with the PNG University of Technology and became a campus of Unitech.

Over the years, Bulolo University College has played a significant role in producing human resources for the forestry sector, government departments, and industries in PNG.
