Development and Implementation of DHERST Online Selection - An Effective Solution

The National Online Selection System (NOAS), led by the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST), reflects the nation's dedication to a transparent, efficient higher education system. 

Introduced in 2018, this system has changed the selection process, replacing the manual, time-consuming method with an electronic platform. 

The new system empowers students and streamlines administrative procedures, marking a significant shift towards a more accessible and modern approach to higher education selection.

DHERST Online Selection 2023 - 2024

Changes in Education Sector Demands Proactive Leadership

The PNG education sector is going through major changes in curriculum and structure. These changes affect educational outcomes. Since 2018, DHERST adopted an online application and selection system. This proactive move is invaluable. It ensures the selection process adapts to the evolving needs of the country's education system.

A cornerstone of the PNG Higher Education Selection System is its in-house online platform, fully controlled by DHERST officers. This localised solution, with its dedicated local URL, offers several advantages over outsourced alternatives. 

By maintaining control over the platform, DHERST ensures data security, privacy, and adherence to PNG's education policies. Moreover, the platform's robustness and sustainability have been demonstrated through its resilience in the face of external pressures, such as changes in leadership and increasing numbers of applicants.

Development and Implementation of DHERST Online Selection

The development and implementation of the PNG Higher Education Selection System underscore the visionary leadership of Professor Fr Jan Czuba, the Secretary of DHERST. 

Despite facing political challenges that led to his temporary removal from office, the system continued to function, albeit not as effectively as under his direct guidance. 

With his reinstatement following a lengthy court battle, Professor Czuba has reclaimed his position and is committed to continuing his dedication to serving the people of PNG through his role as DHERST Secretary.

NOAS is a Sustainable Online Platform

The PNG Higher Education Selection System stands as a testament to Professor Czuba's well-thought-out, planned, and executed vision. This transparent, effective, and efficient selection system has become an integral part of the PNG education landscape, empowering students and streamlining administrative processes. 

As the country continues to embrace technological advancements, the selection system is poised to evolve further, enhancing its ability to support PNG's aspirations for a world-class higher education system.
