2023 Acceptance List for PNG Universities and Colleges

Our readers have asked about the 2023 Acceptance List for PNG Universities, especially the PDF lists for Non-school Leavers, School Leavers and Continuing Students. In this article, we provide brief responses to some of the frequently asked questions. The responses will give you an idea about what to expect between now and early February 2023. 

So, read on and be ready as a non-school leaver, school leaver or continuing student.  

Also, check out the RECOMMENDED BLUE LINKS in this article. They give in-depth details to the pressing questions many students and parents are asking at present.

IMPORTANT: The 2023 Acceptance Lists for all the Tertiary Institutions will FIRST appear on the university's website or in the newspapers before they are shared through the social media channels and other websites. Be reminded that it is important to check the non-school leavers, school leavers and continuing students' acceptance list from the university's website or in the newspapers.

Non-school Leavers Acceptance List

The 2023 non-school leavers' acceptance list contains the names of students who are NOT the 2021 Grade 12 students. This list also includes foreign students and PNG students who apply from the US, NZ, Australia, Singapore or other overseas schools.

The NSL list is usually published by the university of your choice, not DHERST. That means that the universities (that you applied to) will publish the non-school leavers' selection list PDF before the academic year starts. So you must check with the university!

One top tip is to check your preferred uni website for the past year's NSL selection lists if it is still up on their website. The publication date will give you a good idea about WHEN they are likely to release the 2023 selection list for the non-school leavers' intake. 

Alternatively, PNG Insight keeps a checklist to help you follow up. You can check IF your university's Non-school Leavers Acceptance List is out.

2023 Continuing Students Acceptance List

If you are a continuing student, your university will put out the continuing students' acceptance lists at the end of the academic year or over the 2022/2023 Christmas holiday. It is your responsibility to find out your GPA and possible TESAS Status for the academic year 2023.

The best thing to do is to contact the Student Admin or the university or college Registrar and find out if they've released the Continuing Students Acceptance List. And importantly, check to see that your name is on the list. 

The University of Goroka (UoG) did well last year by informing its continuing students about their status before they went home for the Christmas holiday. We hope UoG does the same this year because it helps massively with the registration and orientation of its NEW students.

In fact, the other universities and colleges in PNG should do the same by informing the Continuing Students to avoid the long queues and unnecessary delays during the registration week.

2023 School Leavers Selections Lists - DHERST

The Grade 12 School Leavers Selections is solely done by DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) through its National Online Application System (NOAS) and National  Online Selection System (NOSS).

If you are a 2021 Grade 12 student, your selections and the announcement of your TESAS status will be formally done by DHERST. 

When are PNG Universities and Colleges Acceptance List PDF coming out?

By now the Grade 12 Schools Leavers should know whether they are selected to a University or College, or not. 

In fact, the higher education department launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2021. 

But the non-school leavers and continuing students will have to wait until ALL the names (quotas from each university and college) have been confirmed, compiled and released to the general public. 

Only then, the students should be able to know their confirmed SELECTION STATUS, as well as their final TESAS STATUS.

Here is a detailed article about when DHERST is likely to release the Acceptance List for PNG Universities and Colleges

Check out this video info we provided last year - it is still relevant to this year's selections and release of the Acceptance List PDF

Are you on TESAS?

DHERST used different statuses to indicate the TESAS Awards for selected students. 

The awards are based on the PNG govt’s yearly sponsorship for students under the AES and HECAS categories, excluding the self-sponsored or corporate and overseas govt sponsored students. 

Read this article for the meaning of the acronyms (TESAS, AES & HECAS) and what they mean.

So how will the NSLs, Grade 12 SLs and Continuing Students know if you are on TESAS or not? You can CONFIRM your scholarship status (whether you are on TESAS or self-sponsored) through the final (official) Acceptance List released by DHERST.

What to do as a Self-sponsored student?

Perhaps the important thing is to confirm your PNG GOVT SCHOLARSHIP (TESAS) status on the 2023 Tertiary Institution's Acceptance List

As the name implies, if you are a self-sponsored student you'll have to pay your own fees before the registration and orientation. 

If you do not pay the required fees, your place will be forfeited - another student in the admission pool who has the money will take your place.

Check with your university or college to confirm how much you MUST pay to register. In addition, this information will be contained in the Acceptance Letter your institution sends to you. Make sure you read and understand what you must do before admission.

The best tip is to pay only the required amount, register and apply for the PNG govt's HELP program - read how to apply below.

Secure HELP - PNG Govt Scholarship

DHERST will facilitate the Student Loan Scheme (HELP or Higher Education Loan Program). 

If you are a self-sponsored student, you'll have to pay your fee for the first semester of 2023 and apply for the HELP loan.

The Continuing students and School Leavers can apply for the HELP loan program through their university or college. This also includes those who are doing their masters or doctorate studies. 

Check with your institution and ask for a HELP student loan application form. Also, find out about the due date and what to do so that your application is successful.

What to do if you are on DHERST's Admission Pool?

If you are a student on DHERST's admission pool, you'll have to log in to your National Online Selection Account between now and before the academic year 2023 starts to see if you have been offered a placement at a university or college in PNG.

The 2021/2022 selection had 
  • 31, 817 students were nominated to sit the exams; 
  • 26,544 students certified; 
  • 16,171 total HEI quota for 2021; and
  • 10,373 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies.
The good news is that there are 6,319 spaces (formally called quotas) to be filled via the Admission Pool. 

So, keep checking to see if you are one of the lucky ones from the admission pool admitted to a university or college.

When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selection Lists for HEIs?

The higher education department (DHERST) launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2021. So what does the launching mean; and when will DHERST publish the 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for the tertiary institutions in the country?

Here are 5 points that students, parents and guardians should know as they check their names on National Online Selection System (NOAS).

 5 preparation tips for students | 2022 HEI registration and orientation

Students to check their selection status (1)

Students can view their selection STATUS through their individual National Online Application Accounts. That means that the 2021 Grade 12 students should use their NOAS login details to access their accounts and confirm their selection status for 2022.

By now you (Grade 12 student) should know if you have secured a tertiary institution placement, or not. 

In fact, this is the final outcome of your School Leaver's Choice on the National Online Application System. 

The selection status on DHERST National Online Selection System is 'provisional' only. That means two things: 

  • first, the HEI will send you an offer letter, also called the acceptance letter, to confirm your placement with the institution; and
  • second, DHERST will formally publish your name on the 2022 Grade 12 selection list PDF on its website.

What should you do if you are selected? (2)

Congratulations if you are selected to continue to a tertiary institution in 2022. There are several things that you should find out. 
  • Are you on TESAS (AES, HECAS)?
  • Will you be a SELF-SPONSORED student?
  • When are you likely to see your name on the 2022 DHERST selection list?
  • When is the 2022 REGISTRATION and ORIENTATION WEEK?
  • Should you inform your institution that you've accepted that offer?
At least, try to find out the answer to the 5 questions as you prepare to go to your new school. 

Here is an article that can help you prepare for the registration and orientation week. It gives details to documents you need to present at registration, fees and what to do to get yourself prepared for the new academic year.

DHERST new Grade 12 data (3)

Note that there are ONLY 16,171 spaces available at the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Papua New Guinea according to DHERST's new data

For the 2022 Academic Year, there were 

  • 31, 817 students nominated to sit the exams; 
  • 26,544 students certified;
  • 16,171 total HEI quota ; 
  • 10,373 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies.

Many Grade 12 students, like in the past years, will not get an HEI placement though they may have really good grades.

If you have secured a placement, you should be proud of yourself!

Important Announcement from DHERST 2022 (4)

DHERST and HEIs will use Grade 12 students' data in the National Online Application System (NOAS) to confirm their selections. Here is what DHERST has to say:
  • Your (Grade 12 Students) data from the MyNOAS data field has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution that selected you.  The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you about the specific details of the institution, including how to accept your offer. 
  • Note that the response contained therein (in the NOSS) is not an admission confirmation. You should expect to receive official notice through an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI).
Over 10,370 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies. If you feel that you have made the Grade, but missed out, here is a story that will inspire you. 

Read about Sharlyne's story. She completed Grade 12 at Marianville Secondary School. Her Grade Point Average (GPA) was above the cut-off mark for entry into UPNG, but she missed out on the selection.

When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for HEIs?


DHERST announced that it would publish the Grade 12 selection List for 2021 on the 8th of January 2021.

The higher education department has not given a definite date for 2022, yet. The info that went out to students via the MYNOAS has the date for last year's selection.

Meanwhile, we think that DHERST will do the same this year, publish the final 2022 selection list EARLY IN JANUARY 2022. Just to be sure, please check in to your MyNOAS for the latest news and updates from DHERST

This is the final list that will confirm your selection to an HEI for 2022.

Continuing Students Selection List for HEIs Released

The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) announced the approved list of Continuing Students on TESAS today, 26th January 2021. The list contains the names and PNG govt scholarship (TESAS) details for the continuing students  (Year 2 - Year 4) attending the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Papua New Guinea.

LATEST ARTICLE: PNG Universities and Colleges 2022 Acceptance List Info, TESAS, HELP Loan and Registration and Orientation - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

  • AES - Academic Excellence Scholarships
  • HECAS - Higher Education Contribution Assistance Scheme

TESAS AWARD HECAS AES

 

Students TESAS (Tertiary Education Student Assistance SchemeAward Status indicates the type of PNG govt scholarship offered to students. It is a merit-based award. AES is awarded to the best performing students (with a high GPA).

The number of scholarships available to continuing students (and new intakes) is determined by the availability of govt funding and HEIs GPA cut-off, yearly. Details of funding and GPA for each HEI in the country is the work of DHERST. Here are some guides to TESAS and GPA.


TESAS: AES & HECAS Stats that matter - 2021

We kept some 'stats that matter' based on the TESAS Award list for New Intakes over the years. Here is the stat for the 2021 TESAS Awards for Continuing Students:

  • 82 Continuing students on AES 
  • 6779 Continuing students on HECAS 
  • 6861 Total Students on TESAS

Note: The figures do not include the NEW INTAKES. 

The 2021 DHERST Selection List for New Intakes was released a day after the Continuing Students TESAS Award List. Read about the NEW INTAKES 'stats that matter'

Some HEIs have not submitted their 2020 continuing students GPA to DHERST. Those institutions are not included in the TESAS list released by DHERST.

Download the 2021 Continuing Students List for HEIs

You can view or download the official list on the DHERST website. Here is a quick download link >> DOWNLOAD NOW, PDF.

Some HEIs have not submitted their students' 2020 Continuing Students GPA lists for the 2021 academic year. Students who are attending those institutions will expect delays at the Beginning of Year Travel and TESAS payments.

The students attending those institutions should call the Students' Admin for more information. 

2020 self-sponsored students who have secured a scholarship must make travel arrangements with their universities or higher institution. 

Recommended reading: How to Secure a Govt Scholarship - TESAS 2022

Re-admission and self-sponsored students

The advice from DHERST for students whose names are NOT on the list:

Be advised that students whose name do not appear on the list [ Continuing Students approved list] should consult your respective HEIs to confirm your progressive status for 2021. (DHERST, press release, 26/01/2021)

Why only 6861 Continuing Students on TESAS?

Here is what DHERST said about it...

"The number of applications for TESAS Awards with a qualifying minimum GPA level is typically greater than the number of available TESAS Awards.

It should be noted that some program admission requirements of institutions might include a different weighted consideration of grades and/or prerequisite subjects with minimum grades, due to their particular academic requirements. As such, Awardees are selected within program quotas on a merit basis. This means that not all applicants with a qualifying GPA level will receive an award." (DHERST, website)

Another reason is that the 2021 TESAS award list does not include some HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) who did not submit the students GPA to DHERST. And their students may not have been included in the official list released on the 26 of January 2021.

TESAS PNG Govt Scholarship Funds

TESAS selection continuing students

In a National Newspaper report, the secretary for higher education said that they only received K36 million (out of a K68 million required TESAS funding) for 2021. The question was why half of the required TESAS fund?

In 2020 the PNG govt, through DHERST, implement the students' assistantship scheme - the Higher Education Loan Program, or HELP. The same year, the govt allocated K220 million to fund HELP.

The higher education secretary said

... 6,637 students applied for HELP this year [2020] and K28,109,457 was paid by the Government.

How do students apply for HELP?

HELP APPLICATION FORM

HELP aims to enhance quality at higher education. The studentship program also aims to ensure access to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are available to eligible students.

Firstly, students must demonstrate that they are enrolled in a registered institution in order to apply.

Students who wish to apply for this loan should complete the HELP Application Form. See your HEI/Student Admin for more info. That means all students (both continuing and new intakes) should register at a HELP participating institution.

Then, see your students admin/support staff and complete the application form. The respective HEIs will launch the forms, on your behalf, with DHERST and let you know of the outcome.

Acceptance List: DHERST, Govt, HEIs and Stakeholders Challenges

2022 Acceptance list dherst - Study Online in PNG

LATEST ARTICLE: PNG Universities and Colleges 2022 Acceptance List Info, TESAS, HELP Loan and Registration and Orientation - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.

A discussion - Acceptance list for PNG Institutions

In this article about the Acceptance List 2022, we attempt to discuss the nature of the 

  • Grade 12 selections, 
  • the 2022 Acceptance List and
  • challenges of releasing the acceptance list on time. 
The aim is to address many of the 'why' questions (see the comment thread in this article) relating to the (LATE) release of the selection list and acceptance list in 2021.

The opinions are based on our personal experience since the inception of DHERST's online selection systems. We hope that it gives you an understanding of the whole process. 

For the status updates of PNG universities acceptance list, click here.

Grade 12 selections to the tertiary institutions

The selection of Grade 12 students takes place before the Acceptance List 2022 comes out. DHERST used the National Online Application System (NOAS) to capture students school leavers choices. And uses the National Online Selection System (NOSS) to, electronically, select students according to their choice on the online school leavers' form, the NOAS.

Before 2018, the Grade 12 students have only 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices they pre-fill on a manual school leavers form. The manual SLF is sent to Port Moresby where tertiary institutions in the country scour over the paper forms and select students - this is long gone. 

The online selection and 2022 acceptance list compilation will be the 4rd year DHERST runs the online selection. 

The online selection system and acceptance is the best technological intervention implemented by the higher education department, DHERST. 

However, there seemed to be a certain weakness in the selection process as seen in the release of the 2020 and 2021 acceptance lists. We do not know exactly what caused the delay but we can only infer that it may be due to the Public Holiday. 

2021 Acceptance List Release - Case Example

The 2021 acceptance list will be published before the TESAS Award list. The Post Courier reports on a statement by the higher education department secretary mentioned that the 2021 acceptance list will be published in two parts
  • Acceptance List of School Leavers: formal list of all the students who will be enrolled for the first time at tertiary institutions in the country. 
  • TESAS Award List 2021: The final list of the students in the 2021 acceptance list including their 'indicated' TESAS Award status.
DHERST indicated to have released the acceptance list on the second Friday of January 2021. This has not happened. 

We believe DHERST was working to get the 2021 acceptance list out to the public. Meanwhile, students, parents and citizens have to wait for the higher education department to make another announcement. 

The Post Courier reported that the TESAS Award list will be released in late January or February 2021. The reason being that 'DHERST will wait for all the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the country to confirm their selections listing before the final TESAS Award List comes out.

Waiting for the HEIs in the country to send the confirmed list to DHERST can take ages. But, the Post Courier hinted that the final list could come out by late January or early February before the academic year starts.

Why Acceptance List Not Released on time?

Many students, parents and stakeholders were asking the same question, why was the list acceptance list not released on time. As mentioned, the process of selection, quality checks, confirming availability of spaces with HEIs, etc is challenging. DHERST must get it right so that they do not mess up the final acceptance list.

The final acceptance list for students to enrol at the universities (including the PNG Govt's scholarships details) should/will come out a few weeks before the academic year starts. 

If you are someone with a special circumstance (non-school leaver, school leaver, self-sponsored, etc ) and needed more time to prepare; make sure you mitigate the risks in good time before the academic year starts.

DHERST Selection 2022 Key Points

In a press release two years ago, the department of higher education said the students whose names appeared on the Grade 12 selection list must take note the three points
(1) Your personal details contained within your application has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution which has selected you.
(2) You should expect to receive an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI). The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you on specific details. 
(3) If your Study Program receives scholarship awards from the National Government, you may be eligible for financial support through the Tertiary Education Student Assistance Scheme (TESAS). Your TESAS status is also indicated in this National Selection List. Please log in to the NOAS (apply.dherst.gov.pg) and check MyStatus section any time before the 22nd December 2018 for further details on how to access your scholarship. [DHERST , Press Release 2018]

 

Concerns if DHERST race past February 2022

In the meantime, there is no need to worry, even February is approaching fast. Citizens and stakeholders must be patient. DHERST, since 2018, has done a fantastic job with the:
  • Online School Leavers Application (NOAS),
  • Online Selection System (NOSS),
  • Compiling and quality-checking the selection listings
  • Liaising with HEIs in the country, 
  • Publishing the acceptance listing for ALL the HEIs 

Of course, there should be concerns raised IF DHERST has gone past mid-February. But for now, the department needs all the support they can get from the PNG govt, institutions in the country, parents, citizens and stakeholders.

We ask that you join us on FacebookTwitter or YouTube for up-to-date education info on tertiary institution selections in the country, as they happen. In addition to PNG Insight Blog, we also run the PNG Insight website and PNG Mathematics Exam Resource website

2021 DEC UPDATES:

UPDATE: We filed a DMCA complaint and, thankfully, Google has penalised the website. This article is NO longer ranking #1 on the spam site.

CONTENT STEALING NOTICE TO PNG INSIGHT READERS

  • PNG INSIGHT contents were duplicated and published on a foreign website. We know that this *content scrapping* does not do anyone, any good. We are using the same heading to direct our readers to the right pages with up-to-date information.
  • CONTENT SCRAPPING is for those that have ulterior motives - that is to misdirect readers at their own convenience. We have reported this to GOOGLE in the hope that Google will penalise that website.
  • REFRAIN from using a foreign website that has duplicate content. The person behind the *stealing of our contents and images* has an ulterior motive. And DOES NOT aim to provide relevant information. We believe it is an ASIAN website. Dodgy.
  • WE will continue to provide relevant information for our readers. Please refer to the links below for the updated information on DHERST TESAS Selection List 2021

Here are the original articles where the images and words are taken from:

This is just one instance of stolen and replicated content. 

We know that content scrappers do steal content and we care less. But, we are concerned that these replicated contents can, potentially, mislead the readers. The content *that website* published has been stolen from different articles on our blog and website.

For example, the image on the stolen article (see below) does not reflect information in it. The image, in fact, was about how to Calculate GPA. Whereas the content is about Grade 12 Selection Listing for 2021.

The years have been changed, but completely misrepresented the original articles, though we had the original articles published under logical times, different headings and with clear instructions.

This is an important article with Grade 12 historical data that we compiled over the years. As such, we know when to update the articles and present them in a timely manner. We plan to update the data in the article for 2020 using the official DHERST selection list for 2021. 

There are key articles on our blog and website that we update to reflect the changes and documents released by DHERST and NDoE.

Again, we ask our readers to refrain from visiting any foreign website that has duplicated content. It can be misleading and misdirected towards PNG readers. 

What the person copying Our contents and Image should do

The better thing that foreign website could do is to use:

  • proper attribution (without links to the article, but a mention where the content originated from), 
  • disclaimer (state a brief of where the content/article is taken from and provide link/s to the original article). 
By doing one of the above acknowledgements will guide readers to the right page so that all (readers, original content producers and content-scrappers) benefit. Sadly, this website deleted all our internal links. There was no acknowledgement of our work. As mentioned, their motive is ulterior and does not aim to inform and help readers.

Last year DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) published the Grade 12 Selection List on the 18th of December.

The selected students were awarded a government’s scholarship under two categories. The PNG government’s higher education scholarship is called TESAS (the Tertiary Education Scholarship Assistant Scheme).

TESAS is classed into either HECAS (the High Education Contribution Assistance Scheme) and AES (the Academic Excellence Scholarship). If a student is not awarded one of the government’s scholarships, then the student is considered Self-sponsored. The numbers of students awarded each scholarship in 2021 are given below.

DHERST announced 3 points that selected students to Tertiary institutions should take note of.

In a press release, the department of higher education said the students whose names appeared on the Grade 12 selection list must take note the following:

(1) Your personal details contained within your application has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution which has selected you.

( 2) You should expect to receive an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI). The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you on specific details.

( 3) If your Study Program receives scholarship awards from the National Government, you may be eligible for financial support through the Tertiary Education Student Assistance Scheme (TESAS). Your TESAS status is also indicated in this National Selection List. Please log in to the NOAS (apply.dherst.gov.pg) and check MyStatus section any time before the 22nd December 2018 for further details on how to access your scholarship. [DHERST, Press Release 2021 ]

It can be fiddly to identify a student’s name of the PDF selection listing. But, you can use a quick trick to solve this problem. Simply use the ‘search’ bar on the PDF list.

The students’ names are not on the selection list last year. Presumably, if it is the same this year, students can not use their names when searching. The best detail to use is the student’s number on School Leaver’s Form (SLF).

DHERST 2021 Online Application Grade 12 Grace Period Due Date

2021 DHERST GRACE PERIOD: Present Grade 12 students are in a privileged position to make the right choices on their Grade 12 School Leavers. Firstly, the National Application Online System (NAOS) gives the students the right choice upfront by highlighting (in red) the 'ineligible' options. There is no room for getting the choices wrong. Secondly, the students have 5 choices. That means 5 chances of getting into a tertiary institution. 

In the past, the Grade 12 students did not have the chance to change their choices after they've filled the manual School Leaver's Form (SLF). Not do the past students have 5 choices, they were limited to only 3 choices.

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

So, here is how you (Grade 12 students) can make full use of the Grade period and maximise your chances of securing a space for 2022.

2021 Grace Period - Why it is important

The Grade period lasts only 5 days. This is the time when you 'adjust' your choices. This is the easy part because DHERST should indicate to you on NAOS whether you are eligible for selection or not depending on your examinations marks. 

Here is what DHERST say about why the Grade Period is important:

''This [Grade Period] is a crucial period where you will start making your choices based on your final grade 12 results hence make sure to access your account during the mentioned dates. If you see the red highlight indicated in any of your five choices under “My Choices”, this means that your final result has not met the minimum program requirement set by the institution. Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.'' DHERST

The Grade 12 students in the country have between Tuesday 14th December and Friday 17th December 2021 to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. DHERST will NOT grant you access to making any changes after during the weekend or on Monday the 20th December 2021.

Important 2021 Dates

Do take note of the important remaining dates:

1.  NOAS grace period

Tuesday 14th December  to Friday 17th December 2021

2.  Launching of 2021 selection for 2022 academic year

Tuesday 21st December 2021


Launching of 2021 selection for 2022 academic year

The online selection via DHERST's National Online Selections System (NOSS) will kick in do the magic in 3 days. 

DHERST plans to launch the 2021 selections for the 2022 academic year on Tuesday 21 December 2021.  

There were issues last year when the Department of Higher Education has to republish the selection listing. If all goes to plan, students are likely to see their selection status by the date announced by DHERST. We hope all goes to plan.
