PNG Universities rank 2021

With the current ranking, PNG University ranks are as follow:

  2. Divine Word University, 
  3. The University of PNG, 
  4. The University of Goroka, 
  5. Pacific Adventist University and 
  6. PNG University of Natural Resources and Environment.

The six universities are ranked based on the criteria that the university is;

  • accredited by the appropriate Papua New Guinean higher education-related organization, offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) and delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format.

According to the UniRank website, it aims to provide a non-academic comparison of achievements or merits by the higher learning institutions based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
