UoG 2023 Non-school Leavers and School Leavers Acceptance Info - University of Goroka

UoG Students Acceptance 2023: The information presented below is a compilation of news and instructions about the University of Goroka (UoG) selections. 

The information is for non-school leavers (who have applied to UoG) and school leavers who applied through DHERST's NOAS (National Online Application System). 

2023 University of Goroka Application Form

2023 Univesity of Goroka (UoG) selections info

If you are a non-school leaver and have applied to UoG, the university (UoG) will inform you when you are accepted into their program. For example, if you submitted the 2023 UoG non-school leaver application, you'll hear directly from UoG - not from DHERST.

The university will directly inform you via the acceptance letter and/or by publishing the acceptance list on their website. Then, you must accept the Offer Letter and let the uni know about your intention to take up the offer immediately.

In 2020, the university informed its Continuing Students about their status before they left for the holiday. That was the best thing you had done because reduces the stress on UoG Admin during registration early in 2023.

Acceptance lists for 2023

The University of Goroka offers Diploma, Technical, Bachelor, Bachelor (Professional), Bachelor (Honours), Post-Graduate Diploma, and Masters programs.

Here is what UoG says about its programs:

The University of Goroka offers Specialized Degree, and Diploma Programs in the School of Education, School of Humanities, School of Science and Technology, Institute of Technical Vocational Education and Training, Institute of Post Graduate Studies, Institute of Distance and Flexible Learning, and UOG Enga Campus.

The University accepts the:
  • School leavers (Grade 12 school leavers seeking admission in the next immediate year) and;
  • Non-School leavers (Grade 12 passed-outs, other than school leavers) for admission into its Diploma, Bachelor and Bachelor (Professional) programs.

2023 UoG selections: Grade 12 students SL vs Non-school Leavers

Note that UoG works with DHERST to select Grade 12 students. In fact, UoG sends its *quota* to DHERST which then uses the online school leavers' choices to select the students for the academic year 2023. 

The final selection list is usually published by DHERST. 

So, if you are a Grade 12 student or a student classified as School Leaver, you'll have to check the higher education website.

As for Non-school Leavers, the selection is predominantly done by UoG. Whether you are applying for a diploma, first-degree program or post-graduate program, you'll have to check the UoG website for your name.

UoG Non-school Leavers Acceptance List 2023

Due to limited space and resources, the University of Goroka can only admit a limited number of new students into various programmes of study. As a result, competition is very high and priority is given to those with higher GPAs. 

Those seeking enrolment must satisfy the UoG admission requirement.

The Non-School Leavers are selected based on their application in response to the University’s advertisement every year. The university does the selection and informs the students by publishing the 2023 non-school leavers acceptance list on each university's website. 

If you have any questions about the 2023 Grade 12 selection process, PDF list, etc., please leave a comment below or check out this latest update on PNG Universities Non-School Leavers Selection.

School Leavers Acceptance List

As mentioned earlier, the School leavers (Grade 12 Students) are selected based on their options provided through the Department of Higher Education. DHERST does the selection online and informs the students of their AES or TESAS statuses.

The 2023 school leavers' selection list will be published on the DHERST website like it did in the past unless things have changed. However, it seems that the selection will continue as normal this year. 

Non-school Leavers Acceptance letters

The University sends offer/acceptance letters to all candidates selected for various programs in addition to advertising the names of selected candidates for various programs in the prominent newspapers in the Country. 

The candidates who accept the offer letters are requested to pay the relevant yearly fee in full and register themselves for the program for which they are accepted usually in February of the year concerned. 

The process of admission ends with the registration of the students for the program for which they are accepted.

You can also find out about the other PNG Universities and their 2023 selections on this information page.

2023 UoG Non-school Leavers Selection info

The University of Goroka (UoG) publishes the yearly acceptance lists in two parts every year. 

Lately, the university has announced the 'status' of the continuing students before they left for the Christmas Holiday which saves a lot of time and relieves the UoG Admin of the heavy registration duties at the start of the New Academic Year 2023.

UoG Non-school Leavers and School Leavers List

Firstly, the non-school leavers apply for a placing through the university. Therefore, UoG does the selection and publishes it on its website. It is the work of the university. 

Each faculty finalises the non-school leavers’ selections for the university. The university council then approves the listing for publication (and publishes the UoG non-school leavers’ selection list pdf on its website).

Secondly, the school leavers applications are through the department of higher education, DHERST. Therefore, the listing for all tertiary institutions in Papua New Guinea including UoG is the work of DHERST. The list will be published by the higher education department.
