Private school helping students find study options in Australia


A PRIVATE school in Port Moresby is expanding their students’ educational options to study in Queensland, Australia, an official says.
The number of students nationwide has been increasing every year, limiting the spaces available at tertiary institutions and universities, said the executive director of Kopkop College Maria Kopkop.
She said the school is looking at options of study and after attending the Queensland Department of Education international conference in Brisbane recently “we are excited to see what is in store for our students”.
“These are known as university pathways, and are pre-entry courses should they consider to apply to universities or tertiary organisations in the Queensland state,” Kopkop said.
She said these programmes will allow students to study foundation courses and skills in line with the Queensland Education Curriculum to allow them to apply to higher education institutions such universities.
Kopkop College’s Gerehu Campus currently offers grade 11 and 12 subjects under the Papua New Guinean public schools curriculum.
This is apart from a newly established matriculation programme under the University of Papua New Guinea’s CTSS programme that the college is currently running for school leavers.
