Space needed to expand uni centre

Lae News, Normal

MOROBE’s University of Papua New Guinea open campus is looking for space to expand.
Director Kensol Rui is searching for land to build lecture rooms and computer laboratories.
This is due to a rise in enrolment to more than 1,000 students.
Many of the students are from firms “like Telikom PNG Ltd” and the provincial government.
Mr Rui said the current location at Coronation Drive, which the centre shares land space with National Broadcasting Corporation, was inadequate.
“The centre needs much bigger land space to build facilities that can accommodate certificate, diploma and degree programmes,” he said.
The centre offers three programmes-certificate in tertiary and community studies (CTCS), diploma in accounting and degree programmes (bachelor in arts) for various social science courses, education, accounting, business management and public policy management.
It also offers natural and physical science foundation year courses.
Two more courses to be added are the bachelors in human resource management and business strategic management.
