Students show interest in tertiary opportunities

Youth & Careers

Divine Word University (DWU) participated at the career exposition hosted at the University of Goroka, Eastern Highlands, in early June.
A team from DWU informed prospective students about the programmes offered at the university’s main campus in Madang and other campuses around the country.
The two-day event brought tertiary institutions to set up programme display booths and talk to students and teachers from high schools and secondary schools in Goroka.
The students were informed about the entry requirements of grade 12 students for each tertiary institution for further studies.
Non-school leavers and working professionals, including prisoners, also attended and received information about study programmes.
The higher learning institutions also highlighted different policies for students to follow after they were selected to enrol.
DWU Vice President (student affairs) Ted Alau told the students it was crucial they scored good grade point average (GPA) scores to be considered for university studies.
Alau reminded the students that good behaviour play a part in their pursuits for further education.
DWU office of the registrar staff, Marina Waita, said many students and non-school leavers were interested in DWU and the team was kept busy with questions and requests for information for studies.
Waita said working professionals also turned up at the DWU booth and received information about
the university’s popular flexible learning programmes for adult learners.
She said students asked for programme entry the GPA requirements.
