Unpaid university funds hit students


The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology’s delay of TESAS funds payments to the University of PNG has stopped AES/HECAS students from enjoying their benefits on time.
Such slackness has caused inconveniences to the students and their parents who want to see their children comfortably settle in and flow with the commencement of the academic year.
Many first-year UPNG students are affected and are finding it difficult to get into boarding and lodging facilities because DHERST has not made its payment.
Apparently the drama between the DHERST Minister and the UPNG administration over the appointment and termination of the registrar and VC has taken its toll on both the innocent students and the staff.
