Preparations are underway at the PNG University of Technology for the annual Open Day, scheduled to be held on 8th of June 2018.
The theme of the Open Day is; “Unitech for Building Career Pathways for Our Young Children".
Chairman of the Organising Committee, Dr. Patrick Michael, revealed that invitation letters were sent to secondary schools within Morobe, Madang, and the Highlands Provinces to attend the event.
He expressed that the University is openly inviting Provincial Guidance Officers and Principals of secondary schools around the country to also attend and be informed about the admission requirements of the University.
Dr. Michael said the Open Day targets grade 12 students and school leavers to inform them about the different choices of career pathways available at the University.
All 13 academic departments of the University are preparing information on respective courses offered and will be opening up to receive the students and their teachers to talk to them on the day.
“Key support services like the library, clinic, security, and students’ facilities centre are taking part to talk to students and teachers on important services related to social, security, health, and spiritual wellbeing of students provided by the University,” said Dr Michael.
He said other significant information related to admission will also be made available include; STAT-P Admissions Test, upgrading of marks through the Department of Open and Distance Learning, and information on online selection from the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST).
