DWU representatives meeting prospective students in the provinces.

Prospective students wishing to study at Divine Word University (DWU) will get a chance to meet representatives from the University and hear about the programs when they visit the provinces from 18th June onwards.

The first stop for the DWU road show team is the Eastern Highlands where the team will be at the Education and Career Exposition of the Faculty of Education at the University of Goroka on 8th June.

The next province will be Milne Bay where the team will be at the Cameron Secondary School near Alotau. Schools from outer islands and districts are expected to travel into Alotau and spend the week there for the expo from 18th to 22nd June.

From 14th to 15th July, the DWU team will be in East New Britain at Kokopo Secondary School and will cover 10 secondary schools there. The DWU’s amalgamated colleges in ENB, St Mary’s School of Nursing in Vunapope and OLSH Kabaleo Teachers College will also take part in the expo.

On 14th and 15th August, the DWU road show team will attend the Enga Education and Careers Expo at the Wabag Secondary School and on 16th and on 17th August, the team will be at the neighbouring Western Highlands and Jiwaka in Mount Hagen for the expo organized by Western Highlands Careers Association.

Dates for the exposition of DWU in Port Moresby for National Capital District and Central Province is yet to be set as this normally done through the TVET division of the Department of Education around July and August.
DWU’s road show team leader and executive officer of student affairs, Ted Alau said the university’s popular Faculty of Flexible Learning (FFL) will join the expo team for the first time this year.

The FFL which offers studies by the flexible mode to people in the workforce has given opportunity for study and university qualification to many people since its inception over 11 years ago.

Alau said the target groups for FFL are government workers, business community and NGO workers who need additional qualification to up skill themselves and to build capacities in their respective organizations. Alau said schools in provinces not covered in the 2012 road show will be provided with promotional pamphlets. (dw.ac.pg/CBC Communications 260512 – giorgiolicini@yahoo.com)
