Higher Education Register

The Register is a list of registered institutions and accredited programmes in the PNG higher education sector. Under the Higher Education Act 2014 (as amended), DHERST is tasked to manage and maintain a Register.

The Register includes all institutions and programmes registered under the Education Act 1983 and the Medical Act 1980. Additionally, these Institutions are transferred under the Higher and Technical Education Reform Act 2020 as part of the current higher education reform.

During transition, any institution and or programme registered or accredited through the National Education Board and the Nursing Council is taken in and listed on the Register. DHERST will then conduct its own external review process to comply with the National Standards.

This Register is only for the interim, whilst DHERST is working on an updated one to include institutions registered by the National Training Council.
