Students arrive and enroll

New students are also taking part in an orientation program to get acquainted with university life and the requirements of studying at DWU.
According to DWU’s vice president for student affairs, Br Andrew Simpson, the university expects to enroll 1500 students at the Madang campus. This he said is inclusive of about 1000 continuing students, 350 new students and 150 returning to resume studies.

The new academic year also sees students for the first time occupying five new dormitories (three for females and two for males) that were built at the cost of K8.3 million through funding from AusAID’s PNG Incentive Fund.
DWU’s Flexible Learning Centre (formerly Faculty of Flexible Learning) also received its first batch of students for 2013 for the week-long residential sessions of their studies.


The Centre facilitates for flexible learning studies for professional people who cannot take up fulltime studies due to work and family commitments.
The Madang campus has been abuzz with the arrival of students from all over Papua New Guinea in the last several days. As usual some arrived by plane while others travelled by road and sea transports. DWU’s campuses in Port Moresby, Wewak and Rabaul have their own student registration programs.
