All our degrees, certificates, and training offer the option of a placement, and some include a professional placement as an integral part of the programme. Over 70% of our students choose a placement or study year. Our students are highly valued and sought after by leading graduate employers. Practical experience and theoretical study gives students a unique perspective. Placements provide you with the skills to succeed in the most competitive work environments.

Enhancing Employability

Our students gain placements in highly innovative and dynamic companies in industry, commerce, the health and caring professions, education, public services or research institutions.

Some of the companies where we have placed students include:

  • Air Niugini, BSP, DATEC, DPM,KPMG etc...

Paid and Voluntary Placements

We encourage employers to offer paid placements. However, there are a number of unpaid placements each year within hospitals, charitable organisations and academic institutions.

The length of placements varies and you can work in Port Moresby or in other provinces. Placements in other provinces may be eligible for an individual application by students/graduates themselves.

  • Paid placements are in the region of K150 - K800 per annum

We cannot guarantee that a particular placement will be available or that you will be able to earn a particular salary; applications for placements can be very competitive.
  • Faculties have staff dedicated to maintaining links with employers and helping students find a placement
  • Staff provide support while you are on placement, usually by email
