We have plans to go into Vanuatu and other Islands within the Pacific Rim in the near future.
By establishing the Institute of Distance and Flexible Learning, the University of Goroka is cognizant of its obligation as a state University to increase its participation in the Government’s Vision 2050 by developing Human Capital for the Nation. The distance program will enrol limitless number of Papua New Guineans with tertiary qualifications through its Regional Open Campuses.
The Institute of Distance and Flexible Learning initiated UOG’s first ever overseas graduation for its Solomon Islands students in Honiara in conjunction with the launching of the IDFL international campus called the Pacific Open Campus (POC) in 2014. The Institute of Distance and Flexible Learning graduated its first cohort of 39 pioneer students in 2015 at UOG.
To provide quality tertiary education in the most flexible, convenient, accessible and affordable mode to the people of Papua New Guinea and the Pacific.
