University of Papua New Guinea suspension affecting International students


The indefinite suspension of semester one at the University of Papua New Guinea will not only affect national students, but also the international students.

This means that the international students at the university will also have to leave the campus within 48 hours. An exception is there for the students at the School of Medicine and Health Science Taurama Campus given their hospital practicals and the peculiarity of the academic program.
The decision by the university council to suspend the semester came following the boycotting of national students for Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to step down.
According to a Solomon Islander student at the UPNG Waigani campus, the Solomon Islands students at the campus are awaiting word from their High Commission in Port Moresby on how they will be taken care of after students vacate the campus. The university council said it is up to the sponsors to take care of the students and it is now upon the Solomon Islands Government to sort out their students.
The Solomon Islands High Commission in Port Moresby is currently having a meeting with the university council, however, the topic of discussion is not yet known.
Meanwhile, the students to media regarding this matter said they are hopeful to get a visit from the High Commission this evening before all students are ordered to vacate the campus tomorrow. PNGFM/PNG Today
