Representatives from several institutions and universities around the country attended the expo in Port Moresby and took time to explain to the students about their education background and assist them with their study interest by providing much needed information at the same time promoting their institutions.

It was a success, and as usual, the aim was to market to interested secondary students and keen individuals the type of courses offered by various institutions.

The expo was also to help students and individuals in furthering their studies or to encourage them pursue their career interests.

Speaking during the expo, DWU Registrar who also represented the university during the expo, Paul Passingan, said that one of the aims was to expose to the interested people and students what the university was offering in terms tertiary education while at the same time highlight on the school’s policy.

“We hope that we have encouraged people about the kind of courses we offer and the university’s policy. The whole idea is to sell to interested people and secondary students a place at the university where they will be able to further their education.
“But we cannot just look at it from the education perspective. We hope we are able to target the right people with the right kind of personality and not just people who go there to get educated,” Mr Passingan said.

He confirmed that last week was the third time DWU participated in the career expo which is an annual event.

Mr Passingan was quiet pleased when he announced that this year’s expo proved even a better one for the school because of the new courses offered under their new program.

He said DWU was progressing and continues to extend its education services as they affiliate with other institutions.

The former student's presence at the expo was merely to help promote the university. The ex-students have formed a Divine Word University Alumni Association and they meet each time to discuss issues and activities they involve in order to raise funds for the association. The get together is also an opportunity to meet up with old friends or schoolmates - some who hardly even see each other because of differing field interests.

The expo once again provided students from secondary schools around Port Moresby and interested people an opportunity to gain something from and there is hope that they will continue to pursue their education in their areas of interests after completing their studies.
