More than 800 young men and women graduated from the University of Goroka on Friday, as the University announced plans for expansion.
The University says it is working to meet the growing demand for teachers.
The University struggled through last year with nationwide unrest and the subsequent premature ending of the academic year.
On Friday, things appeared to be back on track.
The graduation also comes at an important time for Papua New Guinea’s education system.
The Tuition Fee Free education policy which contributed to a demand for spaces at the primary and high school level has also put pressure on training institutions like UOG.
The University has has since announced plans for a satellite campus at Menifo outside of Goroka.
It will be a campus that caters to this demand.
The new campus will see a further increase in enrolment.
