Parents, School Leavers Confused Over IBSU status

By Staycey Yalo, EMTV News, Port Moresby

Recent issues surrounding the non-recognition of Institute of Business Studies/IBS University by the Department for Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology, have denied students their preferred choices for Tertiary education.

This has left both students, and their parents and guardians, confused over the debacle.

IBS University has issued notices to all secondary schools in NCD and in the media that it is a recognised university and is enrolling students for the 2018 academic year, despite being left out in the National Selections.

IBS University maintains that it was established with the NEC decision as of 1st December 2016 and by virtue of National Gazette Notification on the 25th January 2017.

In the past two weeks, the institution has received numerous inquiries from parents and students expressing concerns that students were not selected to IBSU as their first choice, however, selected to other tertiary institutions.

While this is causing confusion for students, it also puts them in a dilemma where they are forced to decide either settling for the institution allocated by DHERST or choose IBSU as initially chosen in their SLF and forego their TESAS if they had been offered scholarship by the DHERST during national selections.

DHERST Secretary Father Jan Czuba, said parents should be responsible for their children’s choices.

2017 Grade 12 School Leavers who had put IBS University as their first choice in their SLF are advised to visit IBS University Student Services for further clarification and enrolment for 2018.

IBS University will be enrolling students at Saraga Campus Six Mile starting tomorrow, on the 27th of December 2017 through to 15th January 2018 for the convenience of prospective students.
