Welcome to your National Online Application System (NOAS) login interface. Please note that DHERST will be using this interface to post any important information you need to be aware of, hence, do check this interface from time to time.

Your online account will enable you to make your choices or apply to your preferred tertiary institutions in Papua New Guinea. Unlike in the past, you now have the luxury of applying for five main choices and making your backup choices.

Do note that programs in your account will appear based on a match between your subject combinations and the program requirements set by the institution. If you are unable to view certain programs that you wish to apply, it means that your subject combination did not match the program requirement hence the program is not showing.

Also, take note of the important dates and activities of the NOAS below (the same is included in NOAS Student Manual).
