The University of Papua New Guinea will next year be offering courses in Solomon Islands following the signing of a partnership between the UPNG and the Solomon Islands College of Higher Education.

The memorandum of understanding paves the way for the setting up of the Honiara Open Campus as part of UPNG's expansion into the region.

The Honiara Campus director, Hugo Kop, says they will be offering a number of programmes including a Certificate in Tertiary and Community Studies as well as selected diploma and degree courses.

He says the Honiara Campus will be enrolling an unlimited numbers of students because of its status as a distant learning centre.
