We welcome applications from suitably-qualified persons who may wish to pursue Degree, Diploma, or Certificate Programmes from August 2016.
Once you have found a suitable programme, your admittance is subject to Programme-specific Admission Requirements as well as the University's General Admission Requirements.
For the 2015/2016 academic year, only applicants from Regions 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9 will be given the option to submit their applications 'On Line' or 'On Paper'. All other applicants must submit their applications online. Do not apply on-line and submit a paper application as well.

However, Prospective Guyanese Students will be required to pay the non-refundable processing fee of G$500 for each programme that is chosen. Prospective Foreign students will be required to pay the non-refundable processing fee of US$5.00 for each programme that is chosen. Applicants may apply for a maximum of three programmes, however this must be done as one submission, if applying online.
Applying On Paper - Only for applicants residing in indicated areas
Applications must be submitted on the prescribed forms which may be obtained from IDCE Centres in Regions 2, and 10, the Regional Administration Offices in Regions 1- Matthews Ridge, Mabaruma and Kaituma, Region 7 - Bartica & Kamarang, Region 8 - Mahadia & Paramakatoi and Region 9 - Lethem, Ishalton and Annai. When requesting application forms candidates must state the programme they wish to pursue in order to obtain the appropriate form.
If the period for applying for any programme is extended, a late fee of G$2000 for local applicants and US$20 for the foreign applicants will be charged for each application received after May 5, 2016. The total processing fee for late applicants will therefore be G$2,500 and US$25 respectively.
