IEA College of TAFE 

The International Education Agency of PNG Ltd has been providing high quality international education in Papua New Guinea for over 40 years.

The IEA College of TAFE delivers face to face training at four campuses - Ela Beach in Port Moresby; Coronation in Lae; Bamboo Heights in Mt Hagen; and Kimbe in West New Britain.

In 2017 the College introduced an eLearning platform to support students who are unable to attend studies at an IEA campus, but still want to complete high quality internationally recognised qualifications.

In 2018 the IEA College of TAFE is offering Australian equivalent qualifications registered with the PNG National Training Council. Australian equivalency ensures the structure of each qualification, the learning materials and resources, and the assessments, are the same as those provided at an Australian TAFE college.

This emphasis on providing students with high quality training experience  is supported by qualified trainers registered with the PNG National Training Council, who also hold the Australian training qualification of the Certificate IV TAE.

The College has invested heavily in ICT  with Telikom PNG providing  broadband fibre optic to the Ela Beach campus, and students at the campus now receive a monthly data allocation to support their studies. 

All campuses provide a secure environment for students, staff and visitors, along with landscaped gardens, and recreational facilities. Boarding facilities are available at the Lae and Mt Hagen campuses.

An agreement with the Brisbane Campus of James Cook University provides an articulation pathway for Diploma and Advanced Diploma graduates of the College who will be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning with possible credit transfer to James Cook University in Brisbane. PNG students are also eligible for a A$16,800 bursary if they enrol in a James Cook University Brisbane degree
