(Note : At postgraduate studies level, BPKP only processes (he intake for Master's degree progremme in medicine and not for other postgraduate courses)

The intake into the public universities through this centralized agency is once a year and usually in the month of July.

However BPKP is not involved in managing the intake of the following categories of students into public universities and as such these groups of students are required to contact the individual public universities directly. The students involved here are:
foreign students
students who undertake programmes conducted via the Distance Learning Education mode or programmes being offered at Certificate level
