About Postgraduate School

The origin of the school of Postgraduate studies is traceable to the setting up of a Postgraduate committee in 2016. After consideration of the report from the Committee, the Senate approved the establishment of the Postgraduate School. The Senate went on to approve a number of postgraduate courses at Diploma and Masters Level in 2017. The implementation of the Senate decision began in January, 2018 when the approval was received by NUC.

The postgraduate school aims at imparting specialised knowledge and skills leading to the attainment by the students of higher degrees in various fields of endeavour. This appropriate mix of advanced courses, provision of excellent research and library facilities, as well as teaching and supervision by highly experienced Postgraduate Academic staff will ensure that knowledge is acquired. In general, considerable effort is made on a continuous basis by the University to provide a conducive environment for Postgraduate Study.
