Directorate of Graduate Studies

The Directorate of Graduate Studies coordinates admission, teaching, field research, supervision and examination of students in diverse programmes leading to the award of Ph.D and Masters degrees as well as Postgraduate Diplomas. It is headed by a director who chairs the Board of Graduate Studies (BGS). The mandate and core objective of the directorate is to facilitate both students and graduate faculty to implement effective processes in advanced level study in compliance with our university’s graduate study policy, CUE guidelines and to attain results comparable with national, regional and international best practices.
