Postgraduate Degrees

Through partnership with international universities and institutions, our Postgraduate School offers postgraduate diploma (PGD), Master degree, and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in the different fields of study. Students entering for PGD must have a first degree in related areas. Master and PhD programs which are normally by research and are the highest qualifications one can obtain from our institution. Usually, a bachelor degree is required to be admitted to any of our master degree programs. However, a student who has already done some extra studies after high school and obtained a diploma may have a direct entry to some of our master programs. In this case, the student will do an integrated master’s program for the period of five (5) years.
