SCHOOL OF POSTGRADUATE STUDIES
The Kano's School of Postgraduate Studies was established on October 1989. The School’s pioneer Dean was Professor Munzali M. Jibril who gave it a sound foundation. Afterwards, the School was headed by six Deans.
The School of Post graduate Studies generally coordinates all the postgraduate programmes in the University. Hence, the overall function of the School revolves around the clearing of all postgraduate programmes prior to submission to the Senate Business Committee and the University Senate.
Furthermore, the School scrutinizes submission for the introduction of new postgraduate programmes by Departments and does so with respect to applications for admissions by candidates.
The school is administered by a Dean, a Deputy Dean, a Secretary to the School and other support staff.
When the School of Postgraduate Studies was established in 1989, it ran only two conventional higher degrees: Masters; and Ph. D degrees. Gradually, the postgraduate programmes at Bayero University, Kano expanded. Currently, the School of Postgraduate Studies coordinates 123 programmes comprising Ph.Ds, Academic Masters, Professional Masters and Postgraduate Diplomas. At present, all the Faculties in the University offer postgraduate programmes.
In the recent past, the University Senate approved the introduction of M.Phil degree programme. This is to enable candidates with a CGPA of 3.50- 3.99 at their Masters level to register for the programme and when successful they may proceed to the Ph.D level.
The School of Postgraduate Studies is located at its Main Office in the Main Campus of the Bayero University, Kano.
