A welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) of the University of Ghana. The School co-ordinates all graduate level academic programmes for the Colleges, Schools, Institutes/Centres and Departments within the University. As part of its coordinating role, the School’s mandate includes: Promoting the development, diversification and effective delivery of post-graduate programmes to address emerging national issues; and Accreditation of all faculty teaching and supervising graduate programmes to maintain high standards and ensure high quality graduate programme output.  Additionally, the School deals with all matters which have to do with admission, registration and records, examination of theses and dissertations, official correspondence and welfare of graduate students. It also regulates and offers advice on graduate programmes being offered in the University’s affiliate institutions.

In its quest to become a world class research-intensive University, the University of Ghana, is committed to creating an enabling environment that makes it increasingly relevant to national and global development through cutting-edge research as well as high quality teaching and learning. The School of Graduate Studies is therefore placed at the heart of the University’s drive to achieve this vision.

We are not only proud of the myriad opportunities and knowledge we offer the international community but also, we take pride in our students and alumni, and we believe that every incoming student adds to our legacy of academic excellence.

Our students are confident and come across as relevant individuals in their respective careers across the globe. Our faculty members are highly qualified professionals and very experienced in using relevant innovative methods in imparting knowledge, thereby making the teaching and learning experience very exciting.

While we believe that the School is heading in the right direction in terms of the graduate student experience at UG, we are not resting on our laurels, and will continue to work hard, together with all our stakeholders to ensure we continuously achieve qualitative improvements.

I am confident that the University of Ghana can meet and exceed your expectations for graduate studies. We are proud of the opportunities and experiences that the University of Ghana offers every day, and we hope you will become part of our family. We look forward to welcoming you soon to the University of Ghana.
