Dean's Welcome Address

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the School of Postgraduate Studies of the University of Lagos - the Lagoon Lighthouse of the University of First Choice and the Nation's pride.

Over the years, the School has demonstrated excellence in its activities. We are irrevocably committed to sustaining this culture and indeed transmitting it from excellence to distinction. Our goal as a supportive sub-system of the University is to provide robust and innovative postgraduate programmes that are geared towards producing high level manpower that have undergone intensive quality postgraduate training and are globally competitive.

Training in the Lagoon Lighthouse of the University of Lagos conforms to modern pedagogical approach to learning. Our students have access to and make effective use of open source digital technology to enhance their theoretical and cutting-edge research oriented knowledge. I urge you to key into this unique modern electronic/digital learning.

Furthermore, periodic review of programmes and the introduction of new ones, mounted to address the challenges of security, conflict management e.t.c. has ensured that our programmes remain very competitive. We are committed to partnerships, linkages and collaborations, to bridge the "Town and Gown" gap and to fulfil our mission of service to the community. Wholeheartedly, we are at the vanguard of implementing the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) Benchmark Minimum Academic Standard for Postgraduate Programme (PGBMAS), as a step towards quality control of postgraduate teaching and research in Nigeria.
