Welcome to School of Post-Graduate Studies (SPS)

line1 HOD

The School of Postgraduate Studies (SPS) was established in 2015 as an organ of Al-Qalam University Katsina (AUK) charged with the responsibility of promoting, supervising, coordinating and regulating postgraduate (PG) studies in the University. PG programmes in the University are designed in line with the main objective of PG education in the Nigerian University System, that is, to further develop the spirit of enquiry in PG students through training in research in an atmosphere of intellectual independence and individual creativity, combined with a strong sense of team work. They are also designed having conscious regard to the Vision and Mission of Al-Qalam University thus:

Vision

"To impart meaningful and relevant knowledge with high moral standing and fear of Allah (SWT) through provision of up-to-date teaching and research facilities in informatics, sciences and humanities, thereby serving as a model to similar institutions in Nigeria".

Mission

"Pursuit of academic excellence in an Islamic, morally sound, efficient and conducive learning environment. Also, to provide quality education and promote research and community service through high standards in students' admission and staff recruitment".

As a community-based University, AUK is inspired by the need to satisfy the quest and yearnings of its immediate constituency/catchment for cutting edge PG education of the 21st Century. Nonetheless, the University is well disposed to avail eligible Nigerians and non-Nigerians alike the opportunity to pursue qualitative PG education through its various PG Programmes that are on stream. As much as possible, the curricula, course specifications, admission and graduation requirements for the programmes have been structured substantially in line with the National Universities Commission (NUC) Bench Mark for Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS).

With qualified and experienced lecturers on the ground and state-of-the-art facilities provided by the University, our PG programmes are both viable and competitive, yet cost effective. Patronize us now, and you will not regret that you did. Welcome to the School of Postgraduate Studies, Al-Qalam University.
