I heartily welcome you on behalf of the Board and Management of the Postgraduate School, University of Ibadan (UI) to this great citadel of academic learning. Choosing to undertake postgraduate studies is one of the most important decisions in life. You have, therefore, made the right decision by choosing to study at UI where we have a tradition spanning over sixty years of postgraduate training and education. Indeed, the Postgraduate School, UI, has remained the only Centre of Excellence for Postgraduate training in Nigeria since 1975! Our admission profile and graduation records speak for themselves. Each year we receive applications from over 15,000 applicants out of which only about a third are admitted into our various postgraduate programmes. We are the highest producer of Master’s and Ph.D graduands in Nigeria with an average turnout of about 3,500 Master’s and 250 Ph.D degrees. As one of the best equipped universities in Sub-Saharan African, UI offers access to state-of-the-art research facilities, libraries and electronic resources, coupled with exceptional academic supervision. Our lecturers and Professors are involved in a large number of collaborative research projects with top African and other international Universities which enrich our postgraduate programmes. Besides, scholarship opportunities are available for different categories of students thus providing opportunities for the disadvantaged group to study in U.I. Ibadan city itself offers a serene environment and a welcoming atmosphere for research and learning. I particularly welcome all new students and wish you a fruitful stay in Nigeria’s premier University !
