Established by the Council in September 1998, the Graduate School is responsible for the quality assurance and quality enhancement and overall management of the research postgraduate (RPg) degrees, viz. Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil). It sets guidelines and regulations for RPg education, implements policies on admissions, academic progress, examinations and quality assurance in respect of training for research students.
The Graduate School is committed to providing a comprehensive education to nurture the next generation of researchers and professionals. Aligning with the University’s mission on RPg education to provide first-class RPg education and learning that meet the highest international standard, it works closely with Faculties and Departments in the recruitment of top students and the continual development of research programmes. To equip students with the skill-sets for research work, the Graduate School also arranges courses, workshops and other forms of training to RPg students on generic skills relevant to studies.
