University of Port Harcourt Post Graduate School
Rivers, Nigeria
Accreditation Status : Yes

Initially, the graduate programmes were administered by the School (now Faculties) and the Registry. In October 1982, the School of Graduate Studies was formally established with Professor E.J. Alagoa as the first Dean, and it became necessary to streamline the procedures for the operation of graduate programmes. The General Regulations approved by Senate required each Faculty to set up a "Departmental Graduate Studies Committee" to make recommendations regarding all matters concerning graduate programmes to its Faculty Board. 

The university aims to implement Senate Policy and Guidelines for the initiation, consolidation and co-ordination of innovation research, provide quality administrative support for graduate programmes, equip research laboratories in the academic departments and ensure availability of data for national development.
