A word from the Dean, Dr. Jane Kinuthia
The Graduate School facilitates and coordinates Postgraduate Studies to enhance the quality of all the Postgraduate programmes offered at the University. The School ensures quality control in all stages of postgraduate studies through streamlining and benchmarking relevant policies as well as establishing research timelines and rhythms starting from concepts to the final submission of Theses and Dissertations.

An important element of quality control is the establishment of a network of highly qualified Dissertation and Theses supervisors and external examiners recruited from like-minded institutions in both Universities and industry. The School has adopted the Integrated Online Graduate Monitoring System (i-OGMS) as an online platform that allows for real-time interaction between supervisors and students. Through the system, it monitors interactions between students and supervisors and is, therefore, able to provide the necessary support as well as remedial measures that may be necessary.

The Graduate School works closely with the Centre for Research, Innovations, and Publications to build the capacity of postgraduate students through the organization of research seminars and training workshops. These collaborative efforts have extended to providing opportunities for students to disseminate research results through the University’s annual Research Conferences. The Graduate School also works closely with Heads of Departments to institutionalize postgraduate seminars at the departmental level.

The Graduate School works closely with the other three Schools towards the realization of the common vision of making PAC University a world-class University through the production of high-quality theses and dissertations as well as highly competent graduands that are responsive to market needs and national development agenda. It will continue raising the bar of Postgraduate Scholarship and Academic Excellence as envisioned in the University’s mission.
