   "Our mandate is to create an enabling environment for postgraduate students to excel in the pursuit of their academic quests. The Postgraduate School provides additional support to that which is provided by faculties and departments in the form of workshops, courses, and other presentations, which equip the students with the requisite skills for successful completion of their postgraduate education."
—Professor Witness Mudzi (Director: Postgraduate School)

Welcome to the UFS, where we pride ourselves in the promotion of diversity, inclusivity and transformation. We focus on the generation of new knowledge to solve critical problems through research. The Postgraduate School is an initiative to support to this ideal.
The Postgraduate School (PGS) aims to create an enabling environment for postgraduate students to successfully complete their studies. This is achieved through providing courses, workshops, funding, and other relevant opportunities with the aim of equipping postgraduate students and staff members with the necessary research skills and resources required for the successful completion of their studies.
