The Graduate Studies Unit
The Graduate Studies Unit is in charge of establishing, reviewing, and assessing post-graduate programs in Southern UC. It will work closely with related departments/units to ensure the rigorous standard of admission, assessment, and evaluation of graduate programs.
As far as home-grown post-graduate programs are concerned, we have been able to complete and receive approval from the Government-approval agency, MQA, to start the MBA program. This is the first Master’s program at Southern UC and we proudly label it as SOUTHERN MBA, which started in 2015. Currently, we also offer other Postgraduate programme under Doctor of Philosophy by research, Master's degree by research and Master's degree mix mode (70% research and 30% coursework). Please click Postgraduate Programme link for further details on the programmes.
The Research Unit is responsible for administrating research activities among academic staff and graduate students. It acts as a platform to coordinate research funds and conference financial assistance.
