University Of Ibadan Postgraduate School: Their Requirements And The Available Courses To Study

As we know, University Of Ibadan is arguably one of the best University in Nigeria. The first postgraduate degree of the University was awarded in 1952 when the University was still a University College then it was under the scheme of the special relationship with the University of London. In the year 1962, when the then University College transformed into the independent University of Ibadan, there were only 64 students registered for higher degrees, some of whom decided to transfer their registration to the University of Ibadan.


In order to administer the higher degree programme, the Senate of the University of Ibadan created the Higher Degrees Committee on 28 January 1963, and charged it with the responsibility of considering recommendations from the Faculty Boards on matters relating to the pursuit of higher degrees at the university. As time went and the number of higher degrees students increased, it was found that the cumbersome procedure involved in processing postgraduate matters from Faculty Boards of Studies through Faculty Boards to the Higher Degrees Committee and, finally, to Senate was delaying recommendations, which often took as long as a year to get to Senate. As a result of recommendations from the Faculty Boards and the Higher Degrees Committee, Senate in 1970 established the Board of the Postgraduate Studies to replace the Higher Degrees Committee.
