With regard to our postgraduate school, we offer programmes leading to the award of Postgraduate Diploma in General Microbiology, Masters of Science and Masters of Philosophy including Industrial, Food and Environmental Microbiology.

All these programmes are designed to enhance the education of basic, fundamental and entrepreneurship education through the provision of adequately equipped laboratories and academically sound personnel that is already on ground.
Our requirement for Postgraduate Diploma (PD) programmes is a good graduate degree from a recognized University in Botany, Zoology or Biology and/or Biochemistry while we require a second level division pass in B.SC in microbiology. Duration of the PD programme is two (2) semesters for full time candidates and three (3) semesters for part-time programme.
