The University of Rwanda aspires to “World Class Research Led University”, internationally recognized Institution that excels in research, innovation, teaching and learning as well as community engagement. In addition to that, the University of Rwanda must support the Government of Rwanda to deliver on National Agenda towards its sustainable development.
Without a strengthened and very well coordinated Postgraduate Studies Unit, the University of Rwanda will not achieve the above highlighted vision, mission and mandate to support Rwanda and Africa Region to produce more Graduates ready for today’s complexities and opportunities. This is why the Management of the University of Rwanda established the UR CPGS (University of Rwanda Centre for Postgraduate Studies) to coordinate the Management of Postgraduate Programs except activities related to teaching and supervision which remains the responsibility of Schools and Colleges.
Our primary objective is to increase the number of PG programs with high quality and standards so that we can attract qualified Graduates Nationally, Regionally and Internationally.
