Approved Nigerian Federal Universities for Postgraduate studies.
Postgraduate education is any higher education undertaken after a bachelor’s degree. Usually, this will be a requirement to get onto a postgraduate course. This is a step up from what an undergrad would have studied and is an opportunity to focus on a particular area.
In an increasingly competitive graduate climate, a postgraduate qualification can distinguish you from other candidates who are chasing the same job positions.
In the US, postgraduate education is referred to as ‘graduate education’ and would be undertaken by a grad student at a grad school. Alternatively, students will move on to medical school, law school or business school to study these specific areas.
