State Universities in Nigeria to Study Postgraduate Programmes

Approved Nigerian State 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 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.
