Brief Introduction of the Postgraduate School
The University of Uyo Postgraduate School came into being with the establishment of the University in 1991 with pockets of programmes in few departments.

The programmes are marked by specializations.
Philosophy of the Postgraduate School
The philosophy of the Postgraduate School is to pursue scholarship through systematic academic and research programmes geared towards shaping the perception, thinking, moral, physical and emotional demeanor and sensitivities of the student. It accomplishes these through emphasis in research orientation which encourages originality of thought, venturesomeness, ability to break barriers of mental inhibitions and the extension of the frontiers and horizon of knowledge. To this end, our postgraduate students with their supervisors and advisers see themselves as catalysts in the mission to reverse the cycle of backwardness that afflicts the conditions of life in their communities and beyond.
