FUTMINNA HOLDS PG MATRICULATION ..We Are Now Model For Specialised Varsities – Prof Bala

Prof. Bala stated this yesterday in his speech during the matriculation ceremony for 2018/2019 postgraduate students held at the Centre for Preliminary and Extra-Mural Studies (CPES) Hall, Bosso campus, said it is due to the institution’s uncompromising adherence to timelines in its programme implementation, dispassionate and transparent evaluation procedure and very conducive academic environment that is student-friendly.

Excellence and global competitiveness are the guiding principles of the University, the VC said, adding that it is the leading specialized university in Nigeria and a model which other specialized universities now use to measure their progress.

He said Postgraduate students of the University are expected to be role model for younger ones, warning that the University would not compromise on character component, despite the importance it attaches to meeting academic requirements.

He disclosed that less than 30 percent of those who applied into the University’s postgraduate programmes were eventually given admission and therefore, implored the new students to maximize the opportunities thrust on them through their admission.

“On this premise alone, I call on you to be dedicated, hardworking and conscious of time management in order to keep abreast with your programme schedule,” he advised.

The VC maintained that upholding the threshold minimum coursework CGPA for Postgraduate Diploma and Master’s students and maximum allowable period for defending PhD research proposals, zero tolerance for examination malpractice, in addition to other milestones in the institution’s programme implementation were aimed at sustaining its enviable standard and rating as well as being in tandem with international best practices.

Prof. Bala stressed the need for the students to work closely with their supervisors in order to be properly guided, just as he urged them to study the postgraduate prospectus to get acquainted with the requirements for graduation.

The University Registrar, Mr. Amos Nmadu Kolo administered the matriculation oath on the students.
