THE SCHOOL OF GRADUATE AND ADVANCED STUDIES
The School of Graduate and Advanced Studies (SGAS) is responsible for coordination and management of postgraduate and advanced study programmes within the university.
The School's Vision
The vision of the School is to ensure that high quality postgraduate curricula are developed in various disciplines, in line with the university and Commission for University Education (CUE) policy guidelines and academic standards are maintained in postgraduate teaching and research.
Use of Library by Postgraduate Students
The University Library wishes to inform all postgraduate students and encourage them to use the available electronic resources even more than physical space in the library. There are plenty of electronic resources that are available to postgraduate students and in case some guidance is needed the students can contact the library. On the TU-K homepage, click on ‘Library’ and ‘I-Repository’.
The library is prepared to carry out training on access and use of resources including referencing among other topics. Simply the library will conduct Information Literacy to ensure independence in search, selection, access and use of relevant and appropriate resources.
On publications, the library can collaborate with the Directorate of Research and Knowledge Exchange especially in identifying the predatory journals to avoid TUK researchers falling victim to publishing in those journals. This is important because after all the publications would be in the TUK Institutional Repository. Also the Library and Directorate of Research and Knowledge Exchange, in collaboration with reputable publishers, can organize for training on how to publish.
For more information, contact the Library (Dr. Sarah Kibugi, Director- Library and Learning Resources Services, firstname.lastname@example.org) .
