Postgraduate studies play a vital role in developing the skills necessary for success in a knowledge-driven economy, both locally and internationally.

In order to foster postgraduate students, the Postgraduate Funding Office (PGFO) and Postgraduate Centre provide holistic support to postgraduate students and, in particular, ensure that potential students have access to all available funding.

The PGFO is responsible for management and administration of postgraduate and postdoctoral awards. It also monitors the postgraduate and postdoctoral sectors and the development of policies and procedures for financial and other types of support.

The office is situated on the upper level of the Otto Beit Building on the Upper Campus, within easy walking distance from most faculties and departments.
