Centre for Postgraduate Studies and Research

Overview of School

Faculty Introduction

Centre for Postgraduate Studies and Research (CPSR) is a new centre formed in November 2018 after merging the Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPS) with Research Management Centre (RMC). Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPS) which was established in 2009, has been renamed Postgraduate Studies Unit to continue serving the postgraduate community of the University; while Research Management Centre (RMC) which was established in 2009 has become Research Management Unit to continue supporting the University’s research. CPSR strives to create an environment, which stimulates and encourages both intellectual and social exchange among postgraduate students, the research staff and faculty members.  

Postgraduate Studies Unit

The unit is responsible for the implementation, management and administration of graduate studies. We do this by providing quality academic services and assistance to students throughout their university experience from admission to graduation.

Apart from this, the unit also commits to provide a conducive environment by maintaining communication with relevant divisions and faculties to ensure the postgraduate programmes are well administered, monitored and assessed to achieve the highest quality in graduate education. This unit serves as a central body for coordinating and promoting all postgraduate programmes. Currently there are more than ten programmes offered; five at the Masters level and five at the PhD level. Our Postgraduate programmes have been recognised internationally and the university has admitted postgraduate students from various countries, including those sponsored by governments and organisations.

The unit encourages innovative learning via research, colloquiums, seminars, workshops and trainings by merging the academic and industry expertise. This is to ensure IUKL graduates can generate excellent academic and research outcomes and contribute in ensuring the sustainability of the environment, society and nation.


To become an academic centre of excellence in postgraduate studies and multidisciplinary research.


To nurture, promote and enhance academic advancement in graduate education and strengthen the University’s research culture and environment, in the pursuit of academic and research excellence.
