Centre for Postgraduate Studies

Overview of Centre


Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPS) was established in 2009 to serve the postgraduate community of the University. CPS is responsible for the implementation, management and administration of graduate studies. This is done with the aim to provide quality academic services and assistance to students throughout their university experience from admission to graduation.

Apart from this, CPS 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 Centre serves as a central body for coordinating and promoting all postgraduate programmes. Currently there are 14 programmes offered; nine at the Master’s level and five at the PhD level. Our Postgraduate programmes have been recognised locally and internationally and the university has admitted postgraduate students from various countries, including those sponsored by governments and organisations.

The Centre 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.
