In his presentation during the seminar, Prof. John Obiri, the Director of Postgraduate Studies, discussed on how the Directorate enhances the quality of research in MM UST.
'The Directorate has a Board of Management whose work is to strengthen and facilitate research, provide support, strengthen postgraduate scholarships and ensure that graduates are able to bridge gaps between them and professionals', he said.


The Directorate is also responsible for advising and admitting postgraduate students, examination and records management as well as ratifies proposals, supervise students, and approve deferment of studies or change of study mode. Prof. Obiri highlighted that lack of fees, marriage, lapsed work-study leave and extended holiday breaks as some of the reasons that heavily affect postgraduate students and their studies. He also insisted on the importance of research collaboration and networking.
