The Graduate Support Hub (GSH) is a unit within the Department of Research and Innovation. It endeavours to facilitate and coordinate the processes and activities aimed at developing and supporting postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows. This support enables them to become part of the University community and to contribute to the University’s strategic vision of being a leading research-intensive university in Africa.
In its recruitment of postgraduate candidates, the GSH focuses on providing information on research and funding opportunities, promoting postgraduate education and research productivity, and improving research supervision. It also facilitates research skills develpment and workplace readiness, and promotes scholarly exchange with peers.
The GSH collaborates with the academic staff in the University's nine faculties and one business school, as well as with the support units in the University Library Services, to ensure positive research training experiences that will lead to relevant and high-quality research outputs that address national, regional and global research challenges.
