About School of Graduate Studies Universiti Putra Malaysia

At the School of Graduate Studies (SGS), it plays a key role at being a service and administrative centre to provide assistance to postgraduate students when registration at UPM and other processes involved after the completion of their studies. Since its establishment in 1978, it was given a bigger role as a service centre that possesses a status equal to that of a faculty at the University. From here, it holds the role of coordinating all postgraduate programmes, activities, and events at the Universiti Putra Malaya (UPM). In other words, it also puts effort into preserving a stable relationship between UPM and its graduates.

With approximately 265 fields of study that covers its Masters and PhD programmes, SGS helps to manage their 12,000 students that are placed within the 16 faculties and 9 institutes available.  SGS is known on a global level for the number of international students who make UPM as their study destination and they are currently from 80 countries worldwide.
