This is why it is permanently thinking over the improvement and development so as to conform to the university's strategy of focusing on scientific research and graduate programs, to expand them, and to increase the number of admissions from graduate students year after year. More than 1000 students were admitted to various graduate programs of higher diplomas, Master’s and PhD for the academic year 1438/1439 AH; hence, the total number of the students in the various graduate programs reached more than 3200 students, and we will graduate 550 male students, 337 female students during the academic year 1437/1438 AH.

The postgraduate studies programs’ students have a great responsibility towards science. It is reliability necessitates its bearer to be diligent and honest in terms of scientific documentation; taking into consideration ethics of scientific work. My advice is to make great efforts to benefit from the expertise of faculty members or supervisors, as well as the services provided to the students by the university to come up with solid and modern research projects that contribute to advancing the development of our beloved country and to be reflected in its vision 2030.

Since its establishment in 1413 AH, the Postgraduate Studies Deanship has been focusing on preparing qualified scientific and professional cadres in various fields of knowledge.
