dc.description.abstractThe role of the universities as engines of knowledge cannot can it be realised with low quality teaching and research output. The underlying assumption is that universities are capable of providing adequate foundation for the complexities of the expected knowledge economy through postgraduate degree programmes in which research is central. However, the quality of higher education and research dimension presents a concern especially in the developing countries. On the other hand, postgraduate studies are expected to play a vital role in contributing to the critical mass of human resources, much need to drive the global economy. This article focuses on the postgraduate supervision which is indeed a high level and complex form of teaching in postgraduate programmes. Although universities have policies and guidelines for their post-graduate supervision, they are confronting a drastically changing learning and teaching environment, characterised by increased demand, complex career expectations from the market and students and a sense of faster completion rate. With the new dynamics in the higher education sector everywhere, there is an obvious need for a paradigm shift to meet the demand, while at the same time maintain quality in postgraduate programmes and supervision. The purpose of this article is to bring into the fore the importance of quality control in postgraduate supervision, the challenges that affect the process and also suggest some strategies for redress.en_US
