The population considered for this evaluative study was comprised of scholars that went abroad for Postgraduate studies, which formed the sample space of 24 people. The sample frame remains as the population of the sample space, which is being homogeneous to give birth to 20 people that was adopted as sample size. The data gathered were screened through reliability statistical tool of KMO and Barlett’s test, while analysis was done with the use of SPSS. The result obtained which was depicted as P-value at 0.003 less than 0.05 at 95% confidence interval, shows significant positive effect of TETFUND’s postgraduate training on knowledge transfer. The study concluded that the replication of overseas impartation styles are yet to be fully implemented. It was recommended among other things that post-graduate scholars should have collaboration with local industry, as well as giving free technical assistance relating to each scholar’s field of study, with a view to assisting national development.
