M.Phil and Doctoral Education

The department has just initiated a one-year program in M.Phil. in Genetics for candidates curious to understand the nuances of research before starting on a Ph.D.

Students with Master’s degree in any area of sciences with an aptitude to work in the broad research programs of the department are selected for the M.Phil/Ph.D program based on a national level entrance test/interview and have to complete a 12 credit course before they can proceed with their experimental work. M.Phil course culminates with the completion of a short project work followed by a viva-voce examination, while Ph.D work generally spans over five to six years followed by a rigorous thesis defense and viva-voce examination.
