FAQ

What fields of research can I do my PhD research in ?

The candidate applying for the TIFR admission for Ph.D. research would have to declare the subject he/she is applying for now, after the candidate cleared the entrance examination. They will be provided with options to choose his/her field of research.

Do I have to choose specific department at the time of application ?

Yes, you’ll be provided with an option to choose a specific department at the time of application. The selection will be based on the written test and the interview you’ll be giving.

If my background training is in a different stream, can I still do my Ph.D. in other field?

The qualification for Ph.D. students is B.Sc. and M.Sc in the relevant fields. The coursework mandated for students with these two qualifications is of course different. If you have a degree in a different (science/engineering) stream, you can still do a Ph.D. in other fields if you are selected through the Admissions process. The coursework you will be required to do at TIFR will be decided when you are admitted, depending on your coursework during the degree you enter TIFR with.
