Grants for research travel, relocation assistance, and fellowships are all part of the program. Additionally, according to IIT-Delhi, it offers a chance to make use of both institutions’ academic resources.


While it is not a requirement that all candidates possess a valid GATE, GRE, NET, CSIR score (or scores of any competitive entrance test), it is expected that successful applicants will have a good score in any of these exams to be competitive.

The institute clarified that candidates who meet all other eligibility requirements and have at least two years of professional work experience in lieu of a GATE score but do not have a valid GATE score or CSIR/UGC/DBT award may still be considered for admission to the joint PhD program.

If applicants have completed a bachelor’s or master’s degree program, or can demonstrate that they have studied full-time for at least two years at an Academy-accredited institution, then they may be deemed to have met the Academy’s English language proficiency requirements.

— English was the medium of instruction; and

— English was the medium of assessment; and

— the final year of study has been undertaken within the last five years.

Applicants must show proof that instruction and assessment were conducted in English in order for their English language proficiency to be determined based on previous research. This proof can be in the form of an official letter from the institution, confirmed on letterhead with a date, or an academic transcript.
