For a Ph.D. from ISEC
The Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC) offers two categories of Ph.D. programmes: Full- time (residential) for students and part-time (non-residential) for serving academicians and interested scholars.
ISEC is at present affiliated to Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore and Osmania Universities and the National Law School of India University for the award of Ph.D. degree. It is in the process of collaborating with IGNOU, Maastricht University and Central Asian University. Full-time residential Ph.D. course at ISEC normally takes about four years to complete. During the first 10 months, scholars are provided rigorous training through a pre-Ph.D. coursework followed by the dissertation work which commences in the eleventh month.
The doctoral scholars admitted under the programme are given fellowships for three years and provided with hostel facilities for up to five years. A separate hostel is available for women scholars. The programme is open to working candidates to pursue Ph.D. on a part-time basis. Preference is given to those working in the universities and institutions of higher learning and ISEC employees under the Faculty Improvement Programme.
Part-time candidates should pass the pre-Ph.D. course work. They are welcome to attend the classes, though attendance is not compulsory. The part-time Ph.D. admission does not carry any form of financial assistance from ISEC. Candidates are required to pay fees according to university norms and an annual fee of Rs. 3,000 to ISEC. The part-time scholars require on-campus stay for the period stipulated by the supervisor.
The candidates will be selected through an admission test, to be held on July 15, and subsequent interview.
The application form can be downloaded from the ISEC website: http://www.isec.ac.in.
The filled-in application form with the relevant enclosures should be submitted along with the application fee of Rs. 300 (Rs. 60 in the case of Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes) in the form of a demand draft drawn in favour of the Registrar, ISEC, Bangalore. Candidates who are awaiting their second year PG results may also apply.
Completed applications forms should reach the Registrar, Institute for Social and Economic Change, Prof. VKRV Road, Nagarabhavi, Bangalore-560 072 on or before May 15.
