Apply to the PhD Program


For PhD Candidates

Interviews will be held on 28, 29 and 30 November for the December intake 2018.

Step 1: EOI

The EOI stage has ended.

Please click on the Expression of Interest (EOI) Form to enable us to adequately evaluate your background, academic record and research interests. If your EOI form is found to be suitable, you will receive an email indicating you are able to proceed to Step 2 of the application stage.

If your EOI Form is found to be suitable, you will need to download and complete the full application form, Form A. Candidates who are successful in this EOI stage will be invited to go Step-2 once the EOI stage is completed. Contained in this invitation email will be a unique Form A Number (FAN). This email will be sent only after the EOI stage is completed

Step 2: Form A

If your EOI form is found to be suitable, you will be notified via email and you will receive a unique FAN number. You need the FAN number to upload your Form-A online. At this stage you will need to upload your transcripts, publications, certificates, etc and make project selections too. For logging in to the Form A site, use your unique Form A Number (FAN). Do not give this FAN to anyone else. It is for your use only. Moreover, you can use your FAN only once. At the site, you will need to upload your Form A as well as copies of all of your academic transcripts, publications GATE score sheet, and other supporting documentation. Remember again that you will only have one opportunity to use your FAN to login to the site to upload all of your documentation related to the applications-process.

So it will be most optimal if you collect all documentation relating to your application before visiting the site.

Step 3: Short-listing for Interview

If your Form-A is found to be suitable, you will be notified via email and you will receive an interview invitation. The Interview short-list will be announced only after the Form-A stage is complete.

Step 4: Interviews and Successful Candidates
