Admissions to Ph.D. programs at Amity University campuses are conducted twice a year, for January and July sessions.
A Ph.D. program is offered in two modes- Full time and Part time and not in a distance learning mode. Hence, coursework, participation in various interactions, submission of progress reports through presentations etc. on regular basis is mandatory during the program.
A Full-time Ph.D. scholar shall mean a candidate devoting full time for completing the requirements of the program and a part- time Ph.D. scholar shall mean a candidate who is devoting a part of his time towards the pursuit of the program while discharging his official / employment obligations.
Hence, Part time Candidates are expected to ensure they get adequate organisational help and a relevant setup at their workplace that also enables them to engage in research work.
Ph.D. full time is for minimum 3 years and Ph.D. part time for minimum 4 ½ years. Maximum duration in case of both the modes is 6 years.
Amity encourages interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas and knowledge in various related fields. Consequently, it allows scholars to appoint a Co-Guide from outside Amity University as per university rules. The main Guide for the scholar during the Ph.D. program will be from Amity University, appointed as per the research topic and Guide availability. Ph.D full time enthusiasts have the scope to work as research fellows in the various ongoing prestigious research projects in the university.
