ICTS Bangalore Integrated PhD & PhD Admission 2022 Eligibility Criteria

  • For the PhD program: Master’s or Integrated Master’s degree in Physics of total duration not less than 5 years.
  • For the Integrated PhD program: Bachelor’s (undergraduate) degree in Science, Engineering or Medicine of duration not less than 3 years. 
  • Students whose final examination results for their qualifying degree are not declared by the time of joining (but expected in the same year) will be admitted on a provisional basis, subject to the passing of the relevant degree examination.
  • The admission will be regularised on the production of mark sheets/provisional/final degree certificate of the qualifying degree examination. If the candidate’s qualifying degree is a Bachelor’s, payment of fellowship will be withheld till the relevant degree certificate is submitted.
  • If the candidate’s qualifying degree is a Master’s (and if the candidate already has a Bachelor’s), payment of fellowship will be at a lower scale (IPhD) until the Master’s degree certificate is submitted. In both cases, once the admission is regularised, arrears corresponding to the full amount of fellowship will be paid calculated from the date of joining.

  • JEST: Rank up to 100
