A doctoral degree with an academic concentration is known as a Ph.D. A  Ph.D. programme typically lasts three years, with candidates having to complete it in five to six years. The length of the course, however, may differ from one institute to the next. To be eligible for any program from list of Ph.D. courses, applicants must have a master’s degree. 

Candidates can study for a Ph.D. in any field. In a Ph.D. programme, students must choose a topic or subject, conduct extensive study on it, and respond to any questions they may have.

Candidates could formerly pursue a Ph.D. programme through distant education; however, according to a UGC circular released in 2017, a Ph.D. programme completed through distance education would no longer be recognized.

While pursuing a Ph.D. programme, candidates who have passed admission exams such as the UGC NET, GATE, JEST, and others are frequently granted fellowships. In addition, universities such as IGNOU and Delhi University (DU) provide fellowships to students pursuing full-time Ph.D. programmes.
