Visit the official university website to find detailed information about Ph.D. admission processes, including exam dates, syllabus, and application procedures.
Yes, hostel facilities are offered to full-time research scholars, subject to availability.
The Ph.D. program’s duration spans from a minimum of three years (thirty-six months), including coursework, to a maximum of six years from the date of admission. An additional two years may be granted upon University Research Committee approval, not exceeding a total of eight years. Female Ph.D. scholars and individuals with disabilities can request a two-year extension, capped at ten years from the date of admission. Women scholars may also receive up to 240 days of Maternity Leave/Child Care Leave. Regular contact with the Ph.D. supervisor is expected, and leave requires prior approval. In cases of non-completion within the timeframe, re-registration is necessary, following admission guidelines and applicable fees.

In the Ph.D. program, there are two categories of scholars:

Full-Time Research Scholars: These are candidates who are enrolled in the Ph.D. degree program and dedicate themselves full-time to complete the program’s requirements. This category includes both national and foreign candidates, with or without scholarships, as well as those receiving financial support from various government or semi-government agencies, participating in sponsored research projects, or receiving stipends or fellowships from the university. There are provisions for substantial research fellowships, ranging from Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 25,000 per month for deserving Ph.D. scholars. Full-time research scholars are typically involved in teaching, adhering to university schedules, and following faculty-related policies.

Part-Time Research Scholars: These scholars are working professionals who pursue a Ph.D. degree while fulfilling their professional responsibilities. This category includes individuals employed at the university, those working in government departments, research organizations, public sector undertakings, registered companies, and faculty at reputed educational institutions. Part-time research scholars can also include individuals working full-time in an R&D project within the university. While in a part-time capacity, they may transition to full-time status upon completing the project. However, to be accepted as a Ph.D. research scholar, these individuals must follow the same admission procedures as generally applicable. Part-time scholars are required to submit a “No Objection Certificate” from their employer, indicating permission for part-time study, availability of sufficient time for research, and a commitment to grant leave if needed for research work.

Yes, they can pursue Ph.D. as part-time scholars with a No Objection Certificate from their employer.
The change of a Ph.D. supervisor is subject to approval by the University Research Committee (URC) and can occur under specific circumstances. These circumstances include the unfortunate events of a supervisor’s death or illness, as well as when a Ph.D. supervisor resigns from the university. In the latter case, a research scholar may still complete their thesis under the same supervisor’s guidance if it aligns with the university’s Ph.D. regulations. If necessary, the university may assign a co-guide. Furthermore, if a research supervisor is unwilling to continue in their role, the candidate may be assigned a new supervisor to ensure effective supervision throughout their academic journey at SPSU.

The credit requirement for Ph.D. coursework is 12 credits.
The process of Synopsis Presentation and Approval in the Ph.D. program involves several critical steps. Once a candidate registers for the Ph.D. program, they are eligible to present the synopsis of their proposed research, which must be recommended by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) to the Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) for approval. If the DRC approves the research topic and framework, the scholar can commence their research work. Any minor changes in the thesis title must be approved by the DRC, and significant changes in the research area require a new synopsis presentation within six months of the previous meeting. Upon approval, three copies of the final synopsis, signed by the supervisor, are submitted to the Ph.D. coordinator. Ph.D. scholars are expected to present their synopsis within one semester after completing coursework. If this is not possible, they may apply for an extension through the Dean, explaining the reasons and obtaining a recommendation from the Research Advisory Committee. The Dean can grant an extension of up to six months. Failure to complete the synopsis presentation within two semesters after coursework may result in the cancellation of the Ph.D. program registration.
  • Pre Ph.D. Thesis Presentation

  • Plagiarism Check

  • Thesis Evaluation
  • Viva-Voce Conduct
  • Timely Evaluation

Yes, scholars must publish one research paper in refereed journals and make two paper presentations in conferences/seminars before submitting the thesis.

The Ph.D. thesis submission guidelines outline the process for Ph.D. scholars to submit their research work. Regular monitoring by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) and Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) is conducted according to university regulations. Full-time scholars can submit their thesis after a minimum of three years, including coursework, while part-time scholars can do so after 4.5 years, provided they have met all mandatory requirements. The checklist for a successful Ph.D. program includes coursework completion, progress reports, publication of research papers, a pre-Ph.D. thesis seminar presentation, approval of the thesis abstract, recommendations from RAC and DRC, submission of a plagiarism report, and final submission of the thesis in specified formats. The Viva-Voce examination is held for scholars whose theses are recommended by external examiners, and if a scholar fails, they can reappear after three months with DRC approval.

Review the department-wise list of faculty members on the official website and contact them directly for specific research area inquiries.

The Ph.D. supervisor plays a crucial role in recommending five to six external examiners, typically Professors or Associate Professors from reputable institutes, to the controller of examinations. From this list, the Vice Chancellor nominates two external examiners for the assessment of the Ph.D. thesis. One of these nominated external examiners is invited by the Vice Chancellor to conduct the Viva-Voce examination for the Ph.D. research scholar.
Ph.D. registration can be canceled in several instances, including failure to complete coursework, receiving ‘unsatisfactory’ progress reports for two consecutive semesters, not submitting the thesis within the maximum registration period, unauthorized six-week absences without approved leave, failure to pay academic fees, voluntary program withdrawal, engaging in unfair practices during coursework, and instances of misconduct based on URC and RAC recommendations.
Ph.D. research scholars are closely monitored by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) and Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) in accordance with the university’s Ph.D. regulations. Full-time scholars can submit their thesis after a minimum of three years, including coursework, while part-time scholars can do so after 4.5 years, provided they meet all mandatory Ph.D. requirements. The assessment checklist includes coursework completion, regular six-month progress reports, publication of research papers in recognized journals and conferences, a pre-Ph.D. thesis seminar presentation, approval of a 300-word abstract, recommendations from RAC and DRC for final thesis submission, submission of a plagiarism report, and the provision of four copies of the thesis for evaluation. Additionally, two hardbound copies and a CD in PDF format are to be submitted after the Viva Voce examination, along with a signed abstract and executive summary by the Ph.D. Supervisor and research scholar, including key terms and a list of abbreviations.
Upon successful completion of the Viva-Voce examination and receiving the recommendation for the Ph.D. degree from the Doctoral Research Committee (DRC) followed by ratification by the University Research Committee (URC), the research scholar will be issued a provisional Ph.D. degree certificate. The date of the Viva-Voce examination is considered the date of the Ph.D. degree award, and the formal degree is typically conferred during the university’s convocation ceremony.
