Graduate School Admissions

Overseas Students


Overseas applicants who are unable to travel to India, have the option of appearing for the Graduate School Admission examination in an online proctored mode on the scheduled date and time (IST) each year, provided they can submit proof of their overseas residency during the application process.

Furthermore, once the “overseas” option is exercised while applying, it cannot be altered or changed at a later stage.

We do not have specific English proficiency requirements. However, since all academic activities, including Graduate courses, labs and seminars are conducted in English, we expect the students to have good command of English (both written and oral).
