Ph.D. – Entry Qualifications and Requirements:

  1.  B.Sc. Four Year Special Degree in the relevant discipline with first or second class honors from a recognized University.
    Research proposal submitted by the candidate will be evaluated by a committee nominated by Board of Study Physical Science (BSPS) for its suitability. An outside expert in the field will be invited for the evaluation process.If the discipline is outside the area of specialization (e.g. B.Sc. Physics Special Degree candidate registering for the Ph.D. in the field of Physical Chemistry) candidate must follow minimum of three credit unit courses* recommended by the supervisor and should obtain a grade point of three or above (GP ≥ 3) for each course during his/her study period.A presentation based on the research project must be made by the candidate in each year. This is a requirement for the annual registration extensions.
