Doctoral Students of Bharathiar University Choose their Guides
Post-graduates with or without experience from any part of India can apply for Ph. D. at the Bharathiar University on a part time basis. Chairing the meeting of the university’s Senate on Friday, Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam said that this was applicable to those belonging to both the arts and science streams.
“However, each one of them will have to personally come to the university to register. The candidate will be interviewed by a panel consisting of the Head of the Department of the subject the candidate has chosen, a subject expert and Director of the Research and Development Department of the university,” said the Vice-Chancellor.
The candidate would also have to appear once a year before a review committee that would assess his or her progress. Those with M. Phil. degree would be given three years to complete their thesis while those without would get four years.
The University had also planned to develop a guide bank wherein qualified guides in various subjects would be registered. The list would be posted on the website of the university. The candidates would be free to choose their guides depending on convenience and proximity.
“Bharathiar University does not have enough guides for this purpose. Hence we will access guides from all over India to help the doctoral candidates,” Mr. Thiruvasagam added.
A recommendation was also made at the meeting to conduct a common entrance test to fill the free seats at colleges. “The university will hold the test where eligible and deserving candidates can appear. Once the students have cleared, they will be allotted to the colleges. At least 10 seats will be filled in such a way.
Deciding whether to allot more free seats is up to the colleges,” he said.
An orientation in pedagogy would be conducted at four centres for teachers engaging M. Phil. classes in the last week of January 2008, he said.
Application Form Submission 16 Dec 2020 to 16 Jan 2021.
