More Information:

An M.Sc. is generally of one and half years duration. An M.Sc. student is required to complete 6 courses of 18 credits in Physics. Besides these courses, a student has to submit a dissertation equivalent to 18 credits on his/her research findings.

An M. Phil. is generally of two years duration. An M.Phil. student is required to complete 6 courses of 18 credits in Physics. Besides these courses, a student has to submit a dissertation equivalent to 30 credits on his/her research findings.

A student of Ph. D. program normally takes three to four years to obtain a Ph. D. degree. A Ph. D. student is required to complete 3 courses of 9 credits in Physics. Besides these courses, a student has to submit a dissertation equivalent to 45 credits on his/her research findings.
