Study from home, office or any other place
Students of YSU are not required to mark regular attendance at a physical premise. Off campus research methodology involves doing your research and other supportive work from anywhere in the world. The required teaching will take place through webinars or skype and scholar – guide interactions will also be online. The working professionals need not leave their jobs. They can engage in research work during free hours each day and in the late evenings or early mornings as per mutual convenience between students and guides.
All enrolled research scholars will be provided with a list of reference books and international journals according to their research & thesis topic. Students can also look for reference material in our e-library facility from where they can download book chapters or articles or research publications. Students can also purchase books from our authorized book vendor or from YSU by paying additional study material cost.
There are guidelines for periodic submissions of progress reports at various stages of the online off campus research, which students must follow religiously or the research program will get delayed. All the necessary guidelines must be adhered to in order to complete the PhD dissertation work in stipulated 2.5 to 3 years’ time.
Admissions to Doctoral and Post – doctoral Fellowship Programs
A research scholar can enroll for doctoral or post-doctoral research degree anytime of the year irrespective of regular admission sessions. Whenever he is ready by fulfilling the required admission criteria (read criteria for doctoral and post-doctoral research program under Student Corner), he can apply for the doctoral courses by selecting the subject and his prior learning as well as work experience.
The research process starts from the date of successful enrollment. The selection of research advisor or guide will depend upon the subject and likely topic of the research. The guide help students in finalizing the topic which must be a unique topic in which no live research has taken place so far.
