UGC to allow students to pursue PhD after 4 year undergraduate course

University Grants Commission, UGC has recently announced its new regulations and eligibility criteria for students who are seeking PhD Admissions. As per the new guidelines issued by UGC India, students can now pursue a PhD after the completion of their four-year undergraduate degree programme.

Based on these new regulations, UGC has stated that students who secure a minimum CGPA of 7.5 out of 10 in the four-year undergraduate programme, would become eligible for PhD Admissions without having to complete a master’s degree course.

The commission is expected to release the University Grants Commission (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Award of PhD Degree) Regulations 2022 by the end of this month — June. These regulations would most likely come into effect from the new academic session of 2022 to 2023.

“Encouraging four-year undergraduate students with research bent mind to do PhD is important to improve the research ecosystems in our Higher Education Institutes. That is why we are permitting 4-year UG students who have a CGPA of 7.5 and above to be eligible for PhD Admissions,” stated UGC Chairperson M Jagadesh Kumar.

The four-year undergraduate programme is an initiative that will be reintroduced in HEI’s as part of the National Education Policy, NEP 2020. As per UGC, the students who achieve a 7.5 CGPA out of 10 at the end of their fourth year (8th semester) will be eligible to apply for PhD Admissions. Students from the SC, ST, OBC, EWS and PwD sections would be given a relaxation of 0.5 CGPA in order to apply.

Students must note that in case they have secured a CGPA less than 7.5 out of 10, then one year of a Master’s degree is compulsory for them in order to become eligible for PhD Admissions. The Complete regulations are expected to be released by the commission soon.
