General information about studying at the School of Mathematics

The Tata Institute is a Deemed University and runs a Graduate Programme leading to award of a Ph.D. degree. Bright young students aspiring for a career of research in mathematics are invited to apply for Research Scholarships in the School of Mathematics of the Institute. With its distinguished faculty engaged in high quality research in a broad spectrum of areas, the School provides a stimulating environment for pursuing doctoral studies.

Research Scholars who are admitted to the Ph.D. program are paid a monthly fellowship. There is in addition an annual contingency education grant. Please click here to go to the University Cell webpage, which contains information about Deemed University rules and procedures as well as fellowship and contingency grant. Further, all Research Scholars (except those joining under the Day Scholar programme) are also eligible for hostel accommodation at nominal charges.

The Research Scholarships are tenable for a period up to five years for Ph.D. students and for
a period of up to six years for Integrated Ph.D. students, subject to annual review of performance. An additional year with reduced scholarship may be sanctioned in exceptional cases. During the first year, introductory courses are given on basic areas of mathematics, and the second year is allocated for preparatory studies for pursuing doctoral work.

Please click here for information concerning the admission procedure for the PhD and the Integrated PhD programs at the School of Mathematics, TIFR, Mumbai. For information about the selection process for admission to the programs at TIFR CAM, Bengaluru, and ICTS, Bengaluru, we refer you to the websites of those centers - CAM, ICTS.

The minimum eligibility criterion for admission to the Ph.D. programme is a Master's degree in any of Mathematics/Statistics/Science/Technology (M.A. / M.Sc. / M.Math / M.Stat / M.E. / M.Tech.). The minimum eligibility criterion for admission to the Integrated Ph.D. programme is a Bachelor's degree in any of Mathematics/Statistics/Science/Technology (B.A. / B.Sc. / B.Math. / B.Stat. / B.E. / B.Tech.). Students without a Master's degree will generally be admitted to the Integrated Ph.D. program and will obtain an M.Sc. degree along the way subject to the completion of all requirements. Students with a four-year Bachelor's degree may be considered for admission to the Ph.D. programme.
