Students are required to complete 48 credits within the first four semesters consisting of (introductory/topical/elective/reading) courses (20-30 credits) and research projects (for remaining credits). The specific course requirements for a student will be flexibly modeled depending on the student's background and research direction the student wishes to pursue, and can be determined by the academic mentor and the associated committee. Course work will consist of

  • Int-PhD and PhD courses offered at TIFR-CAM
  • Courses offered at ICTS (Mathematics, Physics)
  • Elective and topics courses offered at CAM and ICTS

At the end of fourth semester, the students will register for PhD and work towards writing a research thesis. Successful candidates will receive a degree through the Mathematics Subject Board of the TIFR Graduate School.
