Difference between regular and part-time Ph.D. – Perspective for working professionals
Ph.D. is the highest university degree that is conferred after a course of study by university. To pursue long term academic goals, one generally opts for a Ph.D. degree.
The majority of registered universities in India offer full time or part-time Ph.D. Significant difference between part-time and full-time Ph.D. is the duration of the program. Part-time as well as a regular Ph.D. has to be completed in 3 years. Part-Time Ph.D. gives individuals more flexibility in terms of and financially manageable. For universities offering full-time Ph.D., they offer a residential program where students are in constant touch with their mentors and there is relatively more value creation as the focus is solely on research.
Working professionals usually opt for a part-time Ph.D. Government employees who pursue Ph.D. have to take up the 4-year program. It is mandatory to submit a No-Objection certificate (NOC) while joining the university. For government employees, NOC is usually issued for 4 years in such cases. So an individual who holds a government job has to pursue a 4year Ph.D. program.
People working in the private sector, it is advisable to opt for a regular 3 years Ph.D. program. They can complete their research off-site. This gives them flexibility in terms of time.
