JNU Approved of Integrated MPhil/ PhD Programme

New Delhi:  'This is for the information of all that terms and conditions related to admission into M Phil/PhD programmes of JNU for the academic year 2018-19
 will be as per the Prospectus, 2018-19,' reads the latest update given by the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), in response to the objections raised against
varsity's decision to de-link integrated MPhil/ PhD programme. With only a week after the notification to scrap the integrated MPhil/ PhD Programme, JNU
 has now made it official that for the coming academic session the norms will remain same as per the prospectus released.
A week earlier, the University decided to de-link the integrated programme which meant students shall have to appear for another entrance examination for
 admission to PhD programme. This received strong opposition from students and teachers. ''Candidates who have applied for MPhil/PhD for the academic
year 2018-19 will be considered for MPhil programme only. The MPhil programme will now be a terminal degree as per the decision taken in the 144th Academic
 Council (AC) meeting held on December 1,' said a notification printed on admit cards for JNU Entrance Examination (JNUEE).
