    What is the maximum time required to complete PhD?

    I have finished my M.A in History and I want to do my PHD in that. What are the ways to get into PHD? How much time it takes to complete? Do we need any work experience to do this PHD or only Post graduation degree is enough? Can anybody help me in getting this information?

    For PHD programmes in any university you ahve to snit in the written test conducted by the university
    If you clear the written test than you will be called for the interview

    If you clear the interview than you will get a seat for PHD in that university or college

    PHD can be completed in min 2 years and max 5 years

    If you have scored more than 555 marks than you shopuld also appear in the UGC NET exams
    Next UGC NET exams will be held in dec 2012

    IF you clear the UGC net exam you will be eligible for lecturer jobs in universities and colleges

    I've heard of a few very people getting a Ph.D. in 2 1/2 years. . . but they also had a master's degree first. The norm in my field is 4-5 if you already have a master's (usually 1 1/2-3 years) and 5-7 without one. If things perpetually keep going wrong or you have some other issues to deal with, that 4-5 I mentioned if you already have a master's can definitely be 8-10. . . I've known a few people over the years that's happened to. No, it had nothing to do with their work ethic in any case -- it was a Murphy's Law situation.

    If you're talking about going straight from a bachelor's to a Ph.D., you have to factor in that you have a bunch of graduate-level classes you'll need to take -- it's probably going to be at least 60-70 hours if it's like anywhere I've been. Full-time is generally 9 hours in grad school, and I've never really seen anyone take more than 12 hours -- 9, really, is often plenty of work given than you're probably also trying to do some research and might well have some teaching duties as well to manage. You're probably doing the same research project the entire time that way as opposed to someone doing both a master's and a Ph.D. project, but the course requirements are still the same. . . you can bring in courses from a master's for a Ph.D., usually, so all isn't quite lost if you go that route.

    Hello friend,
    The PhD will be completed from 2-6 years of study in this course you have to pursue your

    research i.e. if you publish your research in the given time you are given with a graduate


    You can also do PhD in distant education while you are working.

    If you are able to submit your research after 2 years of your study then you are awarded

    with a degree there itself.

    This also may depend on the university under which you are doing your PhD.

    Thanking you,

    Hope you found information useful.
