Post Graduate Student Status Programme (PGSSP)

Working professionals who are employed at Hyderabad and have a desire to pursue higher studies on a part-time basis can apply to the Post Graduate Student Status Programme (PGSSP). Admissions are open in Monsoon and Spring semesters every year.

The post-graduate status can be accorded to a professional on the basis of his/her academic and experience record. Once someone is awarded the PG status, he/she can take a maximum of two courses at the institute every semester. This provides him/her with the opportunity to acquire new knowledge in chosen areas without committing to a formal programme. The courses taken under the PGSSP scheme can count towards a formal degree from the institute, should the student join one of the full-time or part-time programmes subsequently.
