Postgraduate Entry

  • 3 -year bachelor degree, 4-year professional bachelor degree, or in the case of law students, a 5-year integrated bachelor degree from an approved Indian university (NOOSR rankings, 2013) with the following grades:
  1. Section 1 institutions – First Division pass with 60% or CGPA 3.0/4 or CGPA 6.0/10
  2. Section 2 institutions – First Division pass with at least 65% or CGPA 3.2/4 or CGPA 6.5/10
  3. Section 3 institutions – First Division pass with at least 70% or CGPA 3.5/4 or CGPA 7.0/10
  • With regard to the above, please note the following: Admissions tutors should bear in mind that there is tremendous diversity within the higher education system in India, such that the grades required for entry to an Indian University will vary according to the institution attended as well as the programme applied for. It is very difficult to achieve high scores in Delhi University, especially in Arts, and Social Science courses such as History, Sociology, Political Science along with Economics and Law rarely achieve 60%. The state of Maharashtra employs a hard marking system. As a rule it is difficult to achieve 60% for Engineering, Architecture and Law at Mumbai University & Pune University, so flexibility in entry grades is encouraged. Flexibility is also encouraged for applicants from selected law programmes including those from Delhi, Pune, Mumbai Universities, Government Law College, Kolkata, NALSAR, NLSIU, ILS and Amity Law School – in these cases, 55% is normally acceptable for courses which require a UK 2:1 equivalent.
  • MBA candidates are required to provide evidence of at least five years’ strong managerial work experience since graduation of a supervisory or managerial nature. A GMAT score of 600 or above may be required
  • Applicants for MSc Finance related programmes need to show evidence of having studied a selection of econometrics, advanced / higher mathematics, probability & statistics to a high level (60%+) ideally in the 2nd year or final year of their Bachelor degree. 1st year modules are unlikely to be of suitable level to meet entry requirements
  • PhD candidates will require a masters degree with 1st Division (60%+) with research exposure from a recognised Indian university in addition to a bachelor degree with 1st Division (also see notes above regarding grade flexibility)
