 Round 2

Selected applicants will advance to Round 2. In this round, applicants will need to do the following:

Faculty Interview (In Person or Remotely) 

*This is the most important part of the application process. Applicants who get to this round will have an interview with a member of the faculty for their respective schools. There is no set format for these interviews, but it is a chance for the faculty to ask the applicant questions and the applicant to find out more about a programme from someone directly. Emphasis in these interviews is placed on oral communication, confidence, curiosity, clarity of expression, and nuanced thinking.

Some applicants may be asked to complete a second interview**. This does not mean that the applicant is a weak applicant. Sometimes faculty request an additional opinion or want the applicant to speak to faculty member aligned to the applicant’s interests.

* Some programmes require Delhi / NCR applicants to come for an on-campus interview. Please see your respective programmes for more information.

** The second interview will be held in the following Admissions Cycle.

 Round 3

Applicants who get through Round 2 will be given a Provisional Offer of Admission pending their Graduation Results and any additional information required by a school.

Successful applicants will have seven (7) days (including weekends) to accept or decline the offer. If an applicant declines the offer or does not respond before the end of the seven days, their application is declared inactive. 

Successful applicants are required to pay the Refundable Registration Fee to secure their seat.

Once the Graduation Results are confirmed, applicants will be given their Final Offer of Admissions.
