At AUD, MPhil and PhD degrees are granted at all the schools of the University, other than the School of Undergraduate Studies. 


Admissions to the MPhil programmes occur once a year in July-August. Admissions to the PhD programmes generally happen twice a year, in July-August and January-February. 


The number of seats available in each school for research may vary year to year.  Cutting-edge, unconventional and interdisciplinary research in new and established fields is welcome and encouraged at AUD.
