Post Doctoral Program offered by the Institute of Research and Innovation (IRI) at Apex Professional University approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

About the Programme

Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) is a postdoctoral degree that is awarded to people who have made exceptional and outstanding contributions to the world, in their particular field of study. Although ‘Doctor of Philosophy’ or Ph.D. is considered as the highest degree in many parts of the world, D.Sc. is one step above Ph.D. The course is majorly an honorary degree that is awarded to eminent knowledgeable individuals or doctorates who have contributed significant cognizance to the world with their research.

Candidates must understand that Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) is undeniably the highest academic award a person can get, and therefore not a lot of institutes are actually competent to grant such a degree.

We look for applicants who are curious, determined and creative. We take into account special talents or successes that might not appear on a transcript. If this sounds like you, choose APU.
