Joint Degree Programmes
Collaborative Doctoral Programmes with foreign universities/institutes shall be initiated within the models suggested below. The MoUs with the interested institutes shall be signed with additional clauses decided on a case-to-case basis by the Institute Research Committee.
Models for Collaborative Doctoral Programmes with Foreign Universities
- Joint Degree
- Students must meet the admission requirements and need to complete the degree requirements of their home institution.
- They will receive the degree only from their home institution with a remark that the program has been completed jointly with the host institution.
- Dual Award Degree
- Students must meet the admission requirements and complete the degree requirements of both the institutions.
- They receive a separate degree from both the institutions.
Conditions common for both of the above models
- Students must have a supervisor at each institution.
- They must spend minimum 6 months over the entire duration of the program at the host institution.
- They shall pay tuition fee at the home institution only.

PhD students of other institutes/universities can choose an IIT Roorkee faculty as their co-supervisor. The IITR faculty should follow the guidelines provided here and send the forms to email@example.com with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PhD students of IIT Roorkee can include an external supervisor (inclusive of an international supervisor) through the Finalization of Supervisors Form. Addition of a supervisor at a later stage (but before their comprehensive examination) is possible through the special SRC recommendation form (Point 8 A).
