  • You can register for your part time Ph.D. When you are working in a office you can apply through your office to the university. The university will be giving notification for registering for doctorate. At that time you can apply for part time Ph.D. First of all you have to contact the department professor under whom you want to do your Ph.D. He will tell you the procedure. In Andhra University my brother got registered for Ph.D in Engineering College as explained above. So you can contact the department in which you want to get registered for your Ph.D.

  • As you have not indicated your subject, it is little bit difficult to give comprehensive information. If you are a student of humanities or commerce stream, it would be relatively easy to take admission in part-time PhD. However, if you are a student of laboratory-based subject like Physics or Chemistry, it would be difficult to go for part-time PhD, if you are not working in educational field (teacher/lecturer in school/college).

    As you are living in Andhra Pradesh, you may check Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University (www.braou.ac.in), whether your subject is available for doctoral research, or not. You may also check IGNOU (www.ignou.ac.in). Thereafter, you have to chose your guide and convince him/her to accept you under him/her as part-time research student. Only then you should go for registration.
