All students pursuing PhD from Lucknow University will be able to participate in the course work from next year. The decision was taken in a meeting of all the heads of the departments held under the chairmanship of vice-chancellor, Prof M. K. Mishra on Monday, 7th May, 2012. Since the course work is an important aspect of Ph.D, students who are already enrolled will be given a chance to do the course work. If they pass, they will be given a certificate by the university.
In case of failure, students will be given another year to clear it, said a university official. The meeting also decided to carry out Ph.D admissions by giving direct entry to Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) candidates. As per the university, the remaining seats will be filled through the common entrance test (CET) for PhD to be conducted by RML Avadh University on June 1. On this many heads pointed out that there are some subjects like public administration, women studies, tourism, and Jyotir Vigyan which are not included in the CET. For this, it was decided that the university will conduct its own entrance exam to fill up the seats. Discussions were also held on scrapping the courses, which are not approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). On this, the heads were directed to provide a list of such courses running in their departments latest by May 9 to the registrar. The university will then request UGC to allow them run the courses. However, any course apart from undergraduate courses, which will fail to admit 40% of the total student intake, will be suspended. LU is also mulling to take M.Phil route for PhD admissions from next year.
