The proposed fees cover two degrees - the Master of Philosophy (<span data-scayt_word="MPhil" data-scaytid="8">MPhil</span>) degree and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree for Full-Time and Part-Time students.</p><p>3. For <span data-scayt_word="MPhil" data-scaytid="10">MPhil</span>, three categories of fees are proposed – for non-laboratory <span data-scayt_word="programmes" data-scaytid="12">programmes</span>, for fieldwork based <span data-scayt_word="programmes" data-scaytid="13">programmes</span> and for laboratory based <span data-scayt_word="programmes" data-scaytid="14">programmes</span>. For PhD only one fees structure is proposed.</p><p>4. The proposal is guided by standards set in the National Qualification Frame work (on study time) and Fees approved by the Board of Directors of <span data-scayt_word="NUR" data-scaytid="15">UR</span> (as a minimum benchmark).</p><p>5. Prescribed time of study is 2 ½ years for <span data-scayt_word="MPhil" data-scaytid="17">MPhil</span> and 3 years for PhD for full-time students and for part-time students it is, respectively, 3 ½ years and 5 years.</p><p>6. Students who do not complete their work in the prescribed time will seek extension on 6 months basis.</p><p>7. For <span data-scayt_word="MPhil" data-scaytid="19">MPhil</span> students seeking extension, fees for the first 6 months extension will be 50% of Year 2 fees structure for full-time students and Year 3 fees structure for part-time students. For subsequent extensions (extension 2, 3) a 5% surcharge will be imposed on the 50% fees. Allowable maximum extensions are 3. So, a student on <span data-scayt_word="MPhil" data-scaytid="20">MPhil</span> <span data-scayt_word="programme" data-scaytid="21">programme</span> can do a maximum of 4 years if on full-time basis and 5 years if on part time basis.</p><p>8. For PhD students seeking extension, fees for each 6 months of the first two extensions will be 50% of Year 3 fees structure for full-time students and Year 4 fees structure for part-time students. For subsequent extensions (extension 3, 4, 5) a 5% surcharge will be imposed on the 50% fees. Allowable maximum extensions are 5. So, a student on PhD <span data-scayt_word="programme" data-scaytid="7">programme</span> can do a maximum of 5 ½ years if on full-time basis and 7 ½ years if on part time basis.</p><p>Fees:</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>1.
