UGC to consider PhD research period equal to teaching experience

UGC

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed all the universities to start considering the PhD research period as equivalent to teaching experience.

As per the circular, “the period of active service spent on pursuing Research Degree i.e. for acquiring PhD degree simultaneously, without taking any kind of leave, may be counted as teaching experience for the purpose of direct recruitment/ promotion to the post of Associate Professor and above.”




According to experts, this as an effort by the UGC to try fill up vacant posts across India’s universities & colleges which ask for at least 2 – 3 years of teaching experience for faculty positions.
