Students wishing to study performing arts should, if possible, enclose Video/ audio cassettes of their recorded performances. Candidates must have adequate knowledge of English and they have to pass English Proficiency Test conducted by Indian Mission. ICCR will not entertain applications which are sent to ICCR directly by the students or which are sent by local Embassies/High Commissions in New Delhi.
Priority will be given to students who have never studied in India before. No application will be accepted for admission to courses in MBBS/MD or Dentistry/Nursing. Candidates may note that Indian universities/educational institutions are autonomous and independent and hence have their own eligibility criteria. For warding of applications is thus not a guarantee of admission. A scholarship is awarded only when admission is confirmed by ICCR. Student must carry a proper visa. Scholars for structured undergraduate and postgraduate course should car ry full term “Student Visa” while for Ph.D. student “Research Visas” for a specific period of 4-5 1 / 2 years is required. Students should ensure that they get the correct visa from the Indian Embassy/High Commission. Government of India guidelines stipulate that if a scholar arrives without proper visa and his/her actual admission at the University/Institute does not materialize, he/she will be deported to his/her country. In the case of students who require Research Visas, an additional application for the Research Visa has to be filled and submitted in five copies alongwith five photographs & synopsis.
