All candidates who are interested to enroll must note that the last date to submit the applications for MA Economics and MA English is March 31, 2022 and March 4, 2022, respectively.
Ashoka University is now inviting applications for Master's Programmes in Economics and in English for the academic year 2022-23. The classes for the courses will commence from August 2022. All candidates who are interested to enroll must note that the last date to submit the applications for MA Economics and MA English is March 31, 2022 and March 4, 2022, respectively. Candidates are required to fill out an application form online before the said date by visiting the official website of the University.
All those who wish to apply for the MA in Economics programme need a recognised undergraduate degree in any discipline. They are required to appear for an online entrance examination. If the candidate clears the entrance exam, they will be invited for an online interview round. The interview round is to gauge if the candidate is suitable for the programme. There is no fee to start an application. However, there is a non-refundable fee of INR 1,000 that is charged at the time of submitting the application form.
For an MA in English, applicants should have completed their undergraduate degree from a recognised university or be enrolled in the final year of their study. The minimum percentage required to apply to the programme will be 55 per cent for students from Indian universities, and a GPA of 3.0 or its equivalent from foreign universities. Admission to the programme does not necessarily require an English undergraduate degree, even though it may provide an advantage in transitioning to the masters-level study of English at Ashoka University. Shortlisted candidates through the online application will be invited for an online on-the-spot essay writing test. The candidate will be given two topics to choose from at the time of writing the essay. The essay has no word limit and can be attempted with minimal preparation. The on-the-spot essay evaluates engagement with the prompt, critical thinking, clarity of thought, and creativity. Once candidates have been shortlisted from the written test, they will be called for the interview.
The list of candidates who have cleared the admission process will be intimated after the interview round.
