As inquiry and discovery are crossing disciplines, Far-Western University (FWU) has taken a step to introduce an interdisciplinary MPhil/PhD program. With regular and intensive coursework, the program will span across traditional disciplines and support students in developing knowledge and skills for independent research on the fundamental issues and experiences of human civilization. The program is designed to provide self-directed students with academic training at the highest level of scholarship, which would develop their ability to integrate principles and theories from different disciplines using approaches, methods, ethical principles, and tools to pursue research inquiry. 

The purpose of the program is to prepare students to conduct a significant scholarly inquiry into the relation of inter and cross-disciplinary processes. Students, therefore, will be exposed to a variety of research methods and approaches and invited to explore insights into varied processes and practices that have been advanced by a wide array of intellectual traditions and theoretical conversations.


The applicants must have a master's degree (preferably in Education) from Far Western University or any university recognized by FWU with at least 3.0 CGPA  out of 4.0 or second division in aggregate. The applicants are also required to appear for the written entrance examination and an interview. 

Students applying for coursework MPhil/PhD programs will be required to submit the following documents:

Official/attested transcripts of all previous academic works from undergraduate degree onwards;

Statement of purpose of 500 words;

Writing sample (a research paper) of 1000-1500 words. 

Applicants will be evaluated according to their previous academic records, recommendations, the quality and appropriateness of their statement of purpose, writing samples, performance in the entrance examination/comprehensive test.

Admission Criteria

Students applying for MPhil/PhD in the Nepali program should have completed Masters or MPhil in a Nepali. The initial screening of the prospective students will be done on the basis of a writing sample and a statement of purpose submitted along with a completed admission form provided by the university. Eligible students will then have to appear for an entrance examination administered by the university if they are joining the course-based MPhil/PhD program. Those with the Mphil degree will be registered to the PhD program based on the recommendation, statement of purpose, writing sample, and the results of the comprehensive test. The selection will be on the basis of merit and the number of seats available.
