Respected Sir/Madam

I am Dr. Sheetal. I have completed a degree course in homoeopathy (BHMS) from Pune. Now, I wish to learn physiotherapy. Can you please provide me information about short courses in physiotherapy and the names of recognized institutes in Mumbai and Pune conducting such courses?

Dr. Sheetal

Counselor: Physiotherapy is a professional course in itself, and the subjects taught are entirely different from what you might have studied in your BHMS course (except for a few papers related to anatomy). Also, no college offers any short-term course in physiotherapy. You only have the choice of going for a Bachelor’s degree program.

I am forwarding you a list of colleges located in Pune and Mumbai offering courses in physiotherapy. For your convenience, I have also mentioned the contact numbers and the e-mail addresses of the respective colleges.

Dear Sir/Madam

Can you please tell me about M.Phil in Clinical Psychology?

Parveen

Counselor: Dear Parveen, as requested, following is the information regarding M.Phil in Clinical Psychology.

Parveen, you have not mentioned anything about the subjects that you have studied in your Graduation and Post-Graduation. Hence, I would like to inform you that it is important to have studied Psychology as a main subject in Graduation and Post-Graduation to pursue a course in Clinical Psychology. However, a Master’s Degree or Diploma is not enough to practice as a Clinical Psychologist. The Indian Journal of Clinical Psychology clearly states that in addition to a Master’s in Psychology, a two-year M.Phil degree is the minimum requirement for a Clinical Psychologist. In principle though, a PhD is the preferred qualification. Alternatively, you should be a Full Member of the Indian Association of Clinical Psychologists (IACP), not an Associate or Correspondent Member.

As a Clinical Psychologist, you will apply the findings of Psychology to diagnose and treat patients holistically. You could also choose to focus on researching mental and psychosomatic illnesses in children and adults. It may perhaps surprise you to know that even in the large metros, there are barely a handful of qualified Clinical Psychologists, particularly in government hospitals. Generally, Psychologists are employed in social work, management, human resource development, personnel development and public relations. Psychologists can seek employment in hospitals, psychiatric clinics, schools and colleges, and in private institutions, in teaching and at research centres. They can also work with voluntary agencies, welfare organisations and de-addiction centres.

Some of the institutes that offer PhD/M.Phil with different specializations in Psychology are as follows:

  1. National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences, Bangalore; NIMHANS, Bangalore, rated amongst the top 10 institutions in this field globally, is the hottest destination for those training to be professional Psychologists.
  2. Central Institute of Psychiatry, Kanke, Ranchi - 834 006, Jharkhand
    • Courses:
      PhD in Clinical Psychology
      Duration: 3 years for M.A. (Psychology) degree holders and 2 years after D.M. and S.P./ M.Phil in Medical and Social Psychology/ M.Phil in Clinical Psychology
      Qualification : 1st Class Master’s degree in Psychology or Diploma in M.Phil in Medical and Social Psychology/ M.Phil in Clinical Psychology for 3 years and 2 years courses respectively.
    • PhD in Psychiatric work

      Qualification: M.A. Social Work or M.S.W. with at least 60% marks or DPSW/  M.Phil in Psychiatric Social work for 3 years and 2 years courses respectively.

           Eligibility: Masters Degree in Psychology with 55 % marks.

  • The Directorate of Distance Education, Annamalai University, offers a one year M.Phil in Psychology.

           Eligibility: Masters degree in Psychology or related subjects with 50%             aggregate marks.

Respected Sir/Madam

I am a third year student of electronics and communication engineering and want to do my M.S. in U.S.A in the marketing field. I want to know if the field has a good career scope. I also want information regarding the universities offering courses in marketing in the U.S.A. Please note that I have only 70% aggregate in my 5 semesters. Can you guide me how to proceed from here?

Arun Kumar

Counselor: I appreciate your concern and pro active approach towards your career. Let me briefly explain to you the process of admission in any US university:

Admission to a Graduate course (A Post Graduate degree of India is called a graduation in USA) in USA can take place after 16 years of education. Since you are doing your engineering you already fulfill this criterion unlike a normal graduate, who has 15 years of education. High achievers at the undergraduate level who wish to continue their graduate study in the US may begin to apply during their final year of under-graduation. Most schools require high scholastic performance and standardized test score – GRE scores are required for those applying for any subject related to Humanities, Commerce or Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture courses etc., or any non-management course and GMAT for management courses. All graduate schools require your TOEFL scores and proof of adequate financial support.

All US universities need evidence of satisfactory completion of college or university. Your application must include complete set of transcripts of secondary school and college. Generally an undergraduate degree with a ‘B’ average and score is acceptable, so make sure that you maintain it.

Application (for Graduation) must carry your Statement of Purpose (SOP) which tells the admission office about your academic experience and goals. If the institution request letters of recommendation, ask two or three people to write letters on your behalf (the college will specify the number of letters). These should be people who hold respected positions and who know you and your academic work well.

Marketing is an integral part of any business organization and is a growing field. No organization can run without generating business, therefore it has always been in demand. Organizations, nowadays, are looking for people with specialized qualification in business management, in addition to their technical skills. Therefore more and more engineers are now going for further specialization in field of management.

Generally students study the same subjects for master’s degree which they have majored in at the Bachelors level. However, in  the cases like yours where  one wishes to pursue studies in different subjects, they may be asked to complete undergraduate coursework in the US in that subject without earning any credits to make up for the academic deficiencies.

Wishing you all the best

Respected Sir/Madam

I am a student of Integrated LLB course (duration 5 years) in IME Law College, Sahibabad, which is affiliated to CCS University, Meerut. I want to do specialization in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). Can you suggest some institutions from where I can pursue a course in IPR. What are the career prospects open to me after completion of the course?

Swati Rathore  

Counsellor: With International Market opening up & Indian economy being more liberalized, it is imperative to understand the World Trade Laws & IPR issues. A specialization in IPR with LLB, will definitely give you an edge. Specialization in IPR is generally offered as a Diploma course by most of the Institutions. The pre requisite for which is LLB, but some of the Institutes like Amity Law School does offer a specialized course in IPR that can be done along with LLB & the classes are held over the weekends.

However, if time is not a constraint, it is advisable to join LLM (2yrs.) that exposes you to other areas of specialization, as well as research.

I am forwarding you some links for institutes offering courses in IPR :

I hope this will give you some direction.
