Ph.D. in US directly after Graduation

The United States of America is home to numerous World class education and research institutes, so it is an ideal place to do Ph.D. Doctoral programs are available in most academic fields, including social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, arts, business, healthcare and education. Individual Ph.D. programs are highly field-specific and often selected based on faculty advisors as much as schools, so students seeking lists of Ph.D. programs may wish to narrow down a field of study first. It ideally takes around four to five years. One can do Ph.D directly after graduation.


The session starts around August each year in most of the institutes barring few where the intake may be in January as well.

The Cost:

The tuition fee alone costs around $30,000 to $40,000 plus living expense of around $8000 per year.
