Over the past few years, more students have been recorded to apply for the entrance exams to take admission in Institutes like IISERs. Hence, the Exam Patterns have become more rigorous making students compete more & prepare for those exams thoroughly.
The NRI Students residing abroad can also apply for admissions in IISERs. But they need to go through the same tough screening & competition that is continuing to grow every year.
With limited resources abroad to prepare for IISER Admissions, it becomes even more challenging for the NRI Students. Let us first elaborate on the eligibility criteria for IISERs in context to NRIs as well.
Applications for admission in IISERs are to be submitted online at the admission portal of IISER’s website.
