The Graduate Education at Shiv Nadar University is a combination of pedagogy in the classroom with mentored research supervision along with freedom and encouragement to work on diverse and eclectic areas of research.  

The University provides a dynamic, exciting, discovery-driven intellectual environment that attracts exceptional postgraduate students and trains them for leadership positions in academia, industry, government, research laboratories, and non-profit organizations. A combination of outstanding faculty; research facilities and infrastructure of world standards; and a culture of rigorous and open inquiry has inspired students to fruitfully engage with their individual research interests as well as place themselves in a wider network of knowledge creation. Through the opportunity for ‘teaching and research assistantship’, most doctoral students get the opportunity to delve deeper into their disciplines as well as teach the undergraduates.

The University offers Postgraduate Diploma, Masters and Doctoral programs in various fields of study spread across its five schools, allowing students the scope to pursue new ideas, lines of inquiry and contribute to the creation of new knowledge.
