Dear Nikita,

Thanks for writing to www.careerguide.com!

Very good question. Minimum criteria for MPhil entrance test is Masters in Psychology. You are eligible to appear for MPhil entrance test. However, UGC does not allow to pursue two degree courses at the same time.MPhil is full time course and students receive stipend. NIMHANS does not allow students to pursue any other degree courses at the same time. Either you complete PhD and then do MPhil or do MPhil then PhD.

If you want to practice clnical psychology, then I encourage you to prepare for MPhil test and do MPhil as it is recognized course to start clinical practice. MPhil degree holders can work as Clinical Psychologist (Class II officer) in Hospital for Mental Health.

If you are more interested in research then I would encourage you to complete PhD and wok in academics as teacher or in any research institutes.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any query related to PhD research or MPhil courses, feel free to ask. I would be happy to guide you.

With Best Wishes,

Apurva Kumar Pandya, PhD
