IISER Kolkata offers a Bachelor and Masters (BS-MS) dual degree programme in synchrony with other IISERs. The selection for the BS-MS programme is conducted through an common annual summer selection. IISER Kolkata offers a unique training programme to the selected candidates through a balanced schedule of class room lessons, project and research works. While the Institute aims to comprehensively train the students in each of the major subjects, much attention is also directed to the development of the inter-disciplinary skills. The broad outline of the training programme is as follows:
In the first year, all students are introduced to basic sciences, viz., Biological, Chemical, Mathematical, Physical and Earth Sciences. In the second year, the students select three pre-major subjects from the above mentioned disciplines. In the third and fourth years, students choose a major subject from the above disciplines and need to take optional interdisciplinary courses. The fifth year almost completely devoted to full time research/technical project/specialized training in which the students need to prepare a dissertation. At the end of the fifth year, both Bachelor and Masters degrees are awarded to successful candidates.
