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 a common annual summer selection. IISER Kolkata offers a unique training programme to the selected candidates through a balanced schedule of classroom lessons, project and research work. 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., Mathematical 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.

Batch of Jan. 1, 2021 | BS and MS Mathematics Dual Degree
The college is located in a very remote place. Although the name of the place suggests it is assumed that it is located in Kolkata City, but it is around 50 km away from the city. All the buildings are newly constructed. Many buildings are about to be fully functional. As a lot of constructional work is going on, the campus is full of dust. The campus is not yet greenery. That's why it does not look a fancy school. Most of the students are preferring for higher study in aboard to start a career in the education field. As most of the students draw good amount of scholarship, they are not much worried about any placement. Basic science has no as such instant application in the industry. That's why company do not prefer us. We can strengthen the corporate exposure by collaborating with the R & D sector of various company. The biggest disapointment is that there is no as such placement cell in the campus. The students who are willing to work beyond education and research field find difficulties in getting a well paying job, altough they work harder. Hostels are well maintained by house keeping staff. 24/7 free Wi-Fi is available. There is no restriction in usage limit.Washing machines are provided in each floor. Water and Electricity is always available. Student monitered canteen is available in the campus, which provides food at descent rate. In the basement area ample no of shops are available to buy your daily needs and snacks. Teaching happens in parallel to research. All the faculty members are engaged in their research. The have been assigned various labs in research complex. They are one the most knowledgeable person in their respective field. You can expect the best in this area. Dibyendu Nandi is one of the best professor working in the field of space science. He has received many awards in his field. Recently we had a talk from NASA Scientist regarding space weather which was possible because of him. Being a national institute, students from all over the India come to study. It's a great opportunity to interact with diverse people. It helps to understand various culture. It gets us closure to know India in a better way. Most of the students receive INSPIRE , KVPY fellowship. It becomes easier for them to pay the institute fees. It is quite affordable for them. But it is based on merit. There is no need based scholarship. If a student do not get scholarship, then it is expensive for him/her. Because the opportunity is available only after the PhD. It would be difficult to get well paying job just after MS. But the is recognised. Smriti Irani , former HRD Minister, came for the convocation and assured to help to make this organisation a better one.
