The Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), located at Berhampur, Bhopal, Kalyani, Mohali, Pune, Thiruvananthapuram and Tirupati, are a group of premier science education and research institutes in India. They are institutes of national importance. The institute accepts admissions through KVPY, INSPIRE and JEE Advanced. IISER offer five year BS-MS dual degree courses in which the first two years of the programme consist of core courses in basic sciences, the third and fourth are dedicated to specialization in chosen science subjects, with the fifth year having a focus on a research project.
