Unlike JEE for admission in BTech courses, there is no common counselling for the qualified candidates aspiring to join M Tech or Ph D programmes. The candidates will have to apply separately for admission in the post-graduate programmes through separate counselling conducted for GATE by IITs, NITs, IISc Bangalore, GFTIs and others.
Besides IITs, IISc and PSUs, the GATE score is accepted by foreign universities as well. Among them, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technical University (NTU) accepts GATE examination score for admissions in postgraduate programmes. Certain universities in Germany like RWTH Aachen and TU Munich have made GATE score mandatory for Indian nationals to be considered for admission to postgraduate courses.
