    There is a misconception about college lecturer job, that B.Ed can land you a job. My answer is No. You need more than Bachelor's degree. The best way to become college lecturer is appearing in the teaching eligibility tests specialized for lecturers/Professors.Three exams that I would refer:CSIR NETUGC NETGATEUGC and CSIR are for Post graduates while GATE is for Engineering Graduates.Other State level Lectureship exams are:SLETApart from these, most of the private colleges recruit lecturers based on their merit and performance in interview held by the organization.For being lecturer in Medical colleges, you need to appear in PhD in medical s... view more

    Hi,
    If you want to become a lecturer, you need to complete Bachelor’s degree in a particular subject, then you need to do Masters in that subject only. After your Masters, you can appear for UGC National Entrance Test or SET (State Entrance Test). The minimum eligibility for UGC NET is that the candidate should have completed Masters from a recognized university with 55% marks aggregate.
    Once you clear the NET or SET exam, you can apply in various universities across India for Assistant professor or Junior Research Fellowship (JRF).

    One needs to do Master's degree and Ph.D. Also, the person has to clear the UGC Net. The candidate should be ranking high both in Master's degree and NET. This will enable the candidate to take the position of a lecturer and later on after gaining experience he or she can be upgraded to the post of an assistant professor then promoted to professor.

    My dear candidate, I'm glad to have you. Candidates who want to work as lecturers in India should enrol in Ph.D. programmes at one of the best Ph.D. Universities in the nation. After the 12th grade, individuals seeking admission as Lecturers are often evaluated based on their performance on Ph.D. entrance exams.

    To become a college lecturer, you must complete your Master's degree. After it, if you have above 55% average scores then you are able to give NET, SET, Ph.D and MPhil exam.
    If you clear any of these ecams with a good ranking then you are eligible to get a job as a leturer in a college. Also, nowadays, SET and NET are better options as compared to Ph.D and M.Phil.
    Thank you
