Students can gain credits for the courses they take, which can be pursued with the home institution and the Office of Summer Programmes at Ashoka.

The Ashoka University has invited students from academic institutions across India to participate in Indian Student Programme (VISP).  Students enrolled in an undergraduate course in any university or stream can apply for the programme.

The aim of the course is to “exchange of ideas between undergraduate students from across educational institutions in India and the globe," claims Ashoka. The six-week-long online programme will commence on July 5 and continue till August 13. The deadline for enrolling in the VISP programme is June 5.

On account of COVID-19, the courses will be held online. Students will be offered a range of four-credit courses in various disciplines. Classes will be held from Monday to Friday with over 48 contact hours and in-depth interaction with faculty members. In addition, numerous professional, cultural and social interaction will further be offered through the ‘eSCAPe’ platform of events online for the summer undergraduate cohort by Ashoka University.

Speaking about the programme, Dr Vanita Shastri, Dean of Global Education & Strategic Programs, Ashoka University said that the programme will help students in building their academic prowess and offer a unique mingling of students across the academic institutions. “This will also provide students an opportunity to share their perspectives in a global virtual learning setting,” added Shastri.

Students will also get a chance to experience the liberal arts and sciences pedagogy. The programme will provide an opportunity to study with a diverse cohort of students.

Students can gain credits for the courses they take, which can be pursued with the home institution and the Office of Summer Programmes at Ashoka. Besides, all students will get a transcript from Ashoka University at the end of their course.
