An internship enhances students’ skills by providing experiential learning that combines cognitive knowledge with practical applications. In today’s world, internships blend individual growth with collaboration and foster self-reliance (Atmanirbhar). With recent innovations and changes in educational methods, practical learning in a professional setting is essential for students. To offer short-term exposure and experience to students in different departments, centers, and institutes of the University of Delhi, the Central Placement Cell (CPC) under the Dean of Students’ Welfare at the University of Delhi introduces the Vice Chancellor Internship Scheme (VCIS) for UG and PG levels. This internship initiative is unique as it broadens students’ minds, enhances their skills in their own college or university, and enriches their potential by nurturing research interests and providing valuable work experience.
