UGC Issues Guidelines to Colleges for Internships During Lockdown

As per the letter, it was made clear that the guidelines are advisory in nature and the Universities may accordingly plan their activities keeping in view the safety and interest of our stakeholders, giving highest priority to health of all concerned, while adopting and implementing the Guidelines. The said guidelines also provide a framework for internship etc. However, keeping in view the current situation of lock down across the country due to Covid-19, the universities/ colleges may also take following measures for internship and other related activities:

  1. Allow the students to take up ‘online internships/ activities’ including the activities that can be carried out digitally or otherwise from home.
  2. Engage them to work as interns on ongoing projects.
  3. Delay the start date for internship.
  4. Reduce the period of internship clubbing with assignments etc.
