  • Visiting Indian Students Programme – (VISP)

    Ashoka University welcomes undergraduate students from other colleges and universities in India to experience the university’s unique academic offerings through the Visiting Indian Students Programme.

    The Visiting Indian Students Programme is specifically designed to foster exchange of ideas between undergraduate students from across educational institutions and those at Ashoka. In keeping with this ethos this purpose will be fulfilled, this year, by conducting all courses in-person with a few courses being offered online. If a course is in-person, all students will be expected to be on campus and take the course in-person. No hybrid mode will be available.

    Enrolling for the summer semester at Ashoka provides you an opportunity to take courses and study with Ashoka’s global faculty. This will expand the academic range of topics you could be studying. It will help build on your academic prowess, experience the liberal arts and sciences pedagogy or simply explore other areas of interest. The summer semester provides you the opportunity to study with Ashoka students and with students from international institutions giving you an experience in global learning in a virtual setting.

    Here are some of the advantages the summer semester provides for Visiting Indian students:
    1. Opportunity to study with Ashoka’s eminent global faculty
    2. Expand your academic interests and skills
    3. Explore a new field or topic of your interest
    4. Experience the liberal arts and sciences pedagogy
    5. Learn the Multi-disciplinary method of problem-solving

    If you would like to gain credits for the courses you take at Ashoka please pursue that with your college/university and the Office of Summer Programmes at Ashoka will help to follow up. In order to maximize the benefit of the summer semester, all students are encouraged to seek academic advising before registering for courses. All summer students, no matter which college or university they are from, will get a summer transcript from Ashoka.

    As a part of the summer semester, The Office of Summer Programmes at the university offers several opportunities for students to meet and interact in a number of forums beyond the classroom. These take the form of social and cultural activities online and includes virtual tours of cultural sites of India, speaker series, social mixers, book clubs, coursework related small group hangouts, reading groups, weekend activities, and more.
