UFP guarantees a two-month internship for all Fellows in order to facilitate the transition from classroom learning to the complex world of work and practice. Internships will be oﬀered in government departments and public institutions, private ﬁrms and practices, social movements, non-governmental organisations, research think-tanks, development sector organisations and planning and design ﬁrms, among others. Each learner will focus on a work programme after reaching an agreement with members of the IIHS faculty and the institution about the mutually beneﬁcial outputs from the Internship. Internship outputs can take multiple forms including a conceptual paper, policy brief or analysis, spatial plans, business models, technical reports, ﬁlm and video, among others.
In 2016-17, the Fellows are interning with a wide range of institutions including the Centre for Policy Research (Delhi), Centre for Urban Equity, CEPT (Ahmedabad), Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, CBRE India, Conservation India, Mahila Housing Trust SEWA, and the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, among others.
