Introduction
The internship is an opportunity designed for the students to share their visions, to walk around the links between students' academic preparation and their field work. Internships also support participants in developing and carrying out the major research project which will serve to culminate their internship experience. The ORIC acts as Focal Point for dealing with students and the institute/organization and will be responsible for ensuring effective use of the internees' services.
The Government of the Punjab has launched a special program “Punjab Youth Internship Program” in which professional degree/diploma holders are engaged in the relevant activities through ORIC. International students from Australia, Germany, Sweden and Malaysia do their internships at UAF and ORIC facilitates them and ensure their effective engagement in the relevant disciplines.
