Policy Related Supervised Learning

About the Programme

Policy Related Supervised Learning courses are personalised courses that are offered under the Policy umbrella by CPS at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. These courses provide students with an opportunity to work on half-semester long policy related LIVE projects. These courses involve working closely with a faculty member. The goal is to interact with the the outside world directly and formulate solutions, which could be in the form of policy recommendations based on an analytical understanding of a research topic. These courses offer an excellent opportunity to students who wish to apply themselves as policy analysts, social scientists or consultants in this exciting area of Policy development. 

Please read the guidelines and broad design carefully before applying.
