Students Testimonials Upkar Kaur Delhi Graduation in Arts DDHN , VLCC Institute “ I have completed my course from Pitampura Institute in Feb,2015. I was earlier occupied with my family .After the completion of this course, I did my internship in VLCC centre Rajouri garden . After the internship I got placement in “GLAXOSMITHKLINE”(HORLICKS) .My designation is as a Dietician & earning around 18,000 per month as a starting salary. When I came to VLCC institute, I was not only scared but a little unsure of what will I do in my life. Before this course, I was not working and was occupied in my family with no future plan. Today after completion of my DDHN course, I am working with GlaxoSmithKline & I was selected on the basis of my knowledge as well as my personality which was groomed due to 14kgs weight loss achievement only on the basis of my learning during the course. Thank you VLCC and my faculty for helping me realize my potential and inculcating belief that I can do it. Now, I am more confident and have a new vision to see life”

Vinti Jain Delhi B.Sc Microbiology, Nagpur University DDHN, VLCC Institute “ I ‘m Pursuing DDHN course from VLCC Institute, Pitampura . Earlier, I was a housewife but now I’m interested in working . Since I am from Nagpur I also wanted to do this course but due to lack of options there ,this was an unfulfilled wish. With time, I got married and migrated to Delhi. I joined VLCC Institute as it had no age bar & the class hours suited to me. Today, being a housewife, I have been able to improve my family's nutrition & well being.
