    Eligibility for Master Programme – Design

    OR

    * Bachelor in Applied Arts (Fashion Design / Visual Communication / Graphic Design / Industrial Design / Interior Design / Multimedia Design / Product Design / Textiles & Accessories.

    OR

    * B.Arch.

    OR

    * Design Diploma / Degree from NIFT / NID / International University of repute

    Candidates having additional industry experience in the relevant fields would be preferred.

    So. It clearly states. Nope you are not eligible for M.Des without a graduation related to DESIGN

  • February 3, 2013

    I had been already stressing on that. I'v been askin people to prepare rigt from september-october.

    Anyway.. about managing GAT-CAT during boards.

    If ur sister has got naturally good sketching skills… ask her to solve around 20-30 sample papers….

    Since, NIFT Entrance is in february, ask her to spend some time in january-dec to start preparing. 🙂

  • February 3, 2013

    listen the both the courses are completely different.
    If u are good with sketching, graphics, etc and intersted in photography, graphics and journalism… u can go for fashion comm.

    If ur interests are in fashion, garments, fashion shows, and if u follow all the fashion weeks relegiously den FD is d course for u.

    heyy….i'm apoorva…
    i just wanted ur opinion…
    i want 2 be a designer…also i was thinking of getting into fashion journalism(masters).
    so….if i want to settle as a designer in the after-years,would fashion design be better than fashion communication?
    i'm sooo confused….haalllpp!!!

  • February 3, 2013

    thankx a lot dude.

  • February 3, 2013

    hm.. u ppl need to start preparing frm now. If you don't make some time now, u'll nvr make it again.

    I never focused on my half yearly and pre boards.
    10 days of intense practice must be doing it for creative ability test.

    trust me, never prepare for GAT. It's a cake walk!

    You'll have plenty of time for situation test in april-may

    hey there :]
    im interested in fashion communication as well as fashion design.
    but happen to be a grad in business administration.
    now im planning for something sensible,
    say a course in fashion communication or fashion design.
    but hugely confused as what to go for as both interest me.
    I got greater aptitude for photography, sketching and graphics though.
    But whats confusing is that i cant stop designing drapes at the back of my copies.
    help!
