Admission :

The application form provided by the college can be obtained from any of NIIFT centres but they are also provided online on their official website. NIIFT select students on the basis of the entrance exam followed by interview and situation, it's not easy to get in this Institute you have to be very creative and talented. I selected textile designing as it's different and I love how the printing is done on the clothes so I choose this Institute. And it's the best decision I have ever made.

Admission :

Apply for the admission online and fill in the necessary details. You need to have at least 50% marks in your relevant bachelor's course from a recognized Institute or University. An online entrance test named as CAT is to be cleared as its weight-age is around 80%. Then you will be called for the group discussion and interview round. A merit list will be prepared on the student's performance in the online exam and interview round. If lucky, you will be granted admission in the college.
