The new academic session of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) will begin from July 26 as the premier fashion technology institute has finished online admissions introduced for the first time across all its centres in India. The new session will begin after an orientation programme from July 23-25.
All seats (36 for each course), in the two bachelor courses - accessory designing and textile designing and master of fashion management are filled.
"After the online process, the students hailing from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh now need not go to Delhi for counselling; they can fill up the centre of their choice and sit for counselling in Bhopal" said U S Tolia, director of NIFT, Bhopal.
"We have a very transparent system wherein parents can sit outside and view the proceedings of the counselling process", he added.
Aditya Upadhyay, assistant professor at NIFT said, "Students are very happy with the convenient procedure that NIFT has adopted."
"I had already got my railway tickets booked for travelling to Delhi, but I was very happy when I came to know that I will now have to travel only three hours for counselling from Indore to Bhopal," said Bhoomi Solanki, a candidate from Indore.
