    It was my best shot. I was unsure, and they had a year long foundation course, so I could still make up my mind if this is what I truly wanted. It was a lucky shot, but worth it. Right now, I am doing animation and film design, and the wealth of insight and info I get here is probably most human centric and community based.

    The placements have not yet started. The college doesn't as such provide internships. It just aids in you finding one. However it is compulsory for you toNgo to an internship after third year, hence the college helps you in getting placed into one. NID promotes paid internships however one can chose to apprentice if they value the learning more.
