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 knowledge management center at NID is absolute gold. Would totally recommend joining just so you get access to kmc. The facilities are good, work well for a comfortable day to day life. They could update some of their tech though
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
I think NID has a good structure and a strong right knot community system, which when tapped into well, can act as a brilliant system of support and upheaval. The course syllabus could be more upto date and market oriented, but at the same time, it is also thinking based and human centric which works well for understanding the fundamentals of a design thinking and process. Also NID is a place with rich history, this having an abundance of good alumni and visiting faculties. It usually leaves you up with your devices, so most learning here happens from self driven motivation and curiosity
NID has a tight knit community system when tapped in, can work well as a support system and a good place for starting conversations and inquiring insight. Has a good mix of cultural and college activities, and regulated sports events attended by the enthusiastic community. One thing they could do is to add more diverse events, and not always depend on students to keep fuelling them
