    One of my relatives studying there told me about this university and its bachelor's degree in painting. So, I applied for it through an online undergraduate admission form by paying $40, after doing some research about the university. I had scored 8.5 CGPA in my 12th boards so it was easy for me to get ahead of the others for selection.

    Course Curriculum :

    Till now I've got the opportunity to meet the famous painters and artists due to this course. We're made to interact and work with them to enhance our skills and be our best. We're often taken on trips and made to draw different scenic paintings.
