UID is a well-known and growing institute where academics are taken seriously. It has a beautiful and aesthetic campus I have fallen in love with. The atmosphere is made conducive to learning and the exposure we receive here through the conversations at KU and master classes is amazing. And most of all the campus is absolutely safe and ragging free. 🙂 so far it has been a great place to learn and grow as a designer! — Srinidhi Sem 04, Visual Communication
