Review of National Institute of Fashion Technology, Chennai

NIFT Chennai is a great place for people with a keen interest in design and fashion technology to develop their skills in all the respective fields. It's definitely one of the best fashion colleges in India and the best in Chennai. This is a really fun and creative place where one can have really good experiences. But all the courses are very hectic. There's a lot of hard work and sleepless nights involved, but I think that's going to help us in the future though it makes life hard now. So unless this course is one's passion, it's going to be too hard to pull through for four years.


JIMS is the best college for students

The college is good for management courses. First I thought that it's not good but then as days passed by I realised that I was wrong. It has good placements. Faculty members are friendly and helpful. The crowd is also good.

The overall experience was excellent and I proudly call myself an NIFTIAN. NIFT gives you a different perspective towards everything. It teaches you art, design and much more. Four years was a great learning experience. Awesome college life and cool campus
