Since UCEED doesn’t have any drawing test, we provide only theory classes for students appearing for UCEED.

This process helps students to face their entrance exams more confidently. We alter the teaching syllabus according to individual needs. For eg: college syllabus for art would be different from architecture, hence we prepare students depending on their choice of stream.

Through rigorous practice sessions we ensure our students are well prepared for the tough questions expected in the entrance examinations. Our teaching methods are designed to increase visualization and creative skills. Students are taught to generate innovative ideas in keeping with the needs of the global creative industry. Students are further encouraged to observe, understand, debate, question, discover new ideas and develop skill sets. We also ensure individual attention since each student comes with different set of skills which need to be nurtured differently. Mock tests and interviews are conducted to mentally prepare students for their upcoming exams.
