OPUS brings to the notice of aspirants that some really good colleges should grab their attention. This piece is in continuation with the series meant to highlight the existence of some amazing colleges that get eclipsed. IIAD is one such premier college that deserves to be on the radar. Functioning in collaboration with Kingston University, London, it is a suitable option for students keen to build their career in fashion and design.
As most of the aspirants remain obsessed with a couple of hallowed institutes, the milieu turns stygian and stokes pessimism that simmers and snuffs out their passion for the métier in case the results do not turn out to be superlative. To stave off such a predicament, it is important that students should be made fully aware of the multiple options available to them.
