What Students Say

The students of SEDA are very active and facilitate a lot of student-driven activities, right from organizing design and architecture lectures, music and jam sessions and managing their own Newsletter and Instagram page. With the freedom to form their own clubs, discussion groups and encouragement to spend time on campus, we aspire to promote a free and thriving student culture at SEDA.
SEDA is where the learning begins. This is where you find yourself, a friendly atmosphere and a happy moment. From discovering new ideas to focusing on the details helped me grow every day. I am filled with joy and gratitude with my journey.

A 5-year program in architecture is expected to teach design and all the technicalities related to it. In SEDA, I learnt to ' think' about designing first, followed by the act of it. The consciously curated curriculum exposed me to various methodologies in thinking, as well as approaches to orient my thinking towards design. I learned about myself and my deeper inclination towards psychology and its interrelation with the built environment. SEDA gave me an opportunity to explore this inquiry in the form of a research based thesis focusing on people having autism and other mental health conditions. This opportunity shaped my trajectory and landed me the Anant Fellowship on a full scholarship to further understand various nuances to this.

Learning at Navrachana University is something I will always cherish and look back on. The pedagogy of the program not being confined, but reflecting a diverse range of subjects allowed me to think freely which led me to various opportunities. The Studio courses mainly curated around and focused on the “Design Process” along with careful consideration of history, context, environment and the futuristic possibilities; helped to shape my thinking which served as a strong base while pursuing my Master’s at Deakin University in Australia. This emphasis on the “Design Process” and its consistent practice always made me stand out from the rest during my Master’s program. After my recent completion of the course, presently I am working with local Architects and Designers in the Design city – Geelong, Australia.

RESEARCH CENTER

SEDA recently launched the Navrachana University Center for Heritage Research to carry out new research investigations in understanding the value and significance of heritage buildings. In a very short period of time, the Center has already garnered international attention through its various initiatives. Students and faculty members work together on projects right from documentation, research, publications and exhibitions as final outputs. All students are welcome to work at the Center under the guidance of faculty.
Massive disruptions, intense competitiveness, amplified focus on sustainability and highly volatile global dynamics are the truth of our times.
At NUV we are acutely aware that students who want to be successful in their professional and personal life, need to possess more than just academic knowledge.
They need to become team players and hone their creative skills to be able to solve new-age challenges. They need to nurture and grow their social, psychological, emotional, and ethical quotients. They need to internalise the lessons that playing a sport teaches – that victory and losses are sides of the same coin and not to get disheartened by setbacks. Thus, at NUV we focus on the holistic development of our students that goes beyond books and includes art, culture, sports, student-organised seminars, explorations, field trips, etc.
