Two internships are a must in this curriculum. While one is a one month SIP (summer Internship), the other is a four month GP ( graduation project) which is basically an entire semester (4th semester).  During GP, students have to work on projects given by the company that they have been hired by.

This project has to be presented in front of a jury (combining both external as well as internal jury) at the end of the semester. Apart from the two internships, the college also hosts a bunch of outbound programs, industry visits & workshops. NIFT also has a centralized placement system meaning students from all NIFT campuses can sit for placements in their choice of campus. MFM students are mostly hired by retail biggies for the position of retail buyer, merchandiser, planner, visual merchandising et al.

  • Only Girls' Hostel is available which is off campus and it does not have enough rooms to accomodate all students.
  • So most people end up in PGs or private hostels which are abundant near the college. To find a PG or private hostel in the area is no big deal. I, myself stay in a PG. Usually their cost varies depending on the room type, size, meals, etc, varying from Rs 4000- 6000 to even Rs 10000 for rooms with ACs and other facilities.
  • The food of the college canteen is good and cheap as well. Apart from the canteen, there is also a coffee place, where tea, coffee, hot chocolate, pasta, sandwich is available. There are also food stalls outside the college, where all types of food is available at reasonable price.
  • The quality of classrooms, labs are very good, they are completely air conditioned and are in good condition. The library or the resource centre is awesome, having a huge collection of books, magazines, newspapers. The entire campus has wi- fi facility.

  • The college sends students for an internship at the end of 2nd year and 3rd year, So, I have not yet been to any, but as I heard from my seniors of 4th year, the students got a good stipend, and apart from that the experience gained is very good and useful. Even at the end of 1st year students can try out for internships in the industries but to have an internship with stipend is difficult to find ( not impossible).
  • The details of placements is published each year in the placement brochure in which the names of companies and the salaries are mentioned. The placement brochure can be obtained by searching on google ( NIFT placement Brochure)

National Institute of Fashion Technology, Kolkata is one of the best of its kind in the country. And, as far as the course goes, in the current scenario it is one of the best courses to join or try to join because the apparel industry is growing really fast and is in need of skilled people. In Kolkata, the standard is good with most of the faculties knowing their subject well. Ofcourse among them there are always few who stale things and makes us repent that its their class, else it is one of the best places to be in
