Hostels & Food :
On campus there is no availability of any sort of housing options. Off campus, there is presence of a lot of PGs close by for the outstation students. A canteen is present in each building of the college with decent quality food. Off campus there are no such major food options as the college is located in an industrial area.
College Infrastructure :
Infrastructure is one area where this college truly lacks behind. The Naraina, New Delhi campus is situated in an industrial area with the college buildings scattered all over the place. Their is no real campus, just different buildings in a not so great area. The quality of classrooms, labs, libraries is good though and the campus is Wi-fi enabled.
Placements & Internships :
As far as the post graduation diploma courses are concerned, internships are a mandatory part of the course curriculum post the second semester and they are provided by the college itself based on merit. Placement Cell is also active and good companies come to hire students on campus from almost all courses.
International Exposure :
International exposure is excellent at Pearl. It is affiliated with top fashion universities across the globe. Students from all courses get different opportunities for foreign exchange programmes. Particularly with my course (Post Graduation in Fashion Business), I have the opportunity to go for an exchange programme to Domus Academy, Milan in the third semester.
Academics & Faculty :
Academics at the Pearl Academy is very fine. A good amount of classes are scheduled combined with a few hours of self work making it very hectic yet productive. The methodology of teaching is advanced and very practical based. A good variety of courses are available to choose from with various specialisation in each. Faculty is excellent- very friendly and available outside class too.
