Admissions

The admissions at SSVAP take place in a three-step selection process. This process is designed to identify potential candidates to fit in our programmes. SSVAP looks for candidates who have a creative mindset as well as a clear vision and interest in pursuing a career in the fields of Visual arts and Photography. The admission process begins with aspirants registering themselves on our website wherein, they need to showcase their portfolios. We look for candidates who have been trying their hands on the different art mediums with an understanding and liking towards these art forms.

The next vital step is the admission process in the Personal Interaction. The candidates who get shortlisted on the basis of their portfolios, are called for a one-on-one interaction with the faculty members. These candidates, thus, get an opportunity to express their thoughts about their interest areas and reasons for pursuing this programme.
