Design Schools or Design Institutes in India

India’s Education System (mainly Mumbai University from where I belong) is based on 10 + 2 + 4 years of graduation program.

For applying to graduation program in Art you need to have following qualification, You must have 10 + 2 passed certified program that means you must pass Secondary School Certification (SSC) & then 2 years of Higher Secondary Certification (HSC) then only you can apply to Art Institutes like Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art & Sir J. J. School of Art for graduation in Art.

In last few years common entrance test like MH-AAC-CAT (Maharashtra Applied Arts & Crafts Common Aptitude Test) are introduced in Maharashtra state. By passing this test it allows you to choose between art colleges for graduation in Maharashtra.

Graduation in Design
You have to start to learn design only through Art Colleges as there are no design colleges available for graduation in design.
But there are few courses available to graduate in Design from NID & IDC.
NID has ‘Graduate Diploma Program in Design (GDPD)’

Following are the famous art collages mainly in Maharashtra, India.

BFA Degree & Diploma in Applied Art & Fine Art
Sir JJIAA (Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art), Raheja School of Art, Rachana Sansad

Post Graduate Diploma in Design
CDAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) ACTS (Advanced Computing Training School) Pune
CDAC ACTS has courses like DACA (Diploma in Advanced Computing Arts) which allows you to learn digital graphic, web, animation arts through 6 Months course. Actually I have done the same course (DACA) which gave me a complete picture of Design through Modern Computer Applications

Masters in Design
IDC (Industrial Design Center)
NID (National Institute of Design)
IDC & NID has their respective All India Entrance Test Exams for their respective courses

Under Graduate, Graduate & Post Graduate Diplomas
There are few institutes in India now that allow Design through Standard 11th & 12th
Those are SID (Symbiosis Institute of Design) & MIT (Maharashtra Institute of Design) based in Pune

I will suggest you to go to respective Institute’s Websites to know about their courses in Design.
