Avantika University exploring creative exchange with Royal College of Art, London


May 2016

With the advent of creating a progressive and design thinking oriented course curriculum, team Avantika is exploring partnership and exchange program opportunities with Royal College of Art, United Kingdom.

Professor Sanjay Jain, Director – Design Education and Professor Prasheel Suryavanshi, Project Director from team Avantika met senior members from the creative and design department of the college. The discussion focused on exploring joint partnerships, between faculties, administrators, and alumni towards engaging in a wide range of initiatives where Royal College of Art can advise Avantika University team to develop a unique academic model which offers a broadened world-view, and also recommends infrastructure requirements in admissions, development, student and faculty affairs.

Additionally, the key driver for this discussion was the interest from both the wings to work on several research and innovation projects in future. The teams will meet again to finalize the framework and eventually start working together.
