"Mosaic Institute Of Design has helped me discover my hidden creativity and develop my interest for design. The teaching process is very good and propagates self - exploration rather than enforcement of ideas." Activities like live outdoor sketching helps a lot in understanding the activities and spaces around us. The study material is very informative and covers everything required for any design / architecture entrance exam."

"Well Mosiac Institute Of Design is a major reason why am in CEPT today. If it was not for Mosaic & the faculties I would not have been here. I am successful just because of the efforts my teachers have put in. And I would not deny that the study material provided was good enough for us "students" to fully rely on. I would not be ungrateful to deny the efforts of my faculties. This is where I wanted to be and Mosaic is the reason for the same.
If anyone asks me I would not hesitate to recommend Mosaic."

"Enrolling in Mosiac Institute Of Design was one of my most important and right decision .
I would say it is one of the best institute if you want to prepare for B. Planning B.Arch Interior Design and SBST . It provided me with an environment where I could enhance my creativity and planning skills. Spending time in the class even after the normal lecture gave me a small glimpse of what was to come. I had only 25 days left for CEPT entrance exams & was pretty late when I enrolled in MOSAIC but in the end got selected in both the exams that I gave i.e. B. Planning and Civil Construction ( SBST ) . I would say MOSAIC proves to be a great tool to prepare quickly within a limited time. I used to spend 7 - 8 hours in MOSAIC which gave me the desired results.
Thanks MOSAIC and it's faculties for what they have given to me.”

"Talking about the study material of MOSAIC it contained a wide range of information which has helped me to score in the entrance exams. The versatality and its wide range has helped me to excel in this field.
It was an amazing experience to be in MOSAIC with the faculties. I could definitely not have got such guidance from any other institute like MOSAIC. I was not confidant of getting admission in any good college but the personal attention I got for any problem of mine at any point of time needed made it possible for me to achieve the non-achievable. I am really thankful to you for making me capable enough to be in such a reputated and well respected university( CEPT )."
