What students and parents say
"Everyone's idea and thoughts are respected here."
I can positively say SHSC has made me a better person. It has helped me develop a positive attitude towards my studies and discover more about myself.
I like the activities that happen here, such as the Outbound Adventure trip, Movie screening, Biennale volunteer ship, Women's Day programme, photography exhibition, and more. Brilliant atmosphere, faculty and the PG students are really friendly. And the experiences you ‘achieve' from here that are priceless and worthy. The perfect Kodak Moment. I'm happy that I'm becoming a creative thinker and a better human being. As a whole, I love it here.
"A process of exploring myself."
Being from literature background, media was totally new to the area for me. The family atmosphere at SHSC helped me to cope with a major change in my professional interests. The approach by the SHSC faculty was an immense support for me to adapt to this multi-tasking course.
"SHSC has helped me realise what I'm good at."
SH School of Communication believes in practical exposure. There is a limit to what we can learn and understand from within a classroom, whereas first-hand experience goes a long way. Also, most institutions believe that students can learn only from a mentor, but SHSC has proved that wrong too. By giving importance to peer teaching, we all have something to learn from each other.
SHSC has helped me realise what I'm good at and where I need improvement. The teachers have no qualms in helping you with something, no matter how many times you ask. They sit with you till you get it. And that is more than what you can ask for.
"An enchanting journey filled with discoveries."
Being a part of Sacred Heart School of Communication and their BA animation and graphic design program has been sort of like an enchanting journey filled with discoveries on new cultures and most importantly art from across the globe and learning how to apply these discoveries in innovative ways into the various creative assignments given to us and create something that is our very own. The mentoring system is extremely satisfying where the teachers actually attend to your problems individually and talk to you like a friend rather than a facilitator.
"A wonderful experience at SHSC."
I am proud to be a part of SHSC. SHSC has helped to improve my academic skills. I was guided very well throughout. The things which i learned from here let it be professional or personal have helped me in my career too. Thanks a lot for your valuable guidance and support.
Education at SHSC was a life experience, along with learning it also aided to acquire the skill to unlearn things which is sometimes more important than learning...
You meet a lot of wonderful people at SHSC. Your peers helps you out in your field as much as your teachers. Everyone continuosly refine their skills and helps other to do so.

Teachers at SHSC work closely with their students, which allows them to really understand the strengths and difficulties of each individual. This means you get more support and encouragement in the areas that really matter.
The activities at SHSC helped me a lot with my communication skills, as well as overcoming my shyness. The teachers were always supportive, which allowed me to secure a spot in the industry of my choice.
