These travelogues have been made in collaboration with many organizations, fellow architects, mentors, professors and students we met during the Indo-French, Indo-Korea and Indo-Bangla-French Workshops. These collaborations are a wonderful means of not only knowledge exchange but also learning from different cultures and people around the world.

You can buy as many courses from one payable account. All you have to do is provide emails and other necessary details of the other participants for us to verify. Then sit together and enjoy or participate from separate systems, is completely your choice!

How do I use Zoom?

Complete details of how to use the Zoom software is shared via a video upon registration, which will be a part of your introduction lesson. Apart from that, upon registering for the session, Zoom will send you links to download an app suitable for your preferred choice of device as well as instructions to use the software.

1 review for The Road to Internship – How to Apply for your Dream Internship.

  1. Nimisha Negi (verified owner)

    This course was one of the most amazing courses i ever had on any platform.The course was well organised and articulated.It threw light on various aspects that we skip or are unaware of,during the search of the firms.We are always rushing through the process and searching through web like a maniac,thereby ending up applying in hundreds of firms,saying the same thing to different types of firms,just for the sake of getting into one.Numerous points were discussed to avoid such mistakes and various others in the process.Classes were really interesting,easy to understand and much interactive with all the doubts entertained and solved even in the mid of the session by our speaker,Anuj Kale.Lastly the exercises given for home made us practice on our own and understand the process of getting to our final destination,which were always discussed in the next class and later assessed by the team.
    It was a really insightful course making us aware of the things which we would have otherwise never known.Thankyou Leewardsits.Looking forward for more courses.
