We follow pedagogies inclusive of nationally and internationally recognized methodologies and would benefit both students and educators. We take due care to ensure consistency in research to bring on board the best teaching contexts and boost an equitable learning experience for the students.
Our pedagogy is induced with interactive sessions, transdisciplinary theories, evaluations, activity-based learning, and feedback. It helps us to intensify our vision of enhancing academic standards and encourage an environment where the students are supported at every stage of their learning process.

It is a form of learning where the students work together, generally in small groups, to self- learn. It allows them to facilitate their learning by discussing, explaining topics, and solving problems in their own ways. It is a great way to encourage collaborative learning and stimulate teamwork as well as leadership skills among them.


Curriculum innovation at AAFT University is an integral concept that designs different learning experiences that can lead to better learning outcomes. We ensure that the curriculum and pedagogy of all our courses not just meet the requirements of the regulatory bodies, but also surpasses them. For this, we have embarked on a transformation practice to design and implement a curriculum that would nurture the aspirants in a way such that they can lead the revolution in the media and arts industry.

A mix of educational visits, industry certifications, workshops, practical examples, live projects, brainstorming sessions, etc. is used to constructively align the intended learning outcomes with our curriculum, teaching methodologies, and assessment strategies. The focus is on skill enhancement which can lead to comprehensive professional development. Curriculum innovation also blends technology with content to expose students to the learning experiences that can enhance and deepen their industry knowledge and understanding from fashion to journalism, management to animation, advertising to cinema- all schools ensure industrial visits that allow the students to acquire first-hand experience and make them capable to apply classroom learning to real-life situations. Guest lectures and practical sessions by international experts are a key force in imparting global exposure and learning at AAFT University.

This also extends a robust foundation to deliver the best industry academia interface through which the students can develop practical skills and competencies in the context of knowledge. Transforming the curriculum requires extensive research and analysis, planning, coordination, proposals, votes, and meetings on our part. AAFT University follows a standard process and practices for curriculum innovation. The Board of Studies, which comprises industry and academic experts, and seasoned professionals, discuss and vet the amendments in the curriculum every year as per the latest trends and techniques prevailing in the industry. This allows every student at the University to become capable of meeting the industry standards and expectations.

Curriculum innovation reflects our efforts of fostering a visionary culture to encourage and hone those who wish to improve and strengthen the media and arts community. We feel honored to comply with our role and be associated in bringing transformation in the media and arts education, and thus, creating an army that can lead the future of the creative art space.

Mentoring and Advising

Student success is at the core of any academic institution, and we at AAFT believe that it is a shared responsibility. The school offers a unique mentorship program where students have the opportunity to develop a relationship with a faculty member who can become a role model and advocate for the student by offering support and counsel.

At AAFT University, we believe in philosophy. Mentorship of all sorts can greatly enhance students’ experiences and assist them in actively engaging in educationally-purposeful activities that are known to improve their success.  Mentoring can assist students in engaging as part of a larger community; it can strengthen their ability to recognize their skills, abilities, and interests, and assist them in thinking through and accomplishing long-term goals.

Mentorship at AAFT can take several forms, including career exploration and life skills development. By pairing faculty or staff members with students over the course of a school year, with scheduled meetings in a comfortable environment, the students will be given the opportunity to talk about their academic needs, share their goals, and discuss concerns and needs. The mentoring activities and support encourage academic excellence, self-esteem, and personal growth of the students.


Peer-to-Peer Learning is an education system wherein students collaborate to study together and achieve educational goals. They work through classroom discussions, assignments, and new subject material to better understand a topic.

The objective is to transfer knowledge, skills, and experiences from one student to another in a friendly way. It encourages open discussion, enabling a free flow of doubts and queries, creating a conducive learning environment and promoting peer support.


We follow the peer learning system religiously at AAFT University. All students participate in activities and assignments where they discuss the subject in-depth.

LearnZilla, our online learning platform, is a space where students can discuss topics, post queries, and answer reading assignment questions. It helps create an amiable atmosphere and nurture academic excellence in every student.

Senior students at the University take the responsibility of helping out their juniors, especially those facing difficulties in learning. When peer learning happens in the same class, the students review the assignments and give grades to one another. Students are guided on accurately conducting peer assessments and providing productive feedback to fellow students. This allows them to learn to adequately direct others, assist them, and share knowledge in the right way, thus boosting the overall learning process at the University.


Peer Learning is one of the most efficient ways of education that allows students, especially slow learners, to understand the subject thoroughly and ask questions without hesitance from their friends/ seniors.

The whole system helps students to get opportunities and enhance experiences for personal learning. It helps them to feel more supportive and confident. It also is a great way to get feedback and suggestions on one’s work and current knowledge. It lets the students build the habit of responding constructively to criticism. They also develop vital skills like teamwork and cooperation through peer learning, which ultimately helps them to scale up their professional journey.


Assessments and Evaluations are an integral part of the University curriculum. Assessment refers to the
systematic process of reviewing students; learning. Evaluation means measuring the students; understanding of the subject through grading and reporting. Regularly reviewing the student;s academic performance allows us to build strategies and promote pedagogies to enhance the learning experience
and refine the outcomes. At AAFT University, we use different methodologies to complete our Assessment and Evaluation processes. Along with conducting traditional assessment methods like examinations, we also organize quizzes and learning activities such as group projects, symposiums, presentations, etc. Evaluators work through formative and summative formats to check the student;s progress in real-time. We believe that students must not just memorize the matter but also contemplate the subject;s meaning.
For setting and finalizing the examination question papers, the University follows a vetting process,
wherein an external board comprising academic experts check the quality of question papers. It ensures
that the University has followed the prescribed structure and protocols of question setting and that the
set question papers are at par, subject relevant, free of any mistake, and truly examine the students;
Once the examinations take place, we follow three checkpoints for paper checking. After regular
checking of the answer sheets, a moderation process is followed, wherein random sampling is done in a
pre-defined proportion. The selected papers are then rechecked to scrutinize and assess the marking
style by the moderator. It ensures that every checker has followed the same guidelines and marking
techniques. After this, the worksheets are remoderated to check for any inconsistencies.
All these three practices of question vetting, moderation, and remoderation ensure quality retention in
assessments and evaluations. This strict process allows the University to achieve the common goal of
academic excellence by ensuring that students are truly and fairly evaluated.
