I have done my bachelors in Civil Engineering. I want to pursue Masters in architecture either in India or abroad. is it possible?

Deblina Maity 20th Feb, 2020

Yes, it is possible to do M.Arch. in India. But, there are only few colleges who provide this option and also you will get only two or three streams under M.Arch which are related to civil engineering like urban planning and development. But in abroad as they provide interdisciplinary courses so you have better options and scope.

I want to know whether NEET is required to study medicine in Italy because all the universities have explicitly stated that passing the IMAT is the only requirement. Im applying from India and planning to write the IMAT next year. Do I need NEET as well?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 6th Nov, 2019

Dear Kevin, NEET is the mandatory exam you need to qualify for studying Medicine in India and foreign countries. IMAT is conducted by the Italian Ministry of Education to study specifically in their country. But NEET is the first entrance examination that you need to qualify even to send your application to the Embassy for a student visa. So if you want to study in Italy, NEET and IMAT are mandatory. NEET is the primary requisite for you to be able to apply for Medical Colleges abroad and IMAT for you to be able to apply for their Universities.
