Foundation Courses

All the undergraduate students at Anant National University undergo a common foundation programme which provides them with a basic understanding of architecture and design fields. As a part of the foundation year, students engage with a set of common courses taught by artists, designers, theorists and performance artists who represent various fields of expertise.

Foundation programme courses are introductory in nature and prepare the students for advanced courses offered during the upcoming years. The programme enables students with practical skills and introduces them to a broad and yet detailed interdisciplinary approach towards a critical analysis of cultural, socio-economic, political factors etc. and their effect on the practice of art and design. The programme acquaints the students with the following courses:

  • Design, Text and Communication
  • Sustainability
  • World of Art

  • Technical Drawings
  • Elements of Design
  • World of Art and Design
  • Materials: Properties and Processes
  • Visualisation and Representation

Note: The courses in the foundation year are subject to periodic revisions and are as per the approval of the board of studies of each programme.

    • About CBCS
    • Credits Required

    The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) is a student-centric methodology that gives students the freedom to choose courses across disciplines. Students can opt for additional courses and complete more than the minimum required credit score in any semester. All courses are allotted credits based on the number of instruction and practice hours. In order to earn credits, students must obtain a passing grade in that course and maintain a minimum of 80% attendance. Credits are defined based on different parameters, such as student workload, learning outcomes and contact hours.


    The advanced design studios taught in the fourth and fifth year are also choice-based, allowing the students to choose micro-specialisations within the architectural domain. This results in 44% credits being offered to students in this system.

    Total Credit requirement for the completion of the BArch degree: 200 Credits
