Huge rise in number of schools causes “big crisis” in Indian architecture education

India Education News    

Architecture education in India is in crisis with a shortage of teachers, overcrowded classes and widespread cheating by students, according to architects in the country.

A huge expansion of architecture courses over the last few years has led to overstretched and under-qualified staff teaching classes of up to eighty students, Dezeen has been told.

Students regularly cut corners by paying for others to write their theses, prepare their renderings and build their models. These services are openly advertised on social media.
