It has five campuses across the world – Paris, Marseille, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Sao Paulo. The school invites applications to its Undergraduate Programmes in Fine Arts, Visual Communication, Digital Product Design, Game Art and Design, and PG in Advertising, Design, and Digital Communication programs.

Similarly, the Undergraduate program in Game Art and Design has collaborations with one of the leading game developing companies – UBISOFT. Students also have the option of completing their final year degree at Abertay University in Scotland. Over the four years, students are immersed in the various facets of game development; right from learning essential software techniques to getting an expert in art, the Undergraduate of Game Art and Design Programme aims to create industry-ready students with an acute sense of game design.

Speaking about the commencement of admissions, Mr. Yan Garin, the Country Head of École Intuit Lab, said, “Design is inherently part of French and Indian tradition. India has one of the richest histories when it comes to design and this is why we have not one but two campuses in the country. With these undergraduate and graduate programs, we want students from India to have a host of opportunities and explore the world through their passion for design. Students once again are facing uncertainty due to the pandemic and we want to ensure that the admission process is smooth.”
The campus is located in Prabhadevi, which is the heart of Mumbai, Maharashtra, and well connected to the city through public transport, making it easy for future students to settle down.
