If you are a student figuring out your next move, and are both enamoured by and attracted to the fascinating media industry, you have landed at the right place.
With a flood of media schools in India, students and aspirants around the country have ample options to choose from. But not all media institutions are Seamedu. Over here, we do things differently, we do things better. Here’s a little insight into what sets Seamedu apart from its competitors, making it the premier destination for media hopefuls.
What We Stand For – Our Philosophy
Seamedu is not a robotic institution where you just rote from books and spew it forth in exams, because we believe you cannot master a discipline as dynamic and inventive as media solely through book learning.
No matter what stream you choose, at Seamedu, your education is hands-on, with projects, practical training and application-based modules making up an integral part of the coursework. Our lessons are designed not just to teach you everything you need to know in the most engaging, instructive and industry-relevant way, but also to ignite imagination and cultivate creativity – important ingredients that any media professional relies on in the execution of his or her day-to-day duties.
At Seamedu, we also don’t believe in binding and restricting our students by geography. Today, these lines are blurring, and particularly in the Indian media industry, the influence of international players is rapidly growing. We have recognised this and have tailored our teaching techniques to reflect a global approach.
Choice Pickings – Our Courses
We do not do things a certain way just because that is the way they have been done in the past. The streams on offer and the variety of options within each stream reflects our dedication to providing the media industry with the most qualified individuals no matter what the discipline.

Leading Lights of the Industry – Our Faculty
There is an old saying, ‘those who can’t do, teach’ – but at Seamedu, we have turned that phrase on its head. We firmly believe that those who have not done, cannot teach. We have ensured that every single member of our faculty – right from the program directors and department heads down to the associate faculty – has a treasure-trove of relevant industry experience. This is important because there is no substitute for experience, and the faculty members’ skills and knowhow results in lessons that are not only hands-on, but also as useful as they can possibly be.
This ensures that once our students graduate, they are already equipped with the knowledge-base, skillsets and technical proficiencies required to transition seamlessly from the classroom to the workplace without any additional on-the-job training or orientation.
The Industry Influence – Our Partners in the Field
We do not just limit ourselves to the excellent in-house team we have assembled, because inputs, developments and insights are also gained from stakeholders who are still actively contributing to the industry even today.
Take a glance at the stellar star-cast of industry experts associated with our programs and see the level of quality that individuals with glittering careers and incontestable reputations bring to Seamedu for yourself. Industry leaders such as these do not take the lending of their names and associations lightly, and their positive experiences with the alumni of Seamedu have led to closer ties with the institute.
Here are a few of them recounting their experiences with our institute:
“After visiting multiple training institutes searching for game-ready students, we couldn’t find any in Pune except for Seamedu. They understood what we wanted & we hired Seamedu students – both artists & programmers – who are still working with us in leading positions.”
– Rohit Gupta, Rolocule Games, Pune
“Students at Seamedu get in-depth, end-to-end experience of learning. Having Chroma and Sound studios is a big plus. Also, knowledge partner tie-up helps students to get hands-on experience and internship at Toolbox.”
– Anoop Chaphekar, VFX Supervisor, Toolbox Studios
The Blueprint – Our Infrastructure and Facilities
It cannot be possible for students to learn everything about an industry built on technology and devices without gaining a strong level of comfort and capability with these devices and technologies. We know this, and so we have ensured that no student is left wanting when it comes to facilities and infrastructure. This way, when students become professionals, they already have a great level of familiarity with the tools they will be using every day.
