Studying at St Pauls was by the best learning experience I’ve had till date as this institute not only focuses on the theory aspect of the media industry but it also floods you with a tremendous amount of practical knowledge, which is really helpful when you actually get out there in the real world to work.

We started with the basics; I will never forget the initial lectures in which we got a detailed understanding of news. We also gained first-hand news experience with our student paper, SPICE Enquirer- The Activist. The City Reporting module helped me explore Mumbai, a city to which I was a newcomer. With our Law and Media classes, I was able to enter the ATS Office and the Police Commissioner’s office. While working on a documentary, I got an insight into the lives of the underprivileged and marginalized. During the broadcast module, I became more camera friendly and interviewed politicians. SPICE has brought me to a point where I can proudly call myself a journalist.
