    As far as Indian Education System is concerned there is no particular stream for your desired graphic designer study. But yes there are wide variety of courses in which you can for sure learn graphic designing. But I must recommend you to complete 12th + side by side you can go for courses.

    As In my case I opted for Information Technology stream (vocational course) in which I was taught about different programming languages and computer related subjects. And after studying that for 2 years I have enrolled myself in learning Graphics and Animation/VFX via a private institute and I was taught about illustrator, and various graphic software’s.

    So the conclusion is you can opt for course which helps you to learn your desired stuff.

    Hope this helps you in anyway.

    In order to become a Graphic Designer, you will have to wait till you complete your class 12. After which you’ll be eligible to enroll in a degree course related to designing. This was the situation 5 years ago.

    Today there is no age barrier. There are a lot of avenues for you to learn Graphic Design. You just need to practice & practice.

    Now,

    I’ll recommend you not to join any institute, because:

    1. They are very expensive.
    2. Very time consuming (1.5–2 years)
    3. Only teach you the software (which you can learn on YouTube as well)

    So, can you learn it online?

    Of course, you can and you should. (considering the Pandemic)

    However, the biggest problem (most people don’t realize), is that Graphic Design is not about learning the software, it is about conveying an emotion/ message to your customer through visuals.

    99.9% of the courses (both online & offline) out there only teach you the software (which is not helpful at all).

    Result – cutthroat competition.

    Due to this reason, you’ll find so many people saying that “Graphic Design has no scope”. Simple reason, people don’t have the right knowledge.

    So remember . . . . . . .

    Software is just a tool, what really makes you a kick-ass Graphic Designer is your knowledge of design and your creativity.

    Now, keeping all this in mind I’ll recommend you some Youtube channels that’ll give you the real knowledge and processes to create awesome designs. Basic to Advanced.

    1. Satori Graphics
    2. The Futur

    I believe you’ll benefit a lot from these channels.

    Best Wishes
