Council of Architecture (CoA) permits various educational institutions to grant admission to candidates in the B.Arch programme on the basis of their performance in NATA. Candidates who qualify the National Aptitude Test in Architecture as per the cutoff score can apply for admission in institutes approved by COA (also called as NATA participating institutes). Currently, over 379 institutes offer admission to NATA qualified candidates who are seeking to pursue Bachelors of Architecture. More than 21,000 B.Arch seats across India are available at the constituent colleges of NATA.
There will be no centralised counselling for admission through NATA. Candidates need to apply for the participating institutes separately.
