Our Income Share Agreement (ISA) is an investment in students. Pay zero fees upfront till you are hired with a salary above the threshold amount.
Design Shift Academy believes potential is evenly distributed across society, opportunity is not. Our Income Share Agreement (ISA) allows us to provide an education that is usually very expensive for no upfront cost, without debt, loans, nor interest. Plus, as you make payments toward your ISA after graduation, you’re helping to fund the DesignShift experience for the next cohort of students.
How does our ISA work?
You must continue to make monthly payments toward your ISA until one of the following happens:
- You have paid 15% (Plus GST@ 18% ) of your monthly income for 36 months.
- You have reached the maximum payment amount of ₹ 3,00,000 (Including 18% GST)
- If you did not find a qualifying job in tech for one year after "graduating" from Designshift.
Your ISA is paused if your annual income drop below 5LPA
You pay towards your ISA only when your income is more than ₹5,00,000 per year (₹41,667 per month). If it drops below 5LPA, then your ISA will be paused.
