For existing and new students, the semester will begin from August 1 and September 1 onwards, respectively. There will be online classes, webinars, masterclasses as per the curriculum and personalized mentoring sessions as per a student's needs. Pearl Academy will also provide them with essentials like ‘Study From Home’ kit to create a home studio. It will include essentials for a fashion class, editing software and apps or drawing tablets based on the requirement of the semester. This initiative has been taken to ensure that students do not miss on practical projects and hands-on experiences due to lack of resources.

On-campus classes will begin from October 1, and it will be the intense phase of the semester. Classes will be conducted all days of the week; there will be extra practical hours and studio hours, two full shifts a day and reduced winter break.
