LASALLE College of the Arts provides a supportive, progressive and truly inspiring environment for our students.

With a focus on nurturing creative expression, innovation and independence of thought, we encourage students to be inquisitive and original artists and designers. They become highly skilled, and excel both in their chosen specialisms and in their collaborations with practitioners from other disciplines.

The College prepares graduates for sustained and successful careers in the creative industries through a practice-based and industry-led pedagogy. It is a demanding and immersive learning experience guided by an outstanding international faculty, professional artists, and industry mentors. We foster high-level creative skills, but allow our students to assert their freedom to be different, and to chart imaginative new territories – and this is what prepares them for real and sustainable careers in the arts.

We offer an exceptional range of Diploma, BA(Hons) and MA programmes that are well respected in the global arts arena. With a strategic and central location in Singapore’s cultural district, our award-winning, open campus provides a magnificent space and inspirational setting for study and creative exchange.

At LASALLE College of Arts, we work continually to innovate in our teaching and research, and to set new benchmarks in arts education. We believe in our students and their ability to be the pioneers who will help to define the future of contemporary arts practice.

I look forward to welcoming you at our iconic city campus.
