UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS SINGAPORE
Students who commenced their studies in LASALLE College of the Arts before August 2024 will be graduating with a degree conferred by Goldsmiths, University of London. Students who commence their studies in LASALLE from August 2024 onwards will be graduating with a degree conferred by the University of the Arts Singapore (UAS).
UAS is a private university formed by an alliance between LASALLE College of the Arts and the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. It is supported by the government, which will continue to provide funding for subsidised Diploma and BA (Hons) students, as is currently the case at LASALLE. UAS will validate, confer and award degrees in respect to the programmes offered by LASALLE. It will also support both arts institutions in the provision of a shared UAS experience which includes a common curriculum. All academic programmes will continue to be developed, designed and delivered by LASALLE at its McNally and Winstedt Campuses.
All academic lessons and learning will continue to be delivered at LASALLE’s existing McNally and Winstedt campuses. Meanwhile, UAS Ltd will offer common curriculum modules from the National Design Centre which is in close proximity to LASALLE.
There is only one intake per year, starting in August.
There is no direct transfer arrangement with other universities. If you wish to transfer to another university, you need to apply there and meet their admission requirements.
At the end of your three-year study, you will be awarded a BA (Hons) degree.
You may receive advanced standing or Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) if the qualification you have is recognised by LASALLE, subjected to portfolio/audition assessment and interview. In some instances, students have enrolled directly into the second year of the BA (Hons) programme.
We have provisions for special entry for which each application is considered on a case-by-case basis. Considerations include the standard of your portfolio, references and relevant work experience.
LASALLE reserves the right to cancel any class for pedagogical reasons if it does not meet the minimum class size. LASALLE is unable to accept liability for the cancellation of proposed programmes of study prior to their scheduled start.
In late 1998, the Singapore government announced plans to upgrade LASALLE to play a central role in the development of creative and artistic manpower in Singapore. The upgrading plans included granting LASALLE with financial support from the Ministry of Education. Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents are eligible for subsidised fees for selected BA (Hons) programmes under the Ministry of Education’s Tuition Grant Scheme.
