The University of the Arts Singapore (UAS) — formed by an alliance between LASALLE College of the Arts and the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) — will open its doors in August 2024 and start receiving applications in the third quarter of 2023.

UAS will provide some centralised services to both LASALLE and NAFA, which will remain distinct entities, enrolling and admitting their own students and conducting their own courses, though there will be modules offered across institutes.

An MOE spokesman said: "Singapore's future economy will need talent not only from the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines, but also from the arts and humanities, and that is where UAS will come in to nurture them”.
