LASALLE College of the Arts

LASALLE College of the Arts (informally LASALLE) is a publicly-funded post-secondary arts institution, and a soon-to-be University of the Arts by 2023 in alliance with Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore.

Founded in 1984, LASALLE has eight art and design schools that offer more than 30 diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in contemporary arts and design education. LASALLE’s bachelor’s and master’s degrees are validated by Goldsmiths College, University of London, one of the leading universities in the world for arts and humanities.[4]

Many leaders in the Singapore arts scene are linked to LASALLE, including Alan Oei as artistic director of The Substation and Eugene Tan as director of the National Gallery Singapore.

LASALLE is a partner institution of Goldsmiths, University of London. Goldsmiths has approved LASALLE as an appropriate tertiary institution in Singapore to offer degree programmes leading to Goldsmiths’ validated awards. All degree programmes offered at LASALLE have been designed and developed by LASALLE to fulfill the needs of the creative industries in Singapore and Asia-Pacific. These programmes have been validated through a process of external peer review by Goldsmiths’ College, University of London, as being of an appropriate standard and quality to lead to a Goldsmiths’ award.
