The Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and LASALLE College of the Arts will jointly establish Singapore’s first art university to provide students with more learning opportunities and enhance local tertiary arts education. This private university is expected to be established in the next three to four years and will be able to confer its own degrees. The two institutions will remain distinct and independent private education institutions, and there will be a 17-member Pro-Tem Committee set up to facilitate the tie-up. Both colleges are currently in partnership with overseas universities such as Goldsmiths, the Royal College of Music and University of the Arts London.
