The Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) is Singapore’s pioneering arts institution, established in 1938. Over the decades we have nurtured many diverse, award-winning artistic talents who are today trailblazers in their fields. 

We offer foundation, diploma and degree programmes, through our three faculties and with overseas partner universities. 

All our students will enjoy a strong industry-led and experiential learning journey in their inspiring arts education with us. Our programmes, which are backed by years of heritage and strong pedagogy, will ultimately empower our students to have the courage to create as they continue to grow through the arts they pursue.
