Nanyang Technological University was established in 1991 as Singapore’s second national university. The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences has about 5,000 students and faculty members. The School of Art, Design and Media, with which we are particularly interested in exchanges, belongs to the College and is established in 2005. The School of Art, Design and Media is the only School of Art and Design in Singapore’s National Universities and has about 700 students. There are two courses in the School of Art, Design and Media: Design Art with three majors in Interaction Design, Product Design and Visual Communication, Media Art with four majors in Digital Animation, Game, Digital Filmmaking, and Photography & Digital Imaging. Classes are mostly studio work and small group practical education. This course is unique in that it offers a good education in animation. In addition, the instructors are international, and all classes are taught in English. The multicultural environment of the university is an excellent stimulus for students to learn about art and design.
