Inspiring Tomorrow’s Designers

 

More than ever, design has proven to be the game-changer across many sectors including business, tech, banking, finance and healthcare. By 2025, an estimated 85,000 design jobs will be in the non-design sector.

 

As the first design school in a polytechnic, TP School of Design is Singapore’s leading brand for design education, winning the Crowbar Institution of the Year title consecutively since 2017.

 

Our newly launched Common Foundation programme for all first year students will underpin the fundamental skills and qualities all designers need. Working in mixed classes with peers from other design diplomas, the School will shape and sharpen students’ aesthetic sense, critical thinking skills and awareness of design trends and movements.

 

And if you’re keen on pursuing an education in design but unsure which discipline to specialise in, fret not. Our brand new Common Design Programme will help you learn and explore more about the different pathways in your first semester, before you choose your preferred design diploma.

 

Get ready for lots of real-world industry exposure; you will work with real clients on actual projects and briefs, make pitches to investors, go on internships and be mentored by industry professionals. The excitement does not stop as design is at the heart of customer experience. Through design, you can influence how consumers think, feel and make decisions.
