In 2007, at the invitation of Singapore’s government, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Asia opened on a three-acre campus in the central region of Singapore offering four Master of Fine Arts degrees within the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television: Animation and Digital Arts, Dramatic Writing, Film and International Media Producing. Students from across the world have come to study at Tisch Asia, producing work that has been screened and received awards at some of the world’s most prestigious film festivals, including Berlin, Cannes and Toronto.
Despite its significant creative success, the Tisch Asia campus failed to become financially sustainable. In 2012, the decision was made to close the campus in summer 2015, thereby allowing all current students to obtain their degrees with a full complement of faculty.
While we are not accepting any more applicants to Tisch Asia, for more information about the campus and its faculty and programs, please visit the Tisch Asia Web site.
