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. It offered 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 – including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States – have come to study at Tisch School of the Arts Asia.
Despite the best efforts of NYU and the Singapore government working together for the better part of 2012, we were unsuccessful in developing a sustainable financial plan for the campus. The decision was therefore made not to accept new students, and to close the campus in summer 2015, thereby allowing all current students to obtain their degrees with a full complement
