For me, art does not only refer to design, it also includes music, installation, dance, and many more. Everything that exists in our surroundings could be art, and that is what I am passionate about. My lecturers have good knowledge and experience in the design industry and have been guiding me for 3 years. I would describe y experience here as “Inspiring, Enriching and Fun.”

If you really want to study design, Raffles is the best choice for you.

Raffles has taught me never to celebrate mediocrity, and to aim only for excellence.

Here in RU, I was offered the essentials for my growth, such as a healthy workplace, creative freedom, and a friendly community.

What I appreciate most about the school is how well equipped it is. I often find myself going to school on my off days just to use the facilities or to work on assignments.
