Hi there! I’m from LASALLE! Hmm... I can’t really compare how easy it is to get into, because it’s the only school I applied to and got in. I did talk to lecturers from ADM (another design sch in Singapore), and LASALLE seems tougher because their standards are higher. I also personally know an ex-lecturer from NAFA, and he said LASALLE does have the highest standards among all the design schools.The question is simple— how strong is your background in design? - Have you been studying or working as a designer before? Or are you getting into this course as a fresh start in your career? When I went to present my portfolio, everyone else in the room weren’t from a design course and had no working experience in design, except me... idk if they made it through though. My portfolio immediately stood out among them, so that put me in extremely good stead. It also gave me a perspective on the competition you’re getting— having studied or worked in a relevant field will shoot your portfolio up among the clouds, wiping away most of the competition. -Now, we factor in time. I get that you’re worried about your 2 months time frame? When I was applying for LASALLE, the thing is... there were 2 application windows, let’s call it the first and second. The first one was the smaller of the two, being open for slightly over a month. The second one (yours) opens for 2-3 months, so applicants in that window get a longer time to prepare. I prepared my portfolio in 2 weeks! (Yeap, it’s possible! XD) So time frame doesn’t really matter, as long as you know how to prepare a killer CV and portfolio! Like I said, this highly pivots around your experience in design. Anymore questions, feel free to ask me

Hey I have applied to LASALLE this year and it's Dec 17 and I haven't got an email regarding admission. Do they send rejection emails or are you supposed to assume you didn't get through ?

Are you a Singaporean? If yes, please ignore everything below.

Otherwise....
DON'T GO TO SINGAOPORE.
I've spent 3 years there. Trust me, you'll ve struggling between anger and regrets.

The weather is terrible. Horrifying. You know what's worse? The people there. They HATE foreigners. You WILL be discriminated against because of you nationality. Worse than that? The government ENCOURAGES this behavior by implementing discrimintory measures/laws.

Not everything you see on TV about Singapore is true. Unless you're super rich, you'll be with people that have completely no idea what etiquette is. (Yes, that applies to 99% of Singaporeans. What you see on TV is always the 1%.) Want an example? They throw shared bikes everywhere, they put their BARE FEET on the bars on bus, etc. If you can't affford to rent a whole house or going everywhere with private cars, don't go there.

Have you visited Singapore? Looks can be very deceiving. DON'T go to City Hall, Bayfront, Santosa, etc. Go north (Yishun) or west (Jurong) and have a look at 99% of Singaporeans instead of the rich few. That's all, it's up to u anyway. Best of luck.
