Our Faculty:

Image of Orita Sinclair School of Design & Music in SingaporeOrita Sinclair has a large adjunct faculty of industry practitioners with significant professional experience and expertise in their fields.

Whether they have started their own businesses or have chosen to remain in the frontlines pushing boundaries, our lecturers bring with them success stories, as well as a wealth of experience suited to helping students develop their portfolio as well as keeping the school curriculum.

As a boutique school with a small cohort, our lecturers are able to commit more time and attention to each student, maximising every lesson and making learning worth the dollar.

The small-class feature is also part of a basket of factors that enables the school to both compact its curriculum and provide a mentorship experience from their lecturers.

Students will be taught the essentials to achieve their professional goals, whether it is in graphic design, interactive media, UI/UX, audio/video production, sound design, songwriting or other related areas.

Location:
The school is located centrally at 1 Kay Siang Road, #06-01/02/10 Singapore, at the former MOE Building, Tanglin neighbourhood.

Student Reviews / Testimonials:

Photos of Orita Sinclair School of Design & Music“Orita Sinclair has given me a lot of good memories. I think there is a holistic approach of practical skills, professional and personal development. The quality of the lecturers really enhanced the learning experience. It’s a space to get your questions answered and grow your own unique strengths while learning a diversity of practical skills. Most importantly, the lecturers embrace different perspectives and methods of problem solving. Orita Sinclair might be small, but the quality of the learning environment and education is very high. It’s essence is like Singapore, small but packs a punch.”
— Adam, Diploma in Design Communication Graduate

“Orita Sinclair (OS) offers scholarships for international students and also guides us in choosing accommodation. Most importantly, I was attracted to OS because of the course syllabus which I found it the most detailed and relevant to my interest, after speaking to Programme Adviser, Wee Leng. Back then, I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and I believed this course would definitely bring me value. I am currently working as a UI/UX Designer for a product company headquartered in America. Thanks to OS, I was well provided with solid fundamental and essential skills to know what I want to achieve in my job after school.”
— Chi, Design in Interaction Design Graduate

"From making new friends to joining the student council, I had a fun and eventful year at Orita Sinclair. Lecturers were friendly and always open to help and give feedback. They taught me how to compose and write my own songs, how to fully utilise a Digital Audio Workstation, and gave me the skills that allow me to be able to wear different hats in the music industry. After graduation, I started Young Productions—a boutique music production and audio recording local company in Singapore."
— Joshua, Diploma in Music Production and Audio Engineering Graduate

"I have only come to Singapore to study for a mere 7 months. As the only son, I did not have any interest in studying and failed to go to university. My parents then decided to send me to SCI to learn English.

I was immediately influenced by the keen learning attitude of the students in SCI. The teachers also inculcated moral values to us, making us feel the passion for learning."
