At ISCA, our programmes are different and so are our faculty members. Unlike some of the traditional courses, our faculty members all have worked in the Design Industry and have practical work experience in their specialist areas. This means that they can share their real-life experience from their design field as well as teach and mentor you to achieve the same industry standards.
Of course, all our faculty members meet the highest academic standards but what really makes them stand out is their love of Art and Design and their individual creative practices and achievements .Our faculty won’t tell you the answers instead they will work with you both individually and in groups to enhance your creative learning. They will present you with design challenges, ask you the right questions and work with you to develop your own creative confidence.
