Validation by the University of the West of Scotland.

The BA Undergraduate and MA Postgraduate degree programmes in Creative Arts & Design have been validated by ISCA’s partner university, the University of the West of Scotland (UWS). This means that graduates from these programmes will be awarded a degree from UWS as well as from Jain University.

These programmes are designed in India to meet the growing need for creative design expertise in India and beyond, while adding the international expertise that UWS can provide and the benefit of a highly valued UK degree.

ISCA’s partnership with UWS is based on shared values and goals such as, career-focused teaching and employability, world-leading research, an international outlook and a far-sighted approach to technology and innovation.

UWS and ISCA and indeed the whole ISDC group, which ISCA is a part of share a common purpose to:

  • to change lives,
  • transform communities
  • encourage entrepreneurial thinking
  • make a difference to the communities that we respectively serve.

ISCA and UWS share a commitment to developing a culture and environments where our students and staff are motivated, encouraged and supported to be highly creative, independent, creative thinkers and leaders.

This commitment has already been demonstrated through ISDC’s partnership for the delivery of BA Honours’ Degrees in Business and MBAs and is now proudly extended to creative arts and design, where our shared focus on innovation, business acumen, employability and technological enablement are truly aligned.
