Inscape is all about holistic learning, because we want each student to live their potential, out loud and for the good of the world. Our institution was established in 1981 which makes us the oldest multi-disciplinary private creative arts institution in South Africa.

Inscape is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training as a private higher education institution. Our Bachelor of Design Degree, Diplomas and Higher Certificates are accredited by the Council on Higher Education, and are registered by SAQA.

We know what's going on in the design industry, so our Qualifications, Awards and Short Courses are relevant and include real-life projects. You will have plenty of opportunities to practise what you learn. Work-Integrated Learning is a feature of all our course work, which means you will rub shoulders with guest lecturers from industry, and participate in case studies, field work, site visits, interviews, competitions, workshops and work-simulated projects. You will be mentored. Final-year design students collaborate with best-of-the-best design companies and are confident to enter the business world.

Our competent academic staff presents an exciting, integrated and inter-disciplinary curriculum. You will be exposed to a variety of disciplines, developing skills related to diverse aspects of the industry.

We want you to be a great success. So we've made sure that at Inscape you will have access to cutting edge technology, the latest software, enabling environments, interactive courseware and study guides and unique student-centred teaching and learning strategies. The Inscape team will give you what you need, how you need it.

More than 80% of our design graduates are employed within three months of graduating. And you can't argue with the quality and relevance of our qualifications when 93% of students who graduated between 2007 and 2011 are earning competitive salaries in the design industry.
