Student Life

Our students, prior to graduation, are entirely immersed in the design world though various industry projects and opportunities made available to them.


Classes are made to challenge our students' intellect and creativity. It is an invigorating environment where students and faculty constantly interact through a creative exchange of ideas. A crucial element of the SoFA education is the "Panel Critique" which teaches students how to understand their work and their design process. This, we believe, is essential to producing good design.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Alongside academic subjects, extra-curricular activities are abundant as students get exposed to industry projects and events. The Student Affairs Office maintains a wide network of industry partners and collaborators with whom students and graduates can get connected to for valuable learning opportunities.

Real-World Projects

Students are constantly given the opportunity to contribute and collaborate with companies and industry organizations both in and out of the country. Prestigious companies such as homegrown fashion brand, Bayo, and even international groups the likes of Zumtobel have tapped students exclusively.

Internships and Placements

We are closely linked to the heart of the Philippine design industry. We make it a priority to constantly open doors of opportunity - whether internship or employment opportunities - to our students and graduates.
