Abstract

The University of Notre Dame Australia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with La Salle SIA College of the Arts in Singapore.

This Memorandum will allow students from Notre Dame and La Salle to take part in an exchange program to study Theatre Arts or Communications at either university for a semester.

Notre Dame’s Dean of the College of Arts, Associate Professor Simon Adams said, “As a Catholic University and a private institution we are committed in terms of our mission and geography to build a strong relationship with Asia.”

“We would like to further build and maintain our ties with Singapore, considering that outside of Singapore, Perth has the largest Singaporean community in the world.”

“We will also be exploring the opportunity for these students to visit the Broome campus,” he said.

La Salle SIA College of the Arts has around 1500 students and offers the widest range of Arts programs in Singapore. It was founded by De La Salle brother, Brother Joseph McNally in 1984.
