Universities in SE Asia degree in metalsmithing?


#1

Just thinking of options currently and I would love to be able to
take a degree in metalsmithing and jewelry in Thailand - or any
other SE asia country (preferably not Singapore as I could not afford
to live there :wink:

Does anyone have any links to universities that offer anything
interesting?

Thank you
Lucy

I am not aware of any educational metalsmithing programs in English.
If you find any, make sure it is not designed for bored western
housewives… A better bet would be to find a position as an
apprentice in a factory or a workshop… again, language is
important…

good luck

This is a bit vague, but I know that Loughborough University in the
UK have an exchange programme with a Singaporean uni, and some of the
students are in the art and design school - us Brits are famously bad
at learning foreign language, so presumably there is some kind of
support of English speakers. I can contact one of the Singaporean
exchange students to ask, if this sounds like it might be worth
following up. Contact me by email if you are interested…

I do not know the quality of the Raffles Schools, but they have one
in KL Malaysia that has jewellery classes. It would be a less
expensive place to live than going to Raffles in S’pore.

My husband (from Singapore) said if you could get a job with a
multinational company in S’pore, then they would likely pay for your
living and education. I was think, too, if you get involved with an
ESL program, they give living stipends and you might be able to
support your education.
