What You Need to Know about Dasein

“DASEIN” (‘da:za-in), a connotation derived from German philosophy, has timelessly inspired philosophers, artists, writers and creative thinkers alike to discover and redefine one’s true being and existence. Over the years of advocating individual distinction, Dasein Academy of Art has developed a unique set of teaching principles called Edu-mentoring.

Their ideology focuses on incorporating 2 key ingredients into its syllabus for developing young minds — teaching + mentoring, to provide a more people-centred approach in helping students learn. After all, it is through guidance in self-discovery that one’s self-value can be unearthed.

Dasein graduates have consistently achieved high employment rates, with 99% of students employed within 3 months after graduation. This acts as a testament to Dasein’s prowess in producing graduates who are recognised by the creative industry.
