The School of the Arts (SOTA) is Singapore’s first national pre-tertiary specialised arts school to offer a 6-year unique integrated arts and academic curriculum for youths aged 13-18 years old.

Set up by the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA), the School offers a dedicated development path for those who have interest and show early talent in the arts, providing a learning environment where both the artistic and academic potential can best be realised.

With a vision to identify and groom future generations of artists and creative professionals to be leaders in all fields, SOTA builds on Singapore’s unique strengths, including her multicultural Asian diversity and globally connected networks to synergise talents and resources.

Criteria for admission

The Talent Academy (TA) is a selection platform which includes live auditions, personal interviews and portfolio reviews with a panel of highly regarded and experienced educators and arts specialists from SOTA faculty as well as resource persons from Singapore and overseas.

During the audition, a student’s potential is taken into account as well as his or her artistic talent.

Students may audition in the following art forms at the TA:

  • Dance (Ballet or Non-Ballet)
  • Music (Instrumental or Voice)
  • Theatre
  • Visual Arts

All TA participants are also required to undergo a writing exercise.
