diploma and degree. The intake for diploma has been declining steadily while the degree
applications have doubled in the last five years since its inception.

Induction
and Tips

At FADA we believe that art, architecture and design can make this world a better place.

We are deeply invested in ensuring that our students learn to be proactive about finding and creating situations where they can put their knowledge, skills, and values into practice. Equipped with state-of-the art, custom-built facilities for each of our design disciplines, the faculty is staffed by highly regarded academics, architects, artists and designers. We offer several specialised workshops, studios, computer laboratories, common lecture venues, an auditorium, a gallery and a subject-specialist library. The Faculty is also home to UJ Arts & Culture, based on the Auckland Park Kingsway Campus (with cultural offices on the Doornfontein and Soweto Campuses), which runs two professional theatres and an art gallery.
