Cape Town is a multicultural city with a diverse history which is reflected on the Inscape Cape Town campus. Nestled near the eastern edge of Salt River, approximately 4km east of the city centre, the campus is situated near trendy restaurants and artist studios. The beautiful city of Cape Town has a strong tradition of supporting design and encouraging local and international design collaborations. Cape Town was the 2014 World Design Capital and hosts the renowned Design Indaba each year. The campus is accessible by car, and for those using public transport, there are taxi and bus pick up points within walking distance from the campus.
The Inscape Cape Town campus reflects the richly diverse, multicultural environment and embraces the creative spirit of the city.
The average day at Inscape Cape Town sees students balancing hard work and play. Lecturers actively facilitate classes and students are engaged, energetic, vocal and collaborative. The lecturers and staff at Inscape Cape Town have built active relationships with local design businesses and suppliers and students benefit from outings, industry visits and talks from leading designers and creatives.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) on the campus ensures that social aspects of campus life are taken care of. At Inscape we strive to create future design innovators and leaders in their respective fields and encourage students to have some fun along the way.
The Cape Town campus has eight studios equipped with 360deg speakers, Apple/Lenovo computers and HD projectors. There is a workshop where students can experiment, create and make as much design products. A well-stocked library, plus a sample library encourage students to read, as well as look, touch and test materials. The student lounge has comfortable couches for relaxing between classes. Coffee and tea is freely available and most importantly a foosball table provides opportunity to play and de-stress.
The campus is open from 07:00 - 19:00, on most week days. Students take full advantage of the free Wi-Fi on campus which allows them to research using the online library, access Lynda.com tutorials and check their assignments on Grammarly.
