The Open Window is driven by a vision of progressive creativity and is committed to creating a balanced student life − the campus promotes a safe and welcoming environment where students can develop on a personal and academic level.
As innovators, trendsetters and creative thinkers, students have access to state-of-the-art studio facilities, including photography, film and television labs. This dynamic experience enables students to develop as artists, designers and scholars.
The creative energy on campus allows students to discover their passions both inside and outside the classroom.
Study & Career Support
With Emelia de Beer at the steer, Student Affairs supports students on a personal, emotional, social and academic level.
Student Affairs coordinates and manages internship programmes with interested companies and provides graduates with placement opportunities.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
The Open Window has a strong Student Representative Council (SRC) that plays an active role in social activities, charity events and advocacy.
Importantly, the SRC helps shape the academic environment at The Open Window. Its primary role is to act as an intermediary between the students and management. As such, the SRC voices any concerns, recommendations and complaints students may have. At the same time, it also acts as a channel through which The Open Window can reach its students.
