Just finished high school and looking forward to further your studies but still in a limbo on what kind of courses you should consider? Or a working individual but want to venture into something creative for more added value to the resume? Or just want to take up a creative course to improvise your skills?
Whatever you are looking for to fulfill, if you are into something creative, I believe Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) has something to offer.
In line with Malaysian government’s initiatives to spur the growth of the arts and cultural development in Malaysia, Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) has recently unveiled its all-new comprehensive Creative Arts College. Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA), formerly known as SNIPS College, is an education arm of SNIPS Hairdressing Group. Since its establishment in 1998, the institute has expanded into other industries from Hair & Beauty to Fashion Design, New Media &
Communication, Filming, Photography, Acting, Hosting (Art & Design Industry), Englishcommunication, Business Management – making it a global corporate expert in these fields.
SCCA is the heart of the company’s ongoing educational platform which opens up an array of opportunities for students to embark on commercial and artistic training.
According to a report by My Performing Arts Agency, the Klang Valley creative industries contributed RM8.99 billion to the country last year; making up 2 percent to the Klang Valley economy. The creative industries in developed countries currently contribute 3 to 6.9 percent to their nation’s economy – this is the new benchmark to reach in order to achieve the government’s aspirations.

Since its establishment in 1998, SCCA has ventured further into other creative arts’ fields; despite starting off as an exclusive hairdressing and makeup institute. The new additions include Fashion Design, Retail Business Management as well as New Media &
Communication (major in Filming & Performing Arts) courses. Through these courses, the college places a heavy focus on imaging, which includes prosthetic makeup and fashion
wardrobe for filming.
SCCA has exclusively partnered with the established fashion school from Italy, Instituto DiModa Burgo (IMB), and the world’s third best Filming Academy, Beijing Film Academy(BFA). These will be building a direct link for Malaysian talents to expand into the international arena. Through its collaboration with Instituto DiModa Burgo, the College hopes to elevate Malaysian talents into the elite Milan Fashion World. As for its tie-up with Beijing Film Academy, SCCA will be able to provide a solid pathway for talents in Malaysia to access the
Asian market through the flourishing market of China. Meanwhile, SCCA’s retail business management course aims to guide students in managing a creative business efficiently. This course content is based on high profile industry inputs from managers and business owners who have substantial experience in the sector.
Dato’ Mike Loh, Founder of SCCA, reiterated, “Over the course of the years, SCCA has evolved into a prominent college in Creative Arts. Complacency has no room in our business
ethics and so, we have strived to position ourselves as a one-stop college for all things creative to hone our Malaysian budding talents.”
“Today, we are proud to unveil our new courses on Fashion Design, Film & Imagingproduction and Business Management. We believe that these industries have strong potentials and this is evident with the growth of the fashion world as well as the film
industry,” added Dato’ Mike.
SCCA has evidently been progressing towards the government’s initiatives by continuously refreshing its creative arts offerings in a bid to develop it as a vital component of the nation’s economy. With the new additions, SCCA now offers courses in Italian Fashion Design, Talent Development (Performing Arts), Film Production, Business Management besides Beauty Technology along with several other short curriculums. The college is also open toward expansion into post-production and digitalization in the pipeline.
Located in the heart of golden triangle in Kuala Lumpur at 6th floor of Sungei Wang, the college definitely offers a dynamic and inspiring environment for students to study while offering an experience like no other in all of its courses.
