Polytechnic

A polytechnic education gives you hands-on experience within a dynamic and progressive learning environment.

There are five polytechnics in Singapore, namely, Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), Republic Polytechnic (RP), Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP). They offer a variety of courses in different fields which lead students to fulfilling careers, as well as preparing them for further studies.

Practice-based Learning
One of the features of polytechnic education is the strong emphasis on practice-based learning. Work attachments with industry partners are part of the curriculum and can vary in duration from six weeks to six months or longer for selected courses. These work attachments will enable you to gain valuable on-the-job experience and provide you with opportunities to work with industry experts.
