Further Study for New Modular / Part-time Diploma

1.  What is the progression path for graduates of the new CET/Part- time Diploma programmes?

Graduates of the new CET/Part-time Diploma programmes who wish to progress to degree programmes after the diploma can be considered for relevant degree programmes. They may be required to complete a bridging programme to strengthen the academic foundation in specific areas required by universities.


2.  Which universities can I apply to after I complete my CET/Part-time Diploma?

You can apply to part-time undergraduate programmes which are relevant to your diploma course at NUS and UniSIM.


3.  Will I need to take any bridging programme?

The revised CET/Part-time Diploma is intended to be more accessible to the workforce, and is made shorter in duration compared to the Full-time Diploma because broad-based interdisciplinary modules, final year projects and internships, as well as academic modules such as Mathematics and Sciences, are omitted. As such, most part-time undergraduate programmes would require you to go through a bridging programme to prepare you adequately before admission.             


4.  If I need to take the bridging programme, how much will it cost and how long will it take?
While the bridging programmes are currently being worked out by the polytechnics and universities, the duration will depend on the type and nature of the part-time degree course that you apply for, and are expected to be between six months to a year. The fees will not be more expensive than undergraduate modules of comparable duration.
