Modular arrangement

Modular arrangements may vary depending on the type of post-diploma qualification pursued: Specialist Diplomas or Advanced Diplomas.

Specialist Diplomas can be completed within a shorter duration of one (1) to a maximum of two (2) years, where learners accumulate between 240-300 learning hours. Learners are to obtain two Post-diploma Certificates (PDCs) within the stipulated time period before being conferred a full-qualification Work-Study Post-Diploma.


Advanced Diplomas have a broader scope of training. Learners can expect to complete their course in a year to a maximum of three (3) years, accumulating between 480 and 600 learning hours. Learners are to obtain four PDCs within the stipulated time period before being conferred a full-qualification Work-Study Post-Diploma.


    Frequently Asked Questions

  • Post-Diploma programmes are intended for existing diploma or degree holders who either have entered or wish to enter sectors different from what their prior diploma courses trained them for, and for those who want to deepen their knowledge and skills/or develop specialisations within their trained/new domain areas.

  • Both are post-diploma qualifications. The key difference between Specialist and Advanced diplomas lies in their duration and scope of training.

    • Specialist Diploma courses, lasting between 240 and 300 hours, can typically be completed in about a year or up to two years. They offer deeper specialization within a specific discipline and comprise two Post-Diploma Certificates (PDCs).
    • On the other hand, Advanced Diploma courses, spanning 480 to 600 hours, usually take about a year to a maximum of three years to complete. They provide a broader scope of training and include four Post-Diploma Certificates (PDCs), allowing for more comprehensive skill development.
  • Modular Certificates (MCs) are obtained upon completion of prescribed modules from the Diploma course.


    Post-Diploma Certificates (PDCs) can be obtained with a culmination of the related modules completed from the Post-diploma course such as Specialist Diploma or Advanced Diploma.


    This arrangement is great for working adults who need the flexibility of time as they can choose to complete modular courses whenever they have the time and build towards the attainment of either the Diploma or Post-Diploma qualification.
