Personal Mentors (PEMs)


These PEM – or PErsonal Mentors – are similar to your secondary school form teachers. They are here to guide you, offer you support and help you in your journey through poly. Our lecturers all come with a truckload of experience so be sure to tap on their professional expertise. And if you have personal problems, they’re always there to provide a listening ear and encouraging words.

You'll hear from them soon or meet them during your first week in school. Stay tuned to your NYP email for more updates! 


General Studies Modules


What’s cool about poly studies is that you also get to learn about things outside your chosen diploma. These are called General Studies Modules (GSMs). To name a few, we have modules like 3D Print Your Design, Science Behind Skin Care, and Coding for Beginners. With more than 80 GSMs to choose from, you’re definitely spoilt for choice. For more information, head here.

Students who are in the Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP), this doesn't apply to you as you will not be taking GSMs during PFP. :)
