SDM - Early Admission Exercise

EAE is an aptitude-based admissions exercise that allows students to apply for admission to our courses based on their aptitudes and interests.

Successful applicants will receive conditional offers for entry to our courses before receiving their academic grades.

Applicants must meet the polytechnic admission criteria and the minimum entry requirements (MER) of the course they are offered to be admitted.

Join our informative Portfolio Workshop @ SDM to learn more about the SDM EAE Selection Process and how to put together a relevant portfolio for our creative courses!

For more information on EAE, please refer to
