Can I apply?

You may apply for your desired full-time diploma courses through the Direct Admission Exercise based on your IP Year 4/school-based results if you have completed IP Year 4 (or Sec 4 equivalent) from Singapore mainstream schools (e.g., SOTA, ACS(I), NUS High School, Singapore Sports School).


If you are assessed based on IPY4/school-based results, the course entry requirements will be similar to that for GCE 'O' Level qualification.

For courses under School of Design & Media, you are required to prepare a digital portfolio as part of the application process.

If you are shortlisted for the Oral Health Therapy course, you are required to take a manual dexterity test.
