More than just a diploma
In today’s competitive global economy, jobs are increasingly multi-disciplinary in nature as employers demand more productivity from their workers. To help meet this challenge, Temasek Polytechnic introduced a new initiative in 2008 for incoming freshmen specially designed to help you attain an additional certificate whilst you are pursuing your three-year diploma here with us. Together with your Temasek Polytechnic diploma specialisation, these subjects will equip you to handle projects of varying disciplines, giving you an edge over the competition when you graduate.
What is our programme about?
Our Diploma Plus Programme comprises a series of subjects which have been grouped in clusters according to their fields of study. Each subject cluster consists of four fundamental subjects in that given field. If you do well in the first semester of your freshman year and rank in the top 10% in your diploma course, you'll be able to obtain an additional certificate in a field outside of your diploma course of study by completing the four subjects in a specific subject cluster. The subject clusters are:
Students who had done well in their “O” level Chinese and English have an alternative pathway to the Diploma Plus Programme. They are eligible to sign up for the Certificate in China Studies.
