You probably already know that TP offers over 40 awesome courses, led by experienced lecturers and taught in state-of-the-art facilities. But what else makes us stand out?

Well, location, location, location, obviously!

As the only poly in the east, (this statement is oh so true!), we’re pretty easy to get to – from a selection of bus services to the nearby Tampines West, Tampines and Bedok MRT stations.

With the breathtaking Bedok Reservoir just a stone’s throw away, it acts the perfect backdrop for that much-needed tranquillity after a long day of studies. Not to mention, having a reservoir in our backyard gives us a great excuse to hold an annual regatta, where the entire TP Family gathers for a day of super-charged fun!

For being so awesome, Bedok Reservoir makes this list twice. Not only can you build up your stamina by going for a scenic run but there’s a splashing good time to be had by renting a kayak or, if you can rope in enough friends, a dragon boat!

With shopping centres like Tampines 1, Century Square and Tampines Mall less than 15 minutes away by bus, there’s an abundance of places that you and your friends can head to after class to hang out, catch a movie and get some retail therapy. As if that’s not enough, you can also look forward to chilling at the brand - new, super - huge Our Tampines Hub too!

In the (very unlikely) event you can’t find anything to satisfy your hungerpangs in one of TP’s many canteens and food outlets, take a short stroll across to Tampines St 81 via the overhead bridge. There, you’ll find coffeeshops, eateries, bakeries, bubble tea shops and more! P.S. There’s also a KFC for finger-licking good fried chicken.
