TP students like Phoebe, Ahmad and Diyana are excelling in very different fields. But they do have one thing in common – all secured their places in TP before even sitting for their O-Level exams! Their TP experience gave them the best opportunities to live their passion.
Diploma in Pharmaceutical Science
School of Applied Science
In secondary school, my favourite subject was Science, and I have always been curious about how different drugs are used to treat illnesses. When I knew that TP offered the best Pharmaceutical Science course, it was only right to apply for EAE@TP to further pursue my passion.
MY EAE BENEFIT
“Whenever I feel like there’s an obstacle to overcome, I always think back to why I was interested to join this course and TP in the first place – and it motivates me to work even harder!”
Diploma in Hospitality & Tourism Management
School of Business
EAE@TP was an amazing opportunity to demonstrate the real interest I have for the tourism industry, a passion impossible to see if based on academic grades alone. Getting accepted into TP and my course of choice also gave me more time to plan, prepare and find out all I could about my education and life here.
MY EAE TIP
During the group interview, you must grab the opportunity to speak up. Be confident and use this time to impress the lecturers and stand out from the crowd.
Diploma in Product & Industrial Design
School of Design
Design and Technology was a subject I’ve always liked and was good at. I also preferred an education that focused more on hands-on training. So, EAE@TP in this course was a natural step to improve my skills in the areas of product design, 3D rendering and more. I’m looking forward to my final year so that I can make my ideas come to life!
MY EAE TIP
Use your portfolio to show your passion. I sketched 25 different product ideas centred on plastic waste, and also created a prototype of a foldable food container out of silicone.
Diploma in Aerospace Electronics
School of Engineering
This course was my number one pick for EAE@TP because my dream is to become an engineer in the aerospace industry. TP is certified by the CAAS as a SAR-147 Approved Maintenance Training Organisation, which gives me a significant advantage of having a diploma that is highly recognised by my future employers.
MY EAE ADVICE
If you already know what you want to do, and there is a course that will help you achieve your dream career, just go for it and apply for EAE@TP!
Diploma in Gerontological Management Studies (now Diploma in Social Sciences in Gerontology)
School of Humanities & Social Sciences
Being very close with my grandparents, I wanted to learn more about how to connect, as well as care for them. I also noticed that there’s a shift in our trends and policies to cater for our ageing population and the growing silver industry. As the only poly diploma course of its kind that could match my interests, EAE@TP was a natural choice.
MY EAE TIP
Be sure to highlight any relevant experience you have. I believe my time volunteering at Ang Mo Kio-Thye Hua Kwan Hospital and Serving People with Disabilities gave me an edge during my application.
Diploma in Cybersecurity & Digital Forensics
School of Informatics & IT
My exposure to the basics of hacking in secondary school triggered my interest in the area. So, you can only imagine my delight when I received my successful EAE@TP notification to pursue my growing passion further. I couldn't wait for my Year 2 studies to start to learn more about hacking and how to block cyber-attacks.
MY EAE TAKEAWAY
Knowing that I had secured my place in TP before taking the O-levels took away a lot of stress. I found that I could concentrate better during my exam preparations.
