On further education, we provide general information and help students who need guidance in the university search and application process. Our Career & Education Services Centre contains handbooks, catalogues, test preparatory software and guidebooks on various study local and overseas study. If you need more comprehensive counselling, you may have to approach the official education centres/ representative offices for assistance.
To date, there is no single official body in Singapore that is responsible for the recognition of overseas institutions and the courses that they offer (including distance degree programmes). If you intend to pursue a professional degree (accountancy, architecture, dentistry, engineering, land surveying, medicine, law, nursing, pharmacy, veterinary science etc) and wish to seek local professional registration, do check with the respective professional bodies in Singapore on recognition and accreditation of the degree programme.
Popularity depends on individual preference and perceptions. It is subjective. Please check with prospective employers for their preferences.
When choosing a university, it is important that you consider these factors:
It depends. TP has articulation agreements with many universities in various countries. The amount of exemptions you'll get depends on your grades, the relevance of the diploma to degree courses and the institution that you are applying to.
Our advanced standing list is not exhaustive. There are many universities that are not on the list but would probably provide some exemptions to our students on a case-by-case basis. When in doubt, send the university admissions officer your transcript and course descriptions for evaluation.
No. We strive to provide impartial advice to students. As such we do not recommend one university over another.

From time to time, some universities do send information on their scholarships to this office. This, however, is quite limited. There are some organisations (government bodies, foundations, international aid and development agencies and, private companies) that offer scholarships for international study. It is up to individuals to find all possible funding sources. Many universities do offer their own scholarships. However, the scholarships available for international students are limited and competition is intense. Students are encouraged to check the universities' websites and the official education centres for available scholarships.
The course manager/academic adviser in your school should be able to guide you in identifying your academic pathway. The Diploma to Degree Pathfinder will also be a useful guide.
You can obtain your transcripts from TP's Student Services. For course descriptions, approach the course manager/academic adviser in your school.
