Today, we offer 8 full-time diploma courses with a Common Business Programme that allows students to embark on a learning journey to discover their interests and passion. These 8 full-time diplomas are designed to support the three clusters of the Industry Transformation Maps — namely Trade & Connectivity, Lifestyle and Modern Services.

In line with the SkillsFuture movement to provide opportunities for Singaporeans to realise their fullest potential throughout their life, the School also offers an array of diploma and certificate courses for adult learners, as well as customized short courses to meet the specialised needs of the industry.

The School has a team of committed academic staff with rich industry experience and knowledge to provide students with the relevant and up-to-date training in their respective courses. Our goal is to help our students remain versatile and  acquire skills set relevant for the fast changing economy.

Hence, with the strong industry partnership that we have forged, there will be opportunities for students to engage and collaborate with industry partners on real-life projects to enhance learning and to develop communication skills and problem-solving abilities. An industry attachment during the final year will further prepare our students for the world of work and a future of dynamic change.
