Singapore Polytechnic (SP)
What You Need To Know About The Singapore Polytechnic (SP)?
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, officially opened Singapore Polytechnic on Prince Edward Road on February 24, 1959. Dr Toh Chin Chye, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister, assumed the chairperson of the Board of Governors and steered Singapore Polytechnic toward satisfying the country’s industrialization needs. The Polytechnic rebranding began with a new Education Model of the Future programme to unleash creativity and innovation, provide students with a distinctive SP experience and make Singapore Polytechnic (SP) a fantastic place to work.
The Singapore Ordinance, issued by the Legislative Council on October 27, 1954, led to the formation of Singapore’s first Polytechnic.
The Basic Curriculum
The Common Core Curriculum (CCC) prepare students for an ever-changing, disruptive world. There are ten core modules, including rising important human and emerging digital abilities, that will enable you to be versatile and prosper in the future, regardless of industry or employment. The CCC also provides you with an integrated and multidisciplinary learning experience to address the world’s wicked issues as outlined by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN SDGs) in Singapore Polytechnic (SP). These classes will challenge you to think critically about real-world challenges, empathize with local and global people, and use the skills you will gain to impact change to build a better and more sustainable Singapore and the world.
What exactly is a Polytechnic Foundation Program?
The PFP is a one-year programme aimed at the top ‘N’ Level (Academic) students. Instead of continuing with your ‘O’ Level exams in Secondary 5, you can join SP to study for your pre-selected diploma course. You will be offered a provisional place in SP when you enrol in this programme. To progress to the first year of your diploma programme, you must pass a set of modules during your foundation year. But don’t worry; a dedicated team of SP lecturers will do everything they can to assist you to succeed throughout your foundation year.
