SIT was established in 2009 as an initiative by the Ministry of Education to provide upgrading opportunities primarily for polytechnic graduates.
Applicants, regardless of nationality, should present a Diploma from one of the following Polytechnics in Singapore to be eligible for consideration:
Final Semester Polytechnic students may apply for admission with their first five semesters' results within the stipulated timeframe. Students must then upload their 6th semester result upon receiving it, as proof that they have graduated from their diploma courses.
Please refer to the list of relevant polytechnic diplomas for the respective degree programmes.
Applicants with certain medical conditions may still apply for some programmes. Please read Special Medical Conditions to Note for more information.
Former or current students of the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore Management University (SMU) or Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) seeking admission may also apply.
SIT adopts a holistic approach in assessing applicants for admission by considering the following criteria:
* SIT accepts applications from polytechnic graduates who did not sit for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Levels and have come through other forms of secondary or post-secondary education.
SIT’s overseas university partners may have additional admission requirements. Applicants must refer to the list below to ensure that all additional requirements are met in order to be considered for admission.
