The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) will close the admission exercise for two of the DigiPen Institute of Technology’s degree programmes for the Academic Year 2011/2012 January intake.
The next admission period for all SIT degree programmes will open on 1 February 2012. Applications can only be made online via the SIT website at www.singaporetech.edu.sg.
SIT was established by the Ministry of Education in 2009 to offer undergraduate degree programmes primarily for polytechnic graduates. In partnership with various reputable overseas universities, SIT has brought to Singapore some of the world’s top industry-focused degree programmes targeted at growth sectors of the economy.
Through a unique tripartite collaboration with its overseas university partners and the five local polytechnics, SIT represents a new model that is set to become a key pillar of university education. SIT also adopts a distributed campus model to allow greater synergy and efficiency. Through this model, SIT’s degree programmes will be housed within an SIT building in each of the polytechnics to cater to an intake of at least 2000 full-time students per academic year by 2015.
