Adult Learners

In line with SIT’s holistic and aptitude-based approach in assessing applicants for admission, the university duly takes into consideration relevant work experience of a significant duration. As such, SIT will admit adult learners, alongside fresh school leavers, to our undergraduate programmes.

Aspiring adult learners who do not meet SIT’s minimum academic threshold marginally, but have impressive work experience and records, may be considered fairly under SIT’s aptitude-based admissions process. This allows a second chance for candidates who may not have excelled in the polytechnic, junior college, or other educational institutions, but have since done very well in real-work situations.
