The SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree (WSDeg) is designed to allow students to acquire deep technical and essential generic skills by increasing the work-related components of their studies and enriching their learning experiences. Ultimately, the acquisition of deep skills will facilitate students’ transition from the university to the workplace.

The structure for the programmes, following the Term-In/Term-Out model, remains largely similar to full-time degree programmes at SIT. The full-time programmes run on a five-day study structure with stipulated periods set aside for on-the-job training (OJT).
Year 1 and/or Year 2* SIT students in the following programmes will be eligible to apply for SkillsFuture WSDeg, delivered in the Term-In/Term-Out model:
