Programmes

Polytechnic Open House

Objectives:

  • To understand what polytechnic education is and to experience a slice of polytechnic life;  
  • To improve students’ understanding of the education, various courses and career pathways in the polytechnics; and
  • To develop a deeper understanding of courses so that students can make more informed choices after their examinations by exposure to the potential courses available, their requirements and future prospects.

The Polytechnic Open Houses in the first week of school for graduating students motivated them to set goals for themselves to achieve their future aspirations, to all the 5 polytechnics in Singapore.
