Polytechnics more popular than ever

More people are choosing to enroll in Singapore’s polytechnics because of the endless types of courses offered, more dynamic hands-on curriculum, energetic school life, and of course, good food.

Local polytechnics have frequently made the news for their outstanding graduates. Private institutes also offer countless valuable learning opportunities with a small faculty-to-student ratio.

Just like for 2017, Ngee Ann Polytechnic tops the list again, followed closely by Singapore Polytechnic. MDIS makes it as the only private institute in the top five rankings.
