Head start with SMU-SIS Advanced Placement Programme

SP announces the SMU-SIS Advanced Placement (AP) Programme for students of  Diploma in Business Information Technology (DBIT), Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) and Diploma in Information Technology (DIT). 

The AP programme allows students with good academic results from the Singapore Polytechnic, School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology (DMIT) in their Year 2 and Year 3 to take up selected two to three university-level courses (equivalent to "modules" in polytechnic) at the Singapore Management University, School of Information Systems (SMU-SIS).

Students can join the AP programme at the end of their first year in polytechnic study. The admission criteria are as follows:
  • A student has attained an aggregate point of not more than 12 in his/her GCE 'O' level, scoring at least A2 grade for both his/her Elementary Mathematics and Additional Mathematics subjects.
  • A student must enrol in DBIT/DISM/DIT diploma and must have attained a GPA of at least 3.7 for the first year of his/her study in polytechnic.
This programme gives students the special opportunity to take one course each in the second and third year of study here in SP. Imagine the chance to be immersed in University classes and interact with undergraduates well before your peers! This will help the student in gaining a better chance to enter SMU for further studies.
