the school itself is not bad, they have many collaborations with SMEs. It;s the industry that's the problem, not exactly booming in the locals scene.

It is quite special. There is a unique IT Service Management Centre built for them and what is so good that it is the first in Asia, where students get to practice in a real-life environment while studying at TP.

If you want to go to a local uni or get a scholarship for psychology, I believe JC is a much safer choice. There aren't many scholarships for undergrad psychology (compared to the number of science/engineering scholarships), so it is pretty competitive too.

On psychology, I would like interested students to take note; you aren't a full fledged psychologist unless you get a master degree. You will probably end up as a school counsellor. Also, studying psychology is just like studying bio, its not fun. Its all about purely memorizing framework structure, psychological symptoms.

Are you asking in terms of the studies in Applied Science or the environments?

Nope you do not have to do the same one again, but it might be beneficial since you have some understanding. Not necessary to retake the following sem but better take it in case u run out of time to graduate in 3 years.

They will offer the grant for a max of 10 sems, 8 sems if you start from year 2. Anything more and you'd have to pay on your own.

Re: Temasek Polytechnic. Aye Mates!

Regarding tution grants, how many times can you apply for it? Meaning, can you still have it if you take a diff course in a diff institution, or another diploma?

It's just for once. Even if you pass with flying colors they will not offer grants for your second diploma.
