Poly education focuses heavily on practice-based learning and hands-on training, so it is important for students to be comfortable with such a learning style.
All polytechnics adopt the GPA system for grading, so your students need to be disciplined to maintain a consistent GPA throughout their three years of study.

Besides lectures, tutorials and workshops, students will take part in industry-based projects and workplace internships. Ranging from six weeks to six months, these internships allow students to put their learning into practice.
