Can I Apply for Other Admissions Exercises?

Students who accept an offer via EAE(I)​ and have their place confirmed, will not be eligible to participate in all other polytechnic admissions exercises. They will also not be able to transfer to another course within or between the polytechnics. Students are expected to honour the commitment to their choice of polytechnic and course under EAE(I).

​“EAE was definitely a smooth process for me as the instructions are readily available to ease any of my doubts. During my application, I took the chance to speak to many of my connections to find out more about the poly course I was interested in, including my lecturer in ITE who was a former Biomedical Engineering student in NP. I wanted to serve the wider community with my engineering skillset from ITE so NP’s Biomedical Engineering fits the criteria as it allows me to enter the biomedical industry to serve patients.”
