Poly Foundation Programme

​Ngee Ann’s Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) is a foundational programme for Normal (Academic) students who will progress to their three-year diploma course after completing the PFP year. Every year, PFP sees an intake of about 300 students who will be placed in one of three clusters, based on their choice of diploma programme - Science (FPSCI), Technology (FPTEC) and Non-Science and Technology (FPNST).

During the year-long course, PFP students will take 4 core modules and 2 doma​in specific modules every semester.

Core modules would include foundational modules in Mathematics, English Language, Life Skills and Fitness. The domain specific modules are specifically geared towards students’ chosen diplomas.

For example, Business students would take Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship. The objective of the PFP curriculum is to prepare N(A) students for their three-year diploma programme by giving them the essential, foundational knowledge and skills.

In addition, the PFP will give students a taste of polytechnic life. They will have a good start to navigating life in Ngee Ann Polytechnic.


During the PFP year, students will build their social network and make new friends for the years ahead. The PFP Committee from the School of IS looks after the administration of the programme. Activities planned for PFP students include the Freshman Orientation, Completion Ceremony and various bonding and enrichment activities throughout the PFP year. There are also opportunities for PFP students to participate in external events that will develop them further.

PFP students can also participate in the many Co-curricular Activities available to all Ngee Ann students. PFP seeks to give students the best possible start to their education in Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
