The Skills-Based Modular Courses (SBMCs) are bite-sized part-time courses for individuals to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills, without the need to pursue a full diploma.
The SBMCs are modules selected from part-time diploma programmes and candidates may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period to be awarded the full diploma qualification. The validity period is 5 years for a CET Diploma, up to 4 years for an Advanced Diploma, and 2 years for a Specialist Diploma and Diploma (Conversion).
To determine the minimum entry requirements, please refer to the module page below. Applicants who do not meet the grade requirements but are assessed as potentially suitable candidates may be considered for entrance tests. Applicants with skills and knowledge from prior learning are also encouraged to apply.
Singapore Citizens enrolled in Skills-Based Modular Courses will receive the same level of subsidies as the equivalent part-time qualification. There is no cap on the number of Skills-Based Modular Courses that Singapore Citizens can be funded for.
Individuals may use their SkillsFuture Credit (given to Singapore Citizens aged 25 & above) to defray the course fee.
