Although the content of these courses are generally similar, there might be differences in the topics and elective, module, or specialisation options offered.
Start by helping your students to find out their interests and aspirations. Encourage them to attend school programmes and events offered by the polys.
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.
Poly adopts the GPA system for grading, so they need to be disciplined to maintain a consistent GPA through their three years.
NP aims to cultivate these three hallmarks in all our graduates — a passionate learner, a big-hearted person and a global-smart professional. Find more about NP here.

In addition to about 25 to 30 hours of lectures, tutorials and workshops per week, they will be exposed to industry-based projects and workplace internships. Ranging from six weeks to six months, these internships, which can include overseas immersion, let students put their learning into practice.
