Programme Overview

The Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) is a through-train programme offered by MOE and the polytechnics to the top Normal (Academic) students as part of MOE's effort to offer diverse academic pathways to students. Students enrolled into the PFP will skip their fifth year in the secondary schools and be admitted directly to the polytechnics to take up the PFP in lieu of GCE 'O' Levels. Upon completion of the PFP, they will embark on their 3-year full-time diploma courses as per other polytechnic-bound students. The one-year PFP offered by Singapore Polytechnic (SP) is broad-based and multi-disciplinary and is aimed at providing students with a strong foundation in English, Mathematics and Science. The main objective of SP's PFP programme is to prepare polytechnic-bound Normal (Academic) students for a seamless integration into the course of their choice at SP.

Course Synopsis

The one-year Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) offered by Singapore Polytechnic (SP) is broad-based and multi-disciplinary with the aim of providing students with a strong foundation in English language, Mathematics and Science. The programme offers a practice-oriented curriculum to prepare polytechnic-bound Normal (Academic) students for a seamless integration into the course of their choice in SP.

The SP PFP will be conducted through small-group teaching to ensure that students receive ample support in their academic studies. Active and authentic learning will be incorporated throughout the programme to promote students’ engagement in the learning process. Through multi-disciplinary project work, students will also be equipped with basic Design Thinking skills that will enable them to conceive innovative solutions that meet the needs of users.

Besides the structured curriculum, students will also be participating in out-of-classroom activities such as industry visits and field trips to allow them to connect to their course of study.

"Moving on to my stay here in PFP, what I can say is that, it was life-changing. I had to learn to be independent, learn to be responsible and take charge of my life.

And with all that being said, i came here today to talk about choices. Choices. Every morning when you wake up, you have a specific decision to make. What I am referring to is about whether you want to have a positive or negative outlook on life. This can be easily related to by waking up in the morning and deciding if you should go for your 8am class. Every morning you choose how you want to view the obstacles ahead of you, and how the rest of the day goes will be very dependent on how you made your decision."
