Be part of the creative economy

There is a real need at this point in Singapore's creative history to provide lessons that deal with the practices in today's leading agencies. Making it a diploma level will significantly increase the standard of creativity as it will be taken more seriously. The syllabus covered by Singapore Polytechnic is relevant and vital to the growth and understanding of today's up and coming creative talents.
