What is the SP-NUS Accelerated Pathway Programme (SP-NUS APP)?


The SP-NUS APP allows eligible students from the Singapore Polytechnic, Diploma in Facilities Management (SP DFM) to take three courses offered by Bachelor of Engineering (Infrastructure & Project Management) at National University of Singapore (NUS) in their final semester with SP (Year-3 Semester-2) in place of three SP School Elective modules. For each completed NUS course, the relevant credit and grade will be mapped to the SP Examination Grading System and reflected in the final transcript of the student’s diploma course.


Who are eligible?

All DFM students, from Cohort 2023 onwards, who meet NUS’s criteria will be eligible to apply.


What are the benefits?

  • Early exposure to NUS courses

SP-NUS APP students will take NUS courses in Year-3 Semester-2 of their Diploma course.

  • Experience University Life while being a student with DFM

SP-NUS APP students will be enrolled in the same classes as NUS’s Year 1 students and will have access to all facilities that are necessary for their learning at NUS campus, offering them a fulfilling experience of university life even before they graduate from their diploma course.

  • Transfer of Credit and Grade to NUS

After graduating from SP DFM, SP-NUS APP students will need to apply to NUS if he/she wants to secure a place in NUS Bachelor of Engineering (Infrastructure & Project Management) (BEng IPM) degree programme. SP-APP students who passed the three NUS courses will be exempted from taking these courses when they are admitted to the NUS BEng IPM degree programme in the future.
