Welcome to the PFP family!

We are thrilled to welcome you to the beginning of an exciting journey at Singapore Polytechnic. Our Freshman Orientation Programme (FOP) is designed to help you transition smoothly into the Poly Foundation Programme (PFP) and make the most out of your time here. Below is an overview of what you can expect and some important steps to take before attending orientation:


FOP Overview

PFP FOP is a compulsory programme for all PFP students. Through this programme, you will get to

  • Familiarise yourself with the campus environment and facilities.
  • Meet your fellow classmates and personal tutor (PT)
  • Receive important information about academic requirements, administrative matters, student services, and co-curricular (CCA) opportunities.
  • Participate in fun activities and team-building exercises to kickstart your journey at SP.

Note that PFP students do not need to attend FO Camps or FOP organized by the other diplomas as those are meant for Year 1 diploma students.


As you enter SP from Dover MRT Gateway, you will be greeted by our friendly PFP Student Leaders (with placards) who will direct you to our registration area and to LT1A for the Main FOP Programme. They will be there from 9.00 am – 10.00 am. Please arrive early as it takes about 15 mins to walk from Dover MRT gateway to your FOP venue.

What to Wear: Tee-shirt and long pants/jeans with covered shoes (compulsory for laboratory tours)
