Beyond the confines of the classroom


Discover the mysterious and captivating properties of chemicals, drugs and materials through an exciting application-based journey with us. The Diploma in Applied Chemistry (DAPC) is the first diploma in Singapore to focus on building a strong foundation in chemistry which provides you the versatility to work in various chemistry-related sectors.


The DAPC course provides the learning environment for you to conduct research on, synthesise and test new chemicals, drugs and materials. By the end of the course, you will be able to solve problems independently and experience what it is like to work at the frontiers of investigative chemistry.


Through a specially developed progressive learning strategy, you will be imparted with knowledge acquisition skills on fundamental Chemistry principles during your first year. In the second year, you are equipped with the skills to perform chemical investigations and interpretation of results using real-life situations. During your third year, you will be able to develop and optimise new products or methods to improve lives, igniting your creativity skills.

Upon graduation, you will be ready to contribute to the chemical, pharmaceutical and materials-related industry or further your studies in tertiary institutions.

Science that innovates for better living

“Enrolling in SP allowed me to build on my knowledge of chemistry to uncover the amazing and unique properties and performance of materials. Lessons were engaging - thanks to our caring and dedicated lecturers. Internship at IMRE helped to beef up my technical and professional competencies, and the experience has enabled me to gain valuable knowledge about R&D work. The three years at SP has shaped me to be a confident and adept individual to meet the needs of today’s dynamic environment. Indeed with SP, it's So Possible!“

Science that improves lives

“My SP journey – via the diploma course - was one of the most meaningful, enriching and memorable experiences. With my lecturers’ unwavering dedication and support, I was encouraged never to give up my dreams, whatever the barriers. Internship provided me a platform to apply knowledge and skills acquired from SP and also enabled me to gain insights into the pharmaceutical industry, particularly the job opportunities. As of today, I am proud to have overcome all obstacles and to have made it to the finishing line!”
