First established in 2002, Republic Polytechnic (RP) is one of the Institutes of higher learning (IHLs) set up by Singapore’s Ministry of Education (MOE), with the mission to train professionals. Over the years, RP has grown from strength to strength building our reputation as a tertiary institution of academic excellence. Today, we are home to a lively community of about 14,000 students and more than 1,000 staff.
It is the first educational institution in Singapore to leverage the Problem-based Learning approach for all its diploma programmes. RP has seven schools offering courses in Applied Science, Engineering, Management and Communication, Hospitality, Infocomm, Sports, Health & Leisure, and Technology for the Arts.
RP is committed to nurturing innovation and entrepreneurial learning in an environment that develops problem-solving skills and lifelong learning opportunities. Its holistic and broad-based curriculum prepares students for an active and meaningful role in society as problem solvers, and respected professionals.
Every RP diploma offered is recognised for articulation into a Bachelor’s degree at a university in Singapore or a top university across the world. RP graduates who are interested to pursue a degree programme with these universities can obtain up to two years of advance standing in the relevant undergraduate degree programs.
