Some of the Key FAQ I found :

Can WSDip graduates apply to progress to local universities?

WSDip graduates can apply to related full time or part-time degree programmes in the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Institute of Technology or Singapore University of Social Sciences, subject to the admission requirements of the university.

Can WSDip trainees still apply to polytechnics after completing the WSDip?

Since the WSDip is already a diploma, there is no need for another diploma from the polytechnics. However, some may wish to pursue Work-Study Post Diploma (Advanced / Specialist Diploma).

In the scenario where the intake period seems quite far off from the Operationally Ready Date (ORD), what can prospective WSDip students do in the meantime?

If waiting time for the next intake period is long, those who are interested can try to get jobs in areas related to the course, in order to better understand job expectations.

Will WSDip graduates get more pay and a higher job rank?

As diploma holders, WSDip graduates can generally get more pay and higher job ranks that poly diploma graduates enjoy. However, it is only fair that companies do so after seeking good work performance as well. With a diploma, graduates are likely to get career advancement and increased responsibilities in time to come.

What do employers look for at the selection interview for WSDip applicants?

Like most recruitment processes, it is important for WSDip applicants to show good work attitude and passion for the job. Being interested in the company and displaying willingness to add value will help the applicant as well. As this is a diploma-level programme, employers also expect knowledge and skills learnt from previous Nitec / Higher Nitec courses.

Can apply to related full time degree programmes? I need more info on this coz I can only find those part-time degree programmes.

Does this means the WSDiploma is equivalent to Poly Diploma? I'm confused.
