Extremely long path. Most probably the oldest student in every class

I did spent 4 years in ITE. I can make friends easily in ITE but poly is hard. I just know a few friends in poly but different class. But I still contact him.

In poly, you need to study in group and make sure you can understand or email or call the lecturer for help.

Currently, I'm Year 2 in SP. Still got 1 more to graduate.

I recently graduated from Higher Nitec Year 2.
Was from Nitec for the previous years and jumped on to that by skipping 1 year.

Now pursuing in the Technical Engineer Diploma course . First year. total i will be studying about 5 years in ITE when i graduate. The course itself is 2 years.

Higher Nitec is not so difficult, just need to work harder to go poly. But i did not go to poly despite my good scores because i prefer Technical and Supervisory-Combined Academic Areas than a generalized level. Good thing is the course is pure equivalent to the one in polytechnics.

Just to share that for Technical Engineer Diploma (TED), the only local university you can only go to is NUS part time for Bachelor of Technology (BTech) Programmes [which is different from full time Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)] as what ITE claim. However I have problem finding TED admission information in NUS website for BTech.

So study full time TED do lose out to full time Polytechnic Diploma for entering to local universities.

Gotten some info from the two threads below. If those who studied this TED course wants to pursue a university degree in future, there are few options apart from just NUS btech. Example could be TUM (German Uni) and also Aust Uni. If want to migrate or live oversea, can also consider those options too. Need not stick to just NUS btech only.

Dont waste time doing full time studies at degree. not worth it.
their requirement is you need to have a polytechnic diploma or its EQUIVALENT,
with 2 years of working experience. Having a skill future ( i think) will be advantageous.

To be technical enough... the graduates from TED has went to SIM to further their part time studies, if other school, case by case basis by doing an entrance exam as they recognise this diploma.

I might try to do on the other countries too. worth doing so.

I have read these 2 threads.

1) Nickzz claim that 'also apply for german uni cos got two certs, one from MOE local and other one from German MOE'. To be more detail is one is awarded from ITE while another one is from Baden-Wuittembreg (Only represent a state MOE in Germany and not the whole Germany). Did not read that he is going to apply to that TUM Asia or even get into the university. TUM Asia also did not state that they recognized TED.

2) Why should I waste 2.5 years studying TED in ITE when I can just study Diploma from private school and went overseas for university studies?

1. the certificate to pursue for germany is only given if you have 1.5 years of experience in the industry. The transcript and diploma in english version is given for completion and pass of modules. it was stated unclearly.

2. 2.5years is for culinary arts. ( Inclusive of internship.)
2 years is all engineering course.

I don't understand what you are trying to express.

For part time NUS BTech course, they needs applicants to have at least 2 years of full-time work experience apart from polytechnic diploma. For full time NUS BEng, they only needs applicants to have good GPA results from polytechnic diploma and do not needs any year of full-time work experience.

What is 'skill future'? Do you mean Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ)?

TED only have 3 courses namely Culinary Arts, Automotive Engineering and Machine Technology but SIM GE do not have any relevant courses. I don't think TED is recognize by SUSS (Used to known as UniSIM). So what courses did TED graduates take up in 'SIM'?

For private schools, most likely you can enter as long as you have money. So TED don't really play an important part for entering distance learning degree courses in private schools.

Cause ITE partnership with Institut Paul Bocuse (French culinary school) for Culinary Arts and Carl Benz Schule in Gaggenau, Germany [but certificate awarded by Ministry of Education, Youth & Sports (MEYS), Baden-Wϋrttemberg, Germany] for Automotive Engineering and Machine Technology.

From my understanding for TED, internship (for experience) is a MUST before you can graduate with certificate from ITE. So in a way, it is like you pass internship mean 2 certificate and if you fail mean no certificate at all.
