The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), which offers degree programmes for polytechnic graduates, will have 300 more places this year, raising its total intake to 1,300.

Students can also look forward to five new degree programmes, bringing the total number of bachelor’s degree programmes offered by SIT to 21.

The new degrees include early childhood education from Wheelock College in Boston, two design courses on interior design and communication design from the Glasgow School of Art, and two aeronautical degree programmes from the University of Glasgow.

Similar to SIT’s seven current partners, the new partners are highly ranked. The University of Glasgow belongs to the prestigious Russell Group of leading British research universities and counts among its staff six Nobel laureates.
