The Singapore Institute of Technology will be increasing its annual intake to 3,200 students by next year.
According to SIT president Chua Kee Chaing, the institution has received a total of 13,000 applications for about 3,000 places last year.
“We are the first university of applied learning in Singapore and despite being a young university, we are already the third largest by intake,” said Prof Chua.
Prof Chua also emphasised the importance of SIT’s close collaborations with industries that factor heavily into its Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), a trademark of an SIT education. Through the programme, students are attached to a company for between eight and 12 months, giving them a taste of working full-time.
