Applicants to the Singapore Institute of Technology now comprise of students who attained higher grades compared to previous cohorts, indicating that the reputation or the university is rising amongst varsity applicants.
SIT, which became Singapore’s fifth autonomous university in 2014, recorded a greater than 20 per cent increase in the number of applicants who scored a grade point average (GPA) of between 3.6 and 4 in 2022, compared with 2021.
SIT president Chua Kee Chaing said that the university has seen a gradual improvement in the academic quality of applicants over the years, especially in the more competitive programmes.
In 2022, SIT increased the amount of time its students spend at the workplace through a new Term-In-Term-Out pathway where they alternate between campus and companies every year. By the end of their undergraduate studies, they would have spent nearly half of their time learning at the workplace.
