SST-NGEE ANN POLYTECHNIC INTEGRATED DIPLOMA PROGRAMME (SST-NP IDP)
During the SST 10th anniversary celebration on 17 Nov 2020, it was announced by then Education Minister, Mr Lawrence Wong, that SST and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) would offer the SST-NP Integrated Diploma Programme (IDP).
The SST-NP IDP offers a unique STEM learning experience from Secondary 3 leading to a direct Polytechnic pathway to NP. The programme aims to engage students in deeper applied learning across a wider range of STEM fields and capstone projects.
This is the first-of-its-kind STEAM^ – related through-train programme that caters to academically strong students who display an aptitude for STEAM, and aims to equip them with adaptability and resilience to thrive in a disruptive, complex and uncertain environment. The programme will be offered to selected students in the Sec 2 cohort which would be the 2023 first batch of SST-NP IDP students. The programme will provide progression to 20 STEAM-related diploma courses in NP, of which SST is a subsidiary. The unique learning experiences through this SST-NP IDP would cover distinctive curriculum design, support from NP and universities such as SUTD with rare opportunities to work with start-ups, community and industry partners.
Please refer to the link for the introduction to the SST-NP IDP. More information will be shared in July 2022.

- What is the SST-NP Integrated Diploma Programme (IDP)?
The SST-NP IDP is a through-train programme from SST to NP Year 1. IDP students will spend 2 years (Sec 3 and 4) in SST before progressing to NP to pursue one of the twenty STEM diploma programmes.
- What are the criteria/ requirements for my child to enrol in IDP?
IDP is suited for students who demonstrate disposition in Science and Mathematics and a proclivity for applied learning. The overall academic results and feedback from teachers regarding their attitude and aptitude towards applied learning during STEM programmes and performance tasks will also be part of the criteria.
- How do I apply for the IDP?
Selected S2 students who meet the criteria will be given a letter of offer to apply for the IDP in T4.
- Can external candidates apply for IDP?
Currently, the SST-NP IDP is only for SST students.
