Ongoing ITE students who are currently studying in a course and wish to seek course transfer to another ITE course should apply only during the final application phase.

While all eligible applications for transfer will be given due consideration, meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee a place in the course as admission is also subject to available vacancies in open competition.

If you have graduated from a full-time Nitec/Higher Nitec course at ITE and wish to return to do a second full-time Nitec course, you may apply for admission one year after graduation. For January 2020 intake, you may submit your admission application if you have graduated before 1 February 2019.

Applicants who are ex-ITE students/graduates may be subject to further evaluation at the discretion of ITE to assess their suitability for the course they have applied for.

For an ex-ITE student/graduate who is admitting into an ITE course, you are to clear any outstanding fee payment from your previous ITE course, if any before enrolling in a new course.

ITE will not be admitting International Students with foreign qualifications or private qualifications to its full-time courses.
