Admission to Part-time Higher Nitec Courses


You are eligible to be considered for admission to a course if you:

  • Are at least 18 years of age as at 1 January of intake year.
  • Are physically, medically, and mentally fit to pursue the course. (Students who are unfit, may be withdrawn from the course or considered for other suitable courses.)
  • Are free from colour appreciation deficiency or passed an admission interview (and admission test, e.g. drawing test) where applicable.
  • Meet the minimum entry requirements (MER) for the course i.e. completion of GCE ‘O’ or relevant Nitec in Services/Technology qualifications. (Applicants who do not meet the MER may take an Entrance Test to assess suitability for the course.)

Entrance Test

Applicants may apply to sit for an Entrance Test at any ITE Customer & Visitor Centre (CVC). For details of the CVCs at ITE, please click here. The fee is $10 (inclusive of 7% GST) and the duration of the test is about 1 hour 40 minutes. The test result will be known on the same day of the test.

New applicants who are SCs/SPRs are encouraged to apply online (Web application) from any Internet-ready PC during the application period. (Applicants may choose to make online payment following their enrolment into a module.)

ITE’s refund policy will apply for withdrawals as a result of the verification, including for the following scenarios:
