Deciding on what to do after four years of secondary school education can be a daunting task. Apart from understanding what your desired tertiary institution has to offer, it is also important to consider the life skills that you would gain when you step into the workforce.

At Republic Polytechnic (RP), students can expect to receive a comprehensive learning experience that sets you up for career success right from the get-go. Using the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach, RP has come up with a specialised curriculum that equips students with lifelong learning skills that increases their job prospects as well as a collaborative attitude that enables them to think critically in the workplace, all while allowing them to grow as an individual.


Just take it from Kenneth Gwee, one of the stellar alumni from RP who benefitted from PBL well beyond the classroom. As an aspiring doctor, Kenneth had initially started out on a different tertiary path before deciding to pursue his interest in Biomedical Sciences at RP – and he never looked back. Through PBL, he was able to gain a dynamic learning experience which motivated him to be constantly produce the best results. His grit and tenacity eventually paid off as he was accepted into NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, where he’s currently studying and preparing to be a doctor. Although he has yet to complete his degree studies, the future already seems bright for Kenneth!

In addition to Kenneth’s success story, RP has also helped to create many more accomplished graduates who have since made a name for themselves in their respective fields. This includes familiar faces like MediaCorp actor Ian Fang, Tosh Zhang of Ah Boys To Men fame, and a quarter of The Sam Willows, Benjamin Kheng.
