Being a diploma holder isn’t rare now. According to studies, over 2 million people graduate and finish their diploma courses in Singapore yearly. There is competition everywhere, and most of them might struggle to enter the career they studied or envisioned. Skills are the stepping stone that makes you stand out more in a competitive situation.

Specialist Diplomas, also known as higher diploma courses, are designed with proper practical exposure in chosen fields and have an entry requirement of at least a diploma. It is on the same level as an associate degree or certificate/advanced certification but below a bachelor’s degree.
