Diploma in Accountancy & Finance (DAF) student Arthur Chew's passion for numbers was kindled before he entered polytechnic. After completing his Higher NITEC certification at ITE College Central, he was accepted into NYP through the Early Admission Exercise (ITE).

Today, Arthur boasts several outstanding achievements, such as being in the NYP Scholarship Programme, and making it to the Director’s List for two semesters in a year.

“After graduating, I hope to enter a local university to attain a degree in Accountancy and work as a Chartered Accountant. After working for a substantial amount of time, I hope to return to NYP as a lecturer,” he said.

Another student, Angelin Sng, from the Diploma in Banking & Finance (DBF) has excelled in two of her passions during her time at NYP – netball and banking.

A Director’s List regular, and the ViceCaptain of NYP’s netball team, Angelin is enjoying a holistic experience here and is happy she chose NYP

“NYP SBM has given me a good headstart through internships, seminars and talks that allow me to meet future employers.”

Through the Early Admission Exercise (EAE), Angelin was able to secure a place in NYP before receiving her O-Level results. During the interview, Angelin expressed a keen interest in pursuing a career in banking and was accepted.

Likewise, for Randall Wee Pai Soon, a Diploma in Food & Beverage Business (DFBB) student, he too chased his passion – in cooking. As someone who loves to cook from a young age, Randall decided to make it his career in secondary four.

“I was very sure of what I wanted, and I also desired a better understanding of the industry. That’s why I chose to come in through EAE.”

Randall has expressed gratitude for the opportunities that the school had provided him.

This includes an internship with Rhubarb, a one-Michelin star restaurant.

Randall feels positive towards EAE and recommends it.

To parents out there interested in the admissions programme, he had this to say:

Trust your children. Always give them your fullest support even if they don’t end up making their course their career. Believe in them and help them reach their dreams.
