What Is it?

The SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programmes allow students to acquire deep technical and essential generic skills, which will facilitate the students’ transition from the universities to the workplace after graduation.

The programmes achieve this by featuring curricula that closely interlace institution-based learning with structured on-the-job training, and by partnering with companies on the development and delivery of the respective programmes.

The SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programmes will be launched by the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), starting with the following programmes and partner companies:

How Does It Work?

The new SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programmes will generally be delivered in either of two modes:

  • Term-in/Term-out: students alternate between spending one to two terms (or trimesters) in university and at the workplace; or

  • 4-day Work/1-day Study or 3-day Work/2-day Study: students alternate between working three or four days in the partner company, and studying in university for the remaining one or two days each week.
