ITE Courses

New 3-Year Higher Nitec

ITE will introduce a new 3-year Higher Nitec full-time programme from Academic Year 2022. Streamlining the current Nitec and Higher Nitec curricula, this new option will allow students to attain a Higher Nitec qualification directly, in only three years instead of the current four years.

Normal (Academic) and Normal (Technical) students can apply for this new 3-year Higher Nitec programme using the existing Nitec entry requirements.

O-Level and Direct Entry Scheme to Polytechnic Programme (DPP) Normal (Academic) students will join the programme directly in the second year and will continue to attain their Higher Nitec in 2 years.

ITE will adopt a phased implementation approach beginning with eight Higher Nitec courses in Academic Year (AY) 2022:

  • Higher Nitec in Accounting
  • Higher Nitec in Sport Management
  • Higher Nitec in Electronics Engineering
  • Higher Nitec in Security System Integration
  • Higher Nitec in IT Systems & Networks
  • Higher Nitec in Cyber & Network Security
  • Higher Nitec in Business Information Systems
  • Higher Nitec in IT Applications Development

The new 3-year Higher Nitec courses are open to graduating students with GCE ‘N’ Level and GCE ‘O’ Level qualifications.

Students may apply for admission to the eight courses under the first phase of implementation through the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE) in May 2021, or the Joint Intake Exercise (JIE) in December 2021. These students will automatically be enrolled into the three-year curricular pathway leading to a Higher Nitec qualification.

2-Year Higher Nitec Courses
Nitec progression students with good GPA may also progress directly to 2nd year of relevant 2-Year Higher Nitec course.
