Further Studies

RP opens the door to a world of possibilities and lifelong learning. Our diploma programmes lead to relevant degrees with top universities in Singapore, Australia, the UK, and Europe. In fact, many RP graduates have pursued further studies at top universities and attained numerous achievements and accolades.

In many cases, RP diplomas are also recognised to be equivalent to first-year undergraduate degrees in their respective fields of study. This means your child can complete their degree programme a year earlier than their peers!
