Special Educational Needs

Republic Polytechnic (RP) is committed to building an inclusive community, which promotes a culture of understanding, and mutual support that enhances the learning experience and development of students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). 

The Special Educational Needs (SEN) team has been specifically set up to cater for students with SEN. It will tap on relevant resources (within and outside of RP) to provide transition and support services to meet the individual needs of our students with SEN.

Some of the assistance RP provides includes:

  • Academic support arrangements
  • Provision of Assistive Technology Devices and support services
  • Referral to counselling and other support services
  • Access arrangements for assessments*

- Time extension
- Supervised rest break
- Adjustment to test paper format (colour legend, font size etc.)
- Other support measures

*Students can approach their mentor and Programme Chair for more information and to submit their request.

*Certification letter from a registered doctor/medical professional is required. Application is subject to review and approval.
