EAE Festival @ NYP


June’s around the corner and that means a few things: school holidays, the Great Singapore Sale, and the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE) for those who are applying to polytechnics.

If you know the ins and outs of the EAE, good for you. But if you have no clue which courses to pick and how to churn out a flawless 600-character write-up that’s part of the EAE application, then we’ll see you at the Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) EAE Festival – where you can get pro tips on how to ace your application.


Explore campus & courses through hands-on activities


Besides a poly’s reputation, other factors like fancy facilities that look like they belong to a movie set can lure the best and brightest to enrol. That’s why it’s vital that you go on a campus tour and check out NYP’s modern facilities.

Mark your calendar: On 4th and 11th June, you’ll get to walk the grounds of NYP, bounce from lab to classrooms and peek inside the training centres. As you make your way around campus, stop and try your hand at a slew of course-focused activities at different schools. That way, you can get a feel of the diploma courses.

Have a go at venipunctures on dummy arms at the School of Applied Science, mocktail making and video producing at the School of Business Management, and app developing at the School of Engineering – to name a few. On top of that, you’ll also meet your future lecturers and senior students on tour.


Get admission & interview tips from experts


On 3rd June at 7pm, catch the online Parents’ Webinar that’s hosted by the NYP Principal & CEO Ms Jeanne Liew, who will answer any burning questions you and your parents might have about NYP and the EAE. After that, join the school of your choice to explore the nuts and bolts of your chosen courses.

Between 14th and 16th June, tune in again online to meet the schools’ lecturers and current students and find out more about the courses offered. They’ll also be dropping interview tips and sharing personal experiences on what it’s like to be an NYP student.


Craft write-ups and build portfolios via workshops


Another thing that can make or break your EAE application is the 600-character write-up you’re required to submit. If you need some expert advice on how to beef up your piece, sign up for a workshop, stat.
