Higher Education Office


In 2021, the Higher Education Office is open on Mon, Tues, Thurs, 230-530pm, and Wed 9am-3pm. We are not open during public & school holidays, as well as during exam periods.

Due to on-going Covid-19 safety measures, we are unable to see alumni face-to-face in this period. If you have questions or require counsel, please write to us at our email address, and we’ll be happy to help you where possible. Meanwhile, do refer to the guides and material we have made available just for alumni below.

For alumni interested in applying overseas in the new 2021/2022 cycle, our new timelines will be available from May 2021 upon cessation of the current cycle, so keep a lookout on this webpage from then.
