We’ve already recognized the need for stronger IT expertise in Asia way back in 1983. This was when there were not many tech courses and coding boot camps did not exist! For over 34 years, we have been able to refine our courses to better address the need for IT-related skills, culminating in us attaining the 4-year Edutrust certification since December 2016. Check out our programmes listing page to discover the wide range of courses we have to suit your needs!

2. City Campus conveniently located at the iconic National Library Building

Did you know that the National Library Building has won top local and international awards for its uniquely green architectural design? Students studying in our classrooms at Level 13 also enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the Singapore city-scape. Once you’re done studying, why not explore the Bugis area – a well-known cultural, gastronomic and shopping hub in the city centre. And yes, we’re situated in the city centre so that its easy for you to commute back and forth. 

3. 80% of graduates in employment 6 months upon graduation*

According to Communications and Information Minister Yaacob Ibrahim, more than 42,000 workers would be needed in the Singapore ICT sector from 2017-2021. In spite of a slowing economy, IT-related jobs are in hot demand. Informatics Academy’s focus on IT skills will equip you with the much needed skills to stay relevant in the industry as testified by our graduates, some of whom have gone on to work in large tech firms like Amazon and IBM.

4. Meet friends from different cultures and nationalities

Our courses attract students from all over the world, including China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Philippines, Hong Kong and many more. Here at Informatics, we don’t just believe in creating skillful graduates, we want to deliver global citizens who can work in any culture around the world. Being able to interact with and have friends beyond Singapore can help you develop intercultural skills and adaptability that will go beyond just having a degree or diploma.

5. Sharpen leadership skills with student council and interest groups

How can you distinguish yourselves from the growing number of IT graduates in Singapore? Well, why not join our student council to develop leadership skills and create a more holistic resume? Apart from student activities, Informatics Academy also organizes regular events to enable you to reach your fullest potential. Some of our events include panel discussions with industry leaders, a visit to Microsoft, and career workshops in partnership with Junior Achievement Singapore!

6. Attain an internationally-recognised qualification awarded by Oxford Brookes University

Our Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science, Network Computing, and Computer Games and Animation** awarded by Oxford Brookes University, is ranked among the top 50 young universities in the world by QS World University Rankings 2018. What’s better is the fact that our direct honours programmes can be completed within 12 months for relevant degree holders. So get recognized internationally while paying course fees that are as affordable as SGD 14,500!

7. Take charge of your future with work-ready qualifications and work-ready skills

Informatics continues to refine our courses to ensure they produce graduates who are work-ready for the new knowledge-based economy. In fact, we recently launched our Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Network and Computer Technology which consist of a 6-month internship component. We recognize the importance of adding a practical dimension to your studies, and we are here to continue to support graduates who aim to be as work-ready as possible.

8. Get more out of your education with inter-disciplinary studies modules

Many jobs nowadays require you to possess a wide range of skills beyond a single scope. An IT software engineer may require a sound knowledge of business to contribute effectively to his or her organization. Or maybe you’re just a student who can’t stop learning. Whatever the case, Informatics has responded to such trends by allowing all our existing students to take up additional modules outside of your intended programme for free! Students who achieve above 75% attendance for these electives will receive a certificate of attendance.

9. Holistic student support services enable students to integrate better into a new environment

With student services located just a room or two away from your classroom, you can be assured that you’ll be supported throughout your entire study journey. In fact, our friendly student services team are happy to help you with student pass application and have in place an orientation program for international students. We’re proud to say that their efforts have resulted in them achieving a high satisfaction rating of 3.71 out of 4 in our 2017 structured feedback exercise. Kudos to our team for their spirit of excellence!

10. Be part of a Global Alumni Network comprising more than 58,000 graduates

As a student, you will be able to connect and network with more than 58,000 graduates across various industries all over the world, including from important hubs such as China, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, India, Mauritius and the UAE. Not only is the international exchange of information so important for cross-cultural skills today, the ability to share in a community that has become globally recognized enables Informatics to stand out as a truly established institution of higher private learning.
