Further to my post earlier on Competitive Education for Optimal Success, Singapore’s education system does include part time studies as well.
While majority of the students are taking full-time studies in tertiary level (polytechnics and universities), there do have some students taking the part-time programs. Part time programs offer students more flexibility in planning their own schedule outside school as there will be only a few hours of education each day, usually in the evenings. Thus, they will be much more freer in the day compared to the full-time students.
In polytechnics, part time diploma programs are offered. In universities, part time degree programs, Part time executive MBA Singapore programs and part time phD programs are offered.
It is also noted that the duration of part time studies usually is longer than full-time studies as the curriculum are spread out thinner on more days.
