The VB programmes are delivered in English and specially designed to nurture all-round professional knowledge and personal skills for future success in the workplace.  The broad-based curriculum covers core subjects in language and numeric studies, the chosen vocational field and whole person development modules, nurturing flexible, skilled and work-ready young professionals.

Developing your Interest as a Profession

 

Taking reference from international standards, the VB programmes adopt the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma studies in the fields of Design or Engineering. Based on individual interest, students will be able to choose from one of the two specialist programmes and acquire knowledge and skills through practical project-based learning.
