    Sorry but I've been abroad.
    Thanks for the welcome!
    I'll be going to SHATEC's open house tomorrow to find out more about their diploma course. I'll give an update when I get home in case any aspiring cooks in Singapore (or elsewhere) would like to know about the diploma course.

    Well I've spoken to two of the major culinary institutes offering diploma programmes in Singapore. They're both 1.5 year courses.

    Shatec
    6 months study at the institute
    Followed by 6 months apprenticeship at a restaurant. You would get your certificate at the end of this phase
    Finally, 6 months study at the institute for your diploma
    Apprenticeship allowance seems to be lower than that of Sunrice
    Total fees about S$3.5k for Singaporean citizens and PRs, after subsidies.

    At Sunrice
    3 months study at the institute
    The rest of the course is spent on this cycle: 1 week at the institute, 2 weeks of apprenticeship at a restaurant
    Newer facilities
    Total Apprenticeship allowance seems to be around $1.4k per month for Singaporean citizens and PRs
    Total fees about S7.9k for Singaporean citizens and PRs, after subsidies.

    I'm leaning towards At Sunrice. I still have a couple months more to decide as I'm only leaving my job next year.
