Republic Polytechnic (RP) is a polytechnic located in Woodlands. As an industry-oriented alternative to a broader based junior college education, polytechnic graduates in Singapore are sought after for work or many continue to complete university degrees. Polytechnics admit majority of its students after secondary school which is after 10 years of formal education. Diplomas in a specialised area of study are awarded after completing 3 years of studies. Founded in 2002, it was the first school system in Singapore to use the problem-based learning (PBL) pedagogy for all its diploma programmes.


Republic Polytechnic's project team began operating in the premises of Data Storage Institute, National University of Singapore in January 2002. On 1 July 2002, it moved into Tanglin Campus which was previously occupied by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. The polytechnic opened its doors to the first intake of students in 2003 before moving to the current Woodlands campus in 2007.
