Good news for DBIT students! University College London, one of the world's top universities, has relaxed admission requirements to one of their important business courses for DBIT SP Students.

UCL is now accepting DBIT students admission to the second year of the BSc Information Management for Business course. Not only that, DBIT students also get consideration to the third year of the four year MSc Information Management for Business course.

Below is the complete text from UCL's management:

"Students from Diploma in Business Information Technology (DBIT) course from Singapore Polytechnic will be admitted to the BSc (Information Management for Business) from University College London (UCL) second year, taking Foundations of Management (MSIN1001) as their second year elective on a case by case basis. That students from DBIT course will be considered for admission to the third year of the four year MSc (Information Management for Business) programme on a case by case basis."
