Academic Disciplines

Subject Combinations

VJC offers a wide range of subject combinations. All combinations include General Paper, Project Work and Mother Tongue at H1 level. 

Students who offer subjects in Science are expected to have assumed knowledge (for example, having read a similar subject in secondary school). Subjects offered in the Arts course do not require any assumed knowledge. Students in VJC can offer a Foreign Language as a H2 subject in any of the subject combinations.

To experience a broad-based education, all students in a junior college must offer at least one contrasting subject which is outside their main area of specialisation in the Arts or Science stream.

Higher 3 (H3) Subjects

Besides these subject combinations, students with the ability and passion to deepen their learning can apply to offer a H3 subjects in the Humanities and the Science. 

There is a range of H3 offerings that are either taught by VJC teachers in college or by university lecturers at the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU). VJC also offers a special H3 programme – H3 NAV Science Research – in collaboration with the Agency of Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and NUS.
