Covid-19 Advisory

Safe Re-Opening

Singapore will move into the phase of safe re-opening on 2 June. Alongside other schools and Institutes of Higher Learning, PSB Academy will progressively bring students back on campus in a calibrated and safe manner.


We have been facilitating campus access for graduating cohorts back into our STEM Campus laboratories to work on their final year projects since 20 May. We are also in the process of getting the STEM Campus ready to resume laboratory-based classes progressively from 2 June. All other lessons, assessments and activities will continue to be delivered online during this phase. For everyone’s health and safety, PSB Academy will be undertaking thorough cleaning of the campus before allowing staff and students back.


Our communication channels remain open to you during this period. Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to meeting you again when it is safe to do so.


  • Online Learning & Assessments

    Students will not have to worry about the crowds (or the spread of virus) in their commute to lessons. They will instead be able to benefit from the same quality of education delivered through our online learning management system, in the comfort and safety of their own home.


    Learning Resources Centre



    All lessons will be conducted via live streaming and also available to you as recorded contents. Live streaming sessions are interactive, and you will be able to ask questions or engage in discussions during these sessions. Beyond live streaming sessions, you may email your lecturers if you have any questions or clarifications on your classes.


    Exams & Assessments

    All on-campus exams will be cancelled during this period. Exams and assessments (e.g. tests, quizzes) will be conducted online remotely, with instructions informed to you by your School.

    For the March/Apr Diploma Exams that concluded on Friday, 3 April, results will be released on Friday, 24 April on the Student Portal. Result release for University exams are not affected, unless otherwise informed by the School.

  • Multiple Communication Channels

    Students will have the flexibility of communicating with their lecturers and programme executives. Between face-to-face consultations, email, live chat and phone conversations, you will have more opportunities to get feedback or have a great Q&A session.

  • Whistleblowing

    If you have information on students not complying with the Stay-Home Notice requirements, please reach out to us at:


We have set up a task force that is closely monitoring the developments in Singapore and worldwide, and to maintain regular communications with all stakeholders. We will continue to take appropriate steps to keep our students safe and on track for graduation.

SHN/LOA/QO Support

Students serving the Stay-Home Notice (SHN) / Leave of Absence (LOA) / Quarantine Order (QO) will be supported throughout this period:



More About SHN, LOA and QO 

  • Stay-Home Notice (SHN)

    Singapore has introduced SHN for Singapore residents and long-term pass (including Student's Pass) holders returning to Singapore from all countries within the last 14 days.

    Students under the SHN have to remain in their place of residence at all times during the 14-day period. Those placed on the SHN will be reminded to monitor their health closely and minimise contact with others.

    During the SHN period, students can seek assistance from PSB Academy to support them in areas such as food and daily necessities.

    Surveillance and enforcement measures will be implemented to ensure compliance with the SHN, so that the wellbeing of the community is not put at risk. Those who flout the SHN may face penalties and can be prosecuted under the Infectious Diseases Act.

  • Leave of Absence (LOA)

    To protect the well-being of our student community, we may place students under leave of absence (LOA) if they have had close contact with someone on SHN. Students who return from any country between 14 and 20 March 2020 will also be placed on LOA.

    Students under the LOA should remain in their place of residence as much as possible and minimise contact with others. They should minimise visitors to their place of residence, and avoid going to crowded places or attending social gatherings.

  • Quarantine Order (QO)

    The quarantine order is served to people who have come into close contact with individuals who have been infected. A quarantined at home cannot physically interact with others living in the same premises or leave home. Spot checks - both by phone and in person - will be carried out to ensure that they abide by the restrictions.

    Those who do not have such facilities at home may opt for government quarantine facilities. Quarantined people who live alone and need to get groceries, for example, may be granted assistance from the authorities.

    Those who flout the quarantine for the first time may be fined up to $10,000, jailed up to six months, or both. The penalty is higher for subsequent breaches.

International Student FAQ

  • International Students

    Is it safe to travel to Singapore?

    Singapore raised our national risk assessment alert (Dorscon) to Orange, as Covid-19 has been determined to be severe and easily transmissible. However, there is no widespread transmission in Singapore and the virus is being contained. Our defences have been strengthened to enhance public safety e.g. temperature screening, daily health checks.

    The international community can be confident in Singapore's commitment to share information openly and swiftly, to protect public health and maintain safety and stability. The World Health Organization has highlighted the strength of Singapore's response, and a Harvard study has lauded our effectiveness in detecting and isolating cases.


    Am I allowed to enter into Singapore if I have a valid Student's Pass or In-Principle Approval (IPA) Letter?

    From 30 March 2020, Student’s Pass (STP) and In-Principle Approval (IPA) holders planning to enter Singapore must obtain the Ministry of Education's permission before commencing their journey to Singapore. Please submit your application to PSB Academy and wait for an approval letter of entry before you arrange your travel to Singapore. This approval letter of entry must be shown to airline staff upon check-in at the departure airport and to the immigration officer upon arrival in Singapore.

    If you are travelling to Singapore from anywhere overseas, you will be issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) by the authorities and need to inform your School immediately upon arrival in Singapore. Students who have travelled within the last 14 days to Hubei province of Mainland China will be issued a 14-day Quarantine Order (QO).


    If I'm an international student, do I need to attend self-study sessions on-campus?

    All international students are not required to attend self-study sessions on-campus until the end of June or earlier. We will inform you when this ICA requirement has been restored.

From the Dean

25 May 2020


Dear students,


With the end of the Circuit Breaker period on 1 June 2020, Singapore will move into the Phase 1 of Safe Re-opening.  PSB Academy, alongside other schools and Institutes of Higher Learning, will progressively bring students back on campus in a calibrated and safe manner.


We have been facilitating campus access for graduating cohorts back into our STEM Campus laboratories to work on their final year projects since 20 May 2020. We are also in the process of getting the STEM Campus ready to resume laboratory-based classes progressively from 2 June 2020. All other lessons, assessments and activities will continue to be delivered online during this Phase 1. For everyone’s health and safety, PSB Academy will be undertaking thorough cleaning of the campus before allowing staff and students back.


Your School will contact you with further information if you are scheduled to return to campus for laboratory classes. Safe management measures including the implementation of SafeEntry, biometric attendance-taking and temperature checks will be carried out on entry to and exit from campus. Masks have to be worn at all times on-campus. Students who are unwell, on home quarantine / Stay Home Notice, or have flu-like symptoms such as fever and cough, will be required to stay away from campus.


Our communication channels remain open to you, including video consultations, email, live chat and phone conversations. Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to meeting you again when it is safe to do so.

Dear students,


The COVID-19 pandemic has been going on for some time now, and the consensus from nations around the world is that the situation will stretch on for much longer. As we speak, these governments are implementing measures to ensure the safety and interests of their respective citizens are protected, and Singapore is no different.


  • Lessons in Unity

    Since the outbreak, we have witnessed the exemplary hard work shared by everyone in this tiny nation. Many have stepped up beyond our core duties to help one another and support the Government’s decisions all with the safety of our people in mind. While Singapore has received commendation for our effectiveness in containing the spread of the virus, these compliments may count for nothing, if Singapore and the world’s nations do not persevere in curbing the situation. We must continue to work closely together to fight against an invisible enemy.

    In contributing to training and developing quality graduates to serve the workforce since 1964, PSB Academy’s ties are deeply woven into the nation’s social fabric, along with the rest of the Education sector. I wish to reiterate that the entire academy is behind our Government’s efforts in these challenging times.

    Since the onset of the outbreak, we have set up a task force that works closely with the authorities such as the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Manpower and Ministry of Education. This has allowed us to anticipate and react swiftly to implement measures and policies in the Academy. From temperature screenings, strict campus entry polices, to close monitoring of our stakeholders’ travel history, these measures are set in place with the safety of our students and colleagues as our utmost priority.

  • Lessons in Innovation, So Learning Doesn’t Stop

    Our communication channels are constantly updated to keep everyone abreast of the evolving situation. You may visit or follow our social media pages on Facebook, WeChat, and Instagram.

    We are keenly aware of how our students’ academic journeys are affected by this situation. As such, I am pleased that our academics have been able to work quickly in rolling out online learning on Learning Management Systems like BlackBoard. We will transit to full digital mode with effect from 1 April 2020.

    Our students can continue to access quality learning at the comfort and safety of their homes. We will also make separate arrangements on how exams to be conducted if required.  Students serving their Stay-Home Notice, Leave of Absence or Quarantine Order also continue to be supported throughout this period.

    Already, students can access a host of digital resources from their respective institutions on our website. Valuable face-time with our lecturers can continue to be scheduled as video sessions during their regular consultation hours. Student support services like counselling continue to be made available through phone and video.

  • Bracing Ourselves For The Long Haul

    As the Covid-19 situation continues to be fluid, many of our practices and policies today may evolve quickly tomorrow. In times like this, I call for all your understanding, trust and cooperation, as my colleagues and I work to keep our students’ lessons going.

    Please rest assured that your safety and academic learning experience will continue to be our top priority. While we understand our international students want to be with their families at this time, we strongly encourage all to heed the Government’s advice for everyone’s safety, which is to remain in your residences. Please continue to keep engaged with us through the online channels open to you.

    We would like to remind everyone that the situation will only improve significantly if we all do our part– in staying vigilant, diligent, practising personal hygiene and most importantly, being socially responsible for the sake of your health and the health of those around you.
