Well, if you grad from NYP, you will have a better chance of getting into SIT-Digipen. With a one-year dip, I doubt SIT will take you in. If you think about it, a diploma might not be good enough to break into the game design industry, a degree would be much better. Both NYP and FZD grads are nothing compared to Digipen grads.

Regardless, there is no 'industry' to speak of here in singapore. The last good game design company lucasarts closed up their base in singapore. You would be hard pressed to find a job in game design here. But an NYP grad would still have the upper hand I believe, just for the fact that he can get into SIT-Digipen and further his skills and qualifications.

But from what I heard Digipen has a drop-out rate of 70% and a fail rate of 25%, It's really scary to think as such. As from interview from the drop-outs, they say it was too 'mechanical' and passion eventually dies away from that.

I'm really in a dilenma now because with my academic results, I can pretty much go in almost any course or JC I can but however I have a strong passion for making games and have DPA-ed in the course. And I heard Konami has recently set-up a company here no?

So? By the time you graduate, there's a good chance that they might move out of singapore just like lucasarts did.

I would definitely recommend you to withdraw. Just do a general design diploma or choose an entirely different field. It is far too early to specialise in game design, and it is very difficult to do a career switch later on in life with a game design diploma as there are very few transferable skills. It is much, much easier for grads from other diplomas to switch into game design than the other way around (game design grads switching to other fields).
