Why study in Singapore ?
Singapore is outpacing the rest in establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with thanks to determined government initiatives focused on the importance of educational.
Singapore was ranked as one of QS’s top three “Best Student Cities” in 2013. Because of Singapore’s renown superiority in the field of education, employers increasingly seek out its grads — both in Asia and across the globe.
The city is alive with people and activities throughout the day and well into evening. An extraordinary breadth and depth of local cuisine, unparalleled shopping and even a world-celebrated zoo, mean that no one is ever bored in Singapore.
English is the medium of education in Singapore but one of the unique competitive advantages of the nation’s education system is its bilingual policy. Singapore’s government and educational institutes offers various scholarships for international students. Various exchange programmes are also conducted by universities of Singapore and other countries.
