Why Study in Singapore?
Singapore is fast becoming a popular destination for international students to pursue their studies. In the present-day world economy, where innovation reigns supreme, knowledge is not pursued in isolation. It is the result of hard work carried out by the world community of scholars and intellectuals at the forefront of ideas. Singapore lays emphasis on all these aspects and adopts a highly effective and competitive education system, especially in the fields of information technology and management, offering internationally recognized degrees at affordable costs.
Well-known for its vibrancy and various tourist attractions, Singapore has world-class universities, with the Government investing heavily on education. Every year, large numbers of overseas students flock to Singapore to pursue their studies in colleges and universities here, both public and private. For higher education, Singapore is undoubtedly the best choice. Here, we have both good facilities and the right environment to enable our universities and colleges to be ranked among the best in the world.
The strength of our education system lies in the bilingual policy (English plus Malay/Chinese/Tamil) adopted by our Government as well as the broad-based curricula introduced in our institutions of higher learning. These curricula stress on innovation and entrepreneurship among other things. After acquiring the relevant skills and abilities here, students will be able to survive in any competitive environment in the world and do well in their future life.
The institutions of higher learning in Singapore aim to prepare students not only for today, but also for the unknown tomorrow. Education has always been the key to social development in Singapore, especially after the country became independent in 1965.
