Course duration is the time period till which a specific course is taught. When you apply to study at a university abroad, you should always check for the duration of the course that you are interested in. Course duration will speak how much money you will be spending for your studies and if it's worth investing. 

Undergraduate programmes in Singapore generally take three to four years to complete. There are a few private universities that fast track degree programmes and let students complete their degree programmes in two years but those kind of degrees don’t have the same weightage as three- or four-year degree programmes.

Typically masters programmes in Singapore last for around one and a half to two years. Many Singapore universities offer programmes affiliated to UK or Australian Universities, such as James Cook University or Curtin University campuses in Singapore. 

Also, it has been noticed that undergraduate students, who fall under a heavy influence of their parents, mostly tend to pick universities like NTU or NUS. Whereas, postgraduate students seem to be free about their university choices for their masters and tend to pick institutions like MDIS and James Cook University. For masters in engineering, students seem to show interest in NTU, as it is considered to have high academic standing in the field of engineering and strong research areas post degree completion.
