Of late, people keep raving about Singapore as the ideal ‘study abroad’ destination for Indian students. So what is so special about Singapore? Let’s first assimilate information about the country itself – SINGAPORE...
I remember visiting Singapore a couple of years ago and being astounded at the various multi-cultural facets displayed by that country. It is a cosmopolitan hub of flavour and modernity run by a framework of rules, which keeps the system intact. With regard to education, innovation, job markets, sports and the media, Singapore has the best facilities and offers a good standard of living accompanied with positive and progressive opportunities, inclusive of jobs. You even have a place called ‘Little India’ in Singapore, which has imbibed many an element from India!
Why Choose Singapore as Your Education Destination?
The reasons are myriad!!!
Singapore has emerged as an international education hub offering a rich spectrum of courses in diverse fields, ranging from art, management/ business to nanotechnology.
Check out some of the acclaimed educational institutes found in Singapore, accompanied by corresponding testimonials/ reviews from students.
The cost of education and living in Singapore is at least 30% less than that of the UK or US. Students can move about in a safe and secure environment. Usually, Indian students find Singapore to be a hospitable nation, which incorporates many societal facets of India, from food and culture to religion, thus, making it a safe destination for one to live, study and work.
Apart from the ‘regular, run-of-the-mill, in-demand’ M-B-A, degree and diploma courses in engineering, programmes provided by Trade Schools and Polytechnic Institutes are Singapore’s popular offerings. Polytechnics offer a wide range of courses in fields such as engineering, business studies, accountancy, tourism and hospitality management, mass communication, digital media and biotechnology.
Graduates from Singapore’s Universities are highly sought after by their respective industries. The commonly asked question is if a degree/ qualification acquired from Singapore is globally recognized. Well, it is. Universities most often have tie-ups with global giants so that their students are exposed to the economic scenario and work environment via traineeships, internships, work skill absorption and campus recruitment.
