Australia or Singapore?

I am confused about which country to choose: i.e. between Australia and Singapore. And is it feasible to study in Australia considering present economic situation. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s in Telecomm Engineering. And would like to pursue masters in the same field in either of the two locations. I have shortlisted two universities, University of Melbourne and National university of Singapore. Which one should I choose? Thanking you

Hi, NUS is a tough University to get admissions and requires very stringent academic requirements like 8.0 or 80% to stand a chance. University of Melbourne is a very good University and ranks very highly in the world ranking. If you can get in to NUS, then it will be best bet considering that there are only 3 Universities in Singapore and job opporunities for students from NUS is almost 100% and PR chances are very high. 

But with NUS admissions so tough, put applications to both NUS and Univ of Melbourne and take a decision later when you get the admits from the Universities. Australian Economy is still doing well and you do not have to be apprehensive about getting jobs or PR later.
