Singapore is a modern, vibrant nation with an excellent educational system, providing numerous opportunities for internationals who wish to study abroad. Education is a priority in Singapore and the nation is recognised as a 'global schoolhouse'. Today Singapore is one of the leaders in higher education both in Asia and Worldwide.
On average, you can expect to pay around US$10,000 per year for tuition fees, although it depends on the course and institution. Arts courses tend to be less expensive than Science courses.
International students who wish to study abroad in Singapore will need a visa. However, the application process is linked to your university application. All students accepted to study at a university in Singapore receive their visa with their letter of approval.
There is another document needed for studying in Singapore: a Student Pass. You need to apply for it no earlier than two months before your course begins, yet no later than one month before your course commences. To obtain your Student Pass, you have to sign up with the special Student's Pass Online Application & Registration System (SOLAR).
