BENEFITS OF STUDYING IN SINGAPORE!
COST OF EDUCATION IN SINGAPORE
Singapore uses the Singapore Dollar (SGD) as its currency.
Your tuition fees will depend on where you choose to study, and at what level. On average, you should expect to pay between SGD 14,000 and SGD 50,000 per year. For international students, there are many scholarships available. Some of these are offered by the Singapore Ministry of Education, as well as others offered by individual institutions. Public institutions will usually charge lower tuition fees than private institutions.
International students also need to consider their living costs. On average, you should budget for around SGD 10,000 per year. You will be able to work up to 16 hours per week during term-time, and full time during the holidays. If you wish to get a job, you will first need to get approval from your institution.
SINGAPORE STUDENT VISAS
International students wishing to study in Singapore will need to obtain a student visa. When you get your letter of approval, you will also be issued a visa by your institution. Within two weeks of your acceptance, you will need to apply to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) for a Student Pass. This also needs to be no earlier than two months and no later than one month before the start to your course. This process will be done through the Student’s Pass Online Application and Registration System (SOLAR). You will be given registration details by your institution, which you will use to fill in and submit the required forms. You will then need to complete the process once you have arrived in the country. To do this, you will need to make an appointment with the ICA and take with you the disembarkation/embarkation card that you were granted on entry to Singapore.
