About Singapore

Singapore is one of the fastest growing countries in Southeast Asia. Singapore is famous for its high standard of living and social security, as well as significant progress in the development of areas such as health, science, medicine, business and education.
Unlike other Asian states, Singapore has acquired the features of a Western mentality, such as social tolerance, interest in each person’s personality, desire for education, development of science and business.

Education in Singapore

Singapore is one of the most promising business centers in the world. This city is called “the city of the future”. The Singapore government believes that education is the future of any country, and in accordance with this principle, it strongly supports the education system at all levels of education.

The state pays special attention to the quality of education in Singapore and controls not only state, but also private educational institutions. As a result, Singapore universities occupy very high positions in world rankings.

There are 4 state universities in the country - National University of Singapore, Nanyang University of Technology, Singapore University of Management and Singapore University of Technology and Design. Their activities are financed and regulated by the state. In addition, private and foreign universities in Singapore are represented by a large number of educational institutions, many of which actively cooperate with universities in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Thus, in Singapore, you can get an education in the curriculum of the world's leading universities.

Graduates from Singapore universities are very much in demand by employers around the world. They receive a variety of employment opportunities and continuing education in Singapore itself, other countries in Asia, America and Europe.

Singapore Education System

The secondary education system in Singapore is different from the system adopted in Russia and the CIS countries. Students who wish to enter the University of Singapore are required to undergo preliminary training in the country. A student can study for 1-2 years at a local high school, undergo a one-year preparatory program or study at a college or polytechnic in a chosen specialty.

After completing the preparatory studies in Singapore, the student can choose a suitable undergraduate program and apply for it. In most cases, you will need to pass additional exams, pass an interview or perform testing.

After graduating from undergraduate students can apply for a master's degree. Depending on the specialty, it may also be necessary to pass additional exams, pass an interview or perform testing.
