Proximity To India
Singapore is well connected internally and internationally, most importantly close to India as compared to other preferred destinations for studying abroad. It is a hardly 4-5 hours flight from India making room for students to visit during breaks.
Affordable And Quality Education
As compared to the education cost in many other popular destinations, Singapore provides high quality education at a very reasonable cost. Singapore further promises comprehensive options to students in terms of courses based on their qualification.
Singapore is a premier knowledge hub and is intellectually enriching. It has a class of its own and everyone knows about it. Thus, something that students and parents may not be aware of is that you can check if the Institution has the certifications of ‘Singapore Quality Class (SQC)’ for Private Education Organizations (PEO) and ‘Case Trust’ for Education.
In simple terms, the above are quality marks and serve as industry standards in Singapore. The government of Singapore is very responsible and has proper mechanisms in place. This is what we believe and generally recommend only those (private) Institutions who have these quality marks. More about SQC-PEO and Case Trust can be read (in brief) at the end of this page.
Combination Of East And West (Degree)
You can obtain a recognized foreign University degree (from US, UK, Singapore& more) in Singapore at both – undergraduate and postgraduate level. Interestingly, these degrees in most cases will be cheaper as compared to studying the same in the respective Countries.
