The nation might be small but the scene gets really big when it comes to education opportunities in Singapore. Recognized as a "Global Schoolhouse," this island nation is famous for its universities and student friendly climate. With its name featuring pretty regularly in global surveys on research and innovation, Singapore lays a great emphasis on maintaining the highest standards of teaching, and scientific research. It may be a small country, but scope for higher education in Singapore is significant.
For those interested in statistics, Singapore ranked 7th in INSEAD Global Innovation Index 2015 and 2nd in the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report for 2015-2016. The 2016 Top Cities for Students rankings by QS which considers factors such as universities, cost of living, standard of living, job opportunities & student mix places Singapore in the 6th position.
No wonder that it has emerged as a popular destination for higher education among students across the world!
Within this context of global competitiveness and innovation, universities in Singapore are also gaining growing recognition, as Asian nations more generally strengthen their position in the global education market. Singapore’s two leading universities are now both ranked within the world’s top 15, and the city itself is ranked 15th in the QS Best Student Cities 2018, reflecting its combination of educational excellence, high quality of life, and diverse student community.
Singapore is a popular study abroad destination for Indian students as well. A 2012 report by the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education (OBHE) reveals that out of the 70,000 international students in Singapore, around 3000 are Indian. And this number of Indian students going to Singapore annually is increasing by 20% every year.
Singapore is a cosmopolitan city and a multi-cultural nation. It's also one of the safest places to live in and one of the most student friendly countries. Students can experience a vibrant lifestyle, with modern facilities such as healthcare, leisure and entertainment, transportation, and civic amenities.
Another great thing about being a student in Singapore is you can travel to other Asian countries (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam) on a frugal budget. There are also regular flights from India to Singapore, which ensures a hassle-free experience for students
