According to OECD’s latest PISA survey, Singapore came out top to claim the title of having “the World’s best education system”. The country is home to many of the world’s leading public and private universities, and students who have graduated from Singapore have consistently outperformed their global peers in both academic rankings and job market competitiveness!

However, the assurance of high quality education is just one of the many reasons why tens of thousands of students come to Singapore each year to pursue their studies.

Here are 5 other top reasons why you should study in Singapore:

  1. Attractive job market: Singapore is a very wealthy state; ranking 4th in the World in terms of GDP per capita. This is supported by its strong economy and very low unemployment rate at just 2.2%. And the good news is that the country also hires many foreigners to support its economy!

    By studying in Singapore, you will have an edge over other foreigners as you can better understand its job market, unique culture and work environment. In addition, by being physically in Singapore, you will also be able to search for jobs and attend interviews.

  2. Global network & perspective: Singapore is one of the few cosmopolitan societies in the world where people of different races, cultures and religions live harmoniously and interaction between the groups are commonly seen. By studying in Singapore, you will have plenty of opportunities to learn more about other cultures and religions, as well as build your own global network of friends!

    With an increasing number of companies seeking for employees with a global network and perspective, you can also expect to find yourself more attractive in the job market following your education in Singapore.

  3. Modern city with World-class living standards: Voted as the “best place to live, work and play”, you can be assured that your stay in Singapore will be as enjoyable and comfortable as it can get! Well-developed public transportation system, readily accessible amenities and a wide range of entertainment are just some of the many factors contributing to this reputation!

  4. Safety: Singapore is ranked the 2nd safest city in the World according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Safe Cities Index 2017. In year 2016, the city reported 135 days in total without any crimes!

    Hence, you can hang out till late into the night or travel alone around the city without worrying about your own safety

Du học sinh đến từ Việt Nam, 20 tuổi Du học Singapore

Mình chưa bao giờ đến Singapore và thậm chí cũng chưa bao giờ đi ra nước ngoài. Vì thế, quyết định đi du học mình thực sự lo lắng. Nhưng Flying Chalks đã giúp mình có thêm động lực để vượt qua rào cản đó. Ngay từ lúc bắt đầu, anh chị tại Flying Chalks đã rất nhiệt tình và tư vấn cho mình rất kỹ để mình có thể chọn được chương trình học phù hợp nhất. Qúa trình làm hồ sơ và nộp hồ sơ cho trường  cũng rất suôn sẻ. Anh chị cũng giúp mình xử lý vấn đề về tìm nơi ở và VISA luôn.

Mình đã sang Singapore học được gần nửa năm và đây thực sự là khoảng thời gian vô cùng thú vị, đáng nhớ. Flying Chalks đã hỗ trợ mình làm quen nhanh chóng với nhịp sống học tập bên này và kết bạn với những sinh viên của Singapore. Mình cũng tham gia các buổi outing đi thăm quan và khám phá những địa điểm du lịch nổi tiếng cũng như văn hóa Singapore do Flying Chalks tổ chức.

Cho đến lúc này, mình thực sự cảm thấy quyết định đi du học của mình là hoàn toàn chính xác.

Gửi ngàn lời chúc tốt đẹp nhất đến Flying Chalks – người đã luôn đồng hành cùng mình.

Student from Vietnam, 20 years old Study abroad in Singapore

I had never come to Singapore, and even traveled to other countries. Therefore, studying abroad really made me nervous. However, Flying Chalks helped me to have more courageousness to get over that obstacle. Right from beginning, they were very enthusiastic and consulted thoroughly so that I could choose the most suitable program. Preparing documents and applying to the university went absolutely smooth. They also helped me settle the accommodation and VISA application.

I have been here for almost 6 months and this is the extremely interesting and unforgettable time. Flying Chalks have helped me get familiar with the pace of life and studying in Singapore and made friends with a lot of Singaporean students. I have participated in Flying Chalks’ outings in which we discovered the culture and visited to famous attractions in Singapore.

Until now, I have been completely right when deciding to study abroad. Best regards to Flying Chalks who have been always standing by me!

항상 해외 유학을 가고 싶었지만, 저한테는 너무 어렵게만 느껴졌어요. 진짜 발품 팔아서 여러 유학원도 다녀보고 했는데, 갈 때마다 비용도 너무 복잡하고 이거저거 추가 비용 내라고 하고. 또 외국에서 혼자 살아보는 일이 멋져 보이기도 했지만 두려움이 앞서는 일이기도 하잖아요. 그러다 플라잉촉스를 알게 되어 상담을 받게 되었는데, 선생님이 너무 친절하게 지원 절차도 설명해주시고 싱가폴 유학 환경에 대해 자세히 설명해주셔서 용기를 내보았습니다.

특히, 플라잉촉스는 싱가폴에 회사가 있어서 유학 생활 내내 모르는 거나, 힘든 것이 있으면 물어보고 도움을 얻을 수 있었어요. 귀찮으실텐데 물어볼 때마다 최대한 빠르게 대답해주시고 (심지어 주말에도ㅠㅠ), 물어보지 않았는데도 맛집 정보 등 여러 유용한 팁을 많이 주셨어요. 또, 외국인과 함께하는 액티비티라는 교류 프로그램을 통해 싱가폴 현지에서 외국인 친구들과 만나고, 놀러 다녔던 게 너무너무 좋았어요. 함께 싱가폴 내 멋진 사원, 건축물, 그리고 너무 이뻤던 싱가폴 현지인들이 자주 간다는 공원까지 알 수 있어서 너무너무 좋았어요. 이제 싱가폴은 저에게 제2의 고향이 될거만 같아욤 >_<

I used to be nervous about going for international studies, because it is a complicated process and I would have to live independently in a foreign country. Flying Chalks’ consultant in Korea made me feel a lot more comfortable by being there to assist me with all elements of my application.

It was also helpful to have a local Flying Chalks team actively reaching out to me in Singapore. They were quick to support me when I had challenges with my accommodation, and shared many useful tips for living in Singapore. I was also happy to meet local students, as well as other Koreans in Singapore. Singapore has truly become my second home!

저 같은 경우는 워킹비자를 받고 싱가포르에서 일한 경험이 있어, 학생 비자 신청이 불투명한 상황인지라 많은 유학원들이 꺼려하는 케이스였습니다. 하지만 플라잉촉스는 다른 유학원과 달리 적극적으로 저에게 친절히 빠르고 많은 정보를 제공해 주었으며, 그 결과 비자를 성공적으로 받을 수 있어 현재 싱가포르에서 유학중입니다. 다른 비자 문제로 인해 싱가포르 유학을 고민하고 싶은 분들에게 플라잉촉스를 적극 추천하고 싶습니다. 다른 분들도 모두 플라잉촉스를 통해 좋은 성과가 있었으면 좋겠습니다.

Student from Korea, 22 years old Study Abroad in Singapore (James Cook University)

I am a student who was considering to study in Singapore but have previously worked in the country on a working VISA. This work experience is unfavorable for me in applying for a student VISA because of the strict immigration policies laid out by Singapore. As a result, many study abroad agencies were reluctant to assist me to study abroad in Singapore.

However, unlike the aforementioned agencies, Flying Chalks was forthcoming in providing me with swift and detailed information, eventually helping me to successfully obtain a student VISA. And I am now studying in Singapore! Hence, I would like to recommend Flying Chalks to all students who may be facing similar problems as I did.
