Education Industry

The education industry for international students has taken off in the last 10 years with many reputable and big name universities setting up branches in Singapore. Courses available include undergraduate and post graduate courses, diploma and professional courses and secondary schools.

The flourishment of the industry in a short span of time has created many opportunities for education and related services to serve an ever increasing population of international students coming from the region as well as Europe, Africa and the USA.

With such a huge gathering of people, teaching professionals and service providers and students, it is expected that there will be problems and difficulties associated with the industry. Some problems are due to unfamiliarities with the industry, people and the rules and regulations of the country. Some are due to negligence, fraudulent practices and unscrupulous service providers.

It is the objective of this blog to provide an avenue for people to share their experiences so that others will not fall into the same mistakes. Also, students and parents who are seeking more information on education in Singapore can seek help and advices from people who are in the know.

I hope everyone can contribute something to the betterment of the industry and the students.

Singapore has been successful in attracting a wide range of quality institutions such as Insead, the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, Duke University, S P Jain School of Management, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Cornell University, Global Indian International School, Delhi Public School and Chinese International School. These institutions are doing well here. Some are even expanding their campuses due to strong demand. EDB also continues to engage a range of reputable foreign institutions. We will press on with our Global Schoolhouse initiative.
