Singapore International Schools / Universities

In a country lacking in natural resources, human talent becomes the most valuable resource. As a result, significant emphasis is placed on education in Singapore. Education is inexpensive, but even at that, financial assistance through scholarships and bursaries is provided for needy students from primary to tertiary levels.

Starting at the age of 5, a typical student goes through 2 years of kindergarten, 6 years of primary school, 4 or 5 years of secondary school, 2 years of Junior College leading to the GCE A Levels, and 3 or 4 years of university education.

Singapore Government Schools

Children of expatriates residing in Singapore on employment passes or skilled work permits can apply for admission to government or aided schools.

If the student is accepted, the Foreign Students Unit will send a letter requesting a contribution to the Education Fund. Parents of nationalities other than Malaysian must contribute $5,000.
