Singapore, a city of vast gardens and glittering skylines, is not about glitz and glamour alone. With a population of approximately five million people, top-notch public health, and steady economic growth, Singapore has always been at the forefront, when it comes to providing its citizens with great employment opportunities. No wonder, it features amongst the top education hubs for international students, with close to 70,000 of them having made this country their home.
Further, to sustain growth and its reputation as a quality education hub, Singapore has attracted several leading international institutes, whether through research collaboration, joint degree or exchange programs. The student life in Singapore is lively and the political environment stable, making it a win-win for international students.
Its strategic location is yet another advantage. Singapore is only within a six-hour radius from any southeast Asian country. It is the second-most globally connected country, and its Changi airport has been ranked the world’s best airport, year on year. Statistics suggest that the airport serves more than 100 airlines flying to about 100 countries and territories globally. Moreover, more than 62 million passengers pass through the airport every year.
