About the universities, colleges and institutes in Singapore

All state universities offer programs of degree of the bachelor; and all, except SIT, — postgraduate programmes awarding the degrees of master and PhD.

Attractive to many students is the program developed by the state universities of Singapore, jointly with famous foreign universities — Stanford, MIT, German Institute of Science and Technology, especially when the graduates receive diplomas from two prestigious universities. Widely known examples of such cooperation — Duke-NUS Medical School (Medical school of NUS and Duke University) and Yale-NUS College (College of Humanities of Yale and NUS)

Some Singapore universities, for example, SUSS, has grown to a University from a Polytechnic, and in addition to research programs, which are more suitable to future scientists, has maintained strong vocational programs.

Private universities Singapore

Private universities are treated as local educational institutions and campuses of foreign universities — for example, Rutgers Business School Asia Pacific or INSEAD Asia Campus. Despite the fairly big names, the attitude to private universities with the local people is ambiguous — behind the scenes think of the universities “last chance” where are those who failed to enroll in the more prestigious public universities.

Perhaps this is due to a certain prejudice of employers, many of whom were older people, remaining in more traditional views, even where, indeed, many world-famous foreign universities, campuses which operate in Singapore. In any case, graduates of private universities take to work in Singapore companies are slightly less willing. According to official studies graduates Graduate Employment Survey - 2017 held by the Committee of private education of Singapore, work successfully settled, 84.3% of graduates of private universities 2015-16 and 89.6% of the graduates of state universities.

Colleges and polytechnics — a preparatory stage

In Russia and the CIS countries, secondary education lasts 11 years, and domestic high school diploma will not be sufficient for admission to the University of Singapore, as it is not enough and graduates in the Singapore schools. Most of them receive a document of completion O-level, whereas for higher education requires higher A-Level.

For local residents who want to continue their education in the University there are several ways: two-year study at a Junior College or three years in Polytechnic or College of art.

Students who have graduated from colleges and polytechnics, receive a diploma without degree and can either start a professional activity or to enter the bachelor programs of universities. Programmes of polytechnics is focused on industry and application areas. Here, studying such subjects as, for example, mechanical engineering, biotechnology, nursing, optometry, accounting, tourism management, mass communication.

Diploma Polytechnic allows to read out the modules studied, to shorten the time of the study and, thus, to lower tuition fees — and not only in Singapore but also in many universities in Australia, Britain and New Zealand.

By analogy with local residents, preparation for admission to the bachelor of Singapore for the Russians and students from the CIS countries can become a transfer from the University at home after 1-2. 5 years of training or study in diploma education institutions — polytechnics, most of which accept foreigners.
