We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Despite its small size, the city-state of Singapore is rapidly becoming one of Asia's most prominant higher education and research hubs. A Masters in Singapore means studying at innovative modern universities, against a vibrant cultural backdrop, in a stunning study abroad setting.
With two universities in the world top 100 and several more performing well in regional rankings, Singapore is rapidly becoming a significant part of the global higher education landscape.
More importantly, its universities are attracting more and more international postgraduates, drawn by the opportunity to study at high-tech research institutions and the unique training opportunities offered by the history, geography and economic activity of this vibrant South-Asian region.
As a Masters student in Singapore you'll also have the opportunity of easy travel to neighbouring Malaysia or slightly further afield to South Korea or Japan - all of which offer their own high quality research and training opportunities (as well as plenty more to see and do during your studies).
Singapore is a top South-Asian study abroad destination, with nearly 50,000 international students.
Singaporean Masters degrees follow an international format, with most programmes taking one or two years to complete, full time. Taught courses are usually shorter, with more time required for research-focussed qualifications.
Tuition fees for Masters degrees in Singapore vary by institution and program, but are usually between SGD $20,000 and SGD $54,000 per year (roughly $15,100-$40,760).
The majority of Masters programmes in Singapore are delivered in English, making them particularly accessible to international postgraduate applicants.
International students in Singapore must hold a valid 'Student Pass'. This is the equivalent of a visa and can be obtained with the support of a university, once you have been accepted onto a course.
