Top reasons to study or live in Singapore

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

Singapore has been a recognised hub for excellence in education for many years and is regularly listed in the top handful of countries when institutions, such as education firm Pearson, rank global education systems. With the growing number of international schools, it is evident that Singapore is moving towards a knowledge-based economy, and education will be the key in shaping the future.

Singapore is fast becoming a multi-cultural society, moving beyond the various ethnic groups of Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasians to a truly progressive, cosmopolitan community, with citizens from various nationalities over the world. Currently, there are about 90,000 professional expatriates living and working in Singapore. They add to the unique culture and perspective, adding to the colour and vibrancy of Singapore. This multi-cultural cosmopolitan society provides an all-round exposure to the child.

Singapore's high standard of living, world-class infrastructure and political stability make it an attractive place to live and study. It boasts a good quality of life that is on par with the most pulsating cities in Europe and the United States of America. Its arts and entertainment scene is a rich palate of colours and flavours. The island nation's climate is also conducive to outdoor activities all year round, with a vast variety to choose from.

Strategically located at the crossroads of Asia, trips out of Singapore to the region are convenient and easily accessible. Nearby islands are the weekend playground for many in Singapore, where the sun, sea and fun beckon.

Finally, Singapore is often applauded for its political stability and extremely low crime rates – both highly desirable traits for Asia’s elites.
