You Want to Study Here in Singapore? Know some of This!

I got this from a Education Site, Very important to know
Get all the information you can about the schools.
Private schools that have a certification called CaseTrust For Education are qualified to recruit international students.
These have the foundation for good quality student welfare and protection practices and standards.
Indian students, along with those from China, Myanmar and Bangladesh, need to put down a $5,000 security deposit.
Some foreign students are allowed to work in Singapore for 16 hours a week during term time.

2. Accommodation:
If you are not staying at a student hostel at your campus, check with your school's International Student Office, notice boards and local newspapers for housing options and costs.
If you are using a housing agent, get recommendations from friends or relatives.
3. Budget, budget:
While it may be cheaper to study in Singapore compared to the UK and the US, cost of living here is higher than India.
Students should be prepared to spend between $1,500 to $2,000 a month on living expenses.
4.Tap your network:
Check with friends and acquaintances who are already studying in Singapore. They can give you tips about interest-free loans that universities offer, cheap accommodation or even a cheap lunch.
5. Talk to the locals:
It is always good to make friends with the locals and learn the culture. Have a sense of humour and be adaptable. You will enjoy your stay here more.
