Don't be fooled by this city-state's size because where it may be small in terms of geography, it makes up for in knowledge generation.
Singapore is among the biggest players in global education right now, being home to institutions that have consistently placed in worldwide university rankings.
But aside from the prestige linked with the place, here are some benefits one may get from studying in Singapore:
1. International competitiveness
With its 'Global Schoolhouse' initiative, Singapore has been positioning itself as an international destination for quality education.
It is also friendly to foreign students as it was named the 15th best city for students in the 2018 QS World University Rankings.
According to the Singapore Ministry of Education, the city-state is moving "towards an education system that is more flexible and diverse" to "provide students with greater choice" on how they will learn. It is also giving students a broad-based education to ensure holistic development in and out the classroom.
2. Peace of mind
Safety matters -- especially so for foreign students.
This is something students can be assured of when in Singapore. This year, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked the island-state as the second safest city to live in. This is based on measurements on digital security, health security, infrastructure safety, and personal safety.
3. Libraries and museums
Having access to educational resources and materials outside of the classroom is important for a richer learning experience.
Students may visit several public libraries for this. Aside from books, some of these libraries also loan audio-visual materials as well as e-books.
Singapore is also home to some world-class museums, such as the National Museum of Singapore, which features permanent exhibitions of the island-state's history and culture, and the ArtScience Museum, a lotus-shaped building which houses permanent exhibits indicative of the accomplishments of arts and sciences through the ages.
