The government also has come up with a lot of initiatives in attracting students from across the world. A report says more than 70000 international students visit Singapore for education every year and they plan to make the number double by this year.
A Safe Place
Singapore a technologically advanced multicultural country provides a safe, secure and a cosmopolitan environment to its students. A student might work for 16 hours a week while he or she is already enrolled in some courses.
Students prefer Singapore than any other places like Japan, Russia because of the use of English in the classroom studies which helps them maintain their confidence that they often lose coming to an unknown country.
Tution Grants Scheme
The students coming from abroad are offered The Tuition Grant Scheme was introduced in 1980 and non-Singaporean students are permitted who had already enrolled in full-time diploma or undergraduate courses in many institutions to apply for a tuition subsidy. This helps a student a lot in preparation of the course studies.
Institutes & Companies Choosing Singapore

MDIS ties up with BIBS, Kolkata
Many business schools in India including the IIM ‘s are making international tie-ups to give the students world class education by staying in their own country. Recently MDIS one of the oldest universities has tied-up with Indian Management Institutes like BIBS. BIBS ranked among Asia ‘s 100 Best Private Education Institute is also proud to make this collaboration possible as from now onwards the students from this business school of Kolkata will be able to visit the institute in Singapore and will be able to take part in the Management Programme.
The Programme will be based on Marketing, HR and Finance and the students will also get to learn about Management Skills including Corporate Communications, Emotional and Service Excellence and Productivity and Personal Effectiveness. This will surely help them in their placements. With BIBS placing 10% of their students internationally this year they hope to raise the percentage level in the coming years.
The tie-ups will surely help in boosting student efficiency and capabilities. But a threat to this is the rise in the cost of living in Singapore which might be a cause of concern later on. This concern however has not stopped in making Singapore a true educational Hub where students are thronging from around the world along with the tie -ups happening with different prestigious Institutes. The country has been attracting new talents as a destination for higher studies for quite some time.
