  • As Ishita shared the educational structure, I am sure you all know the level of specialization invovled in Singapore. Every student can decide between ITE, Polytechnic or Junior College and then accordingly get into a related University / college for their professional education. Here you can see a small collage of the colleges that are present in Singapore. These are NUS, NTU, Tamasek, SMU, MDIS,SPJCM,INSEAD…Etc. Few of these colleges are world known and are in the league of Top 100 universities / colleges around the world. There are about 4 colleges which fall in the creamy league of colleges across the world. If you notice now, there are only 3 universities in Singapore which are catering to the majority share of students and are in the ivy league. These 3 universities are NUS, NTU,SMU. The remaining professional education sector has been limited to private colleges and universities which are SIM, Raffles and many others which have an association with a college in Singapore or has set up their own international campus in Singapore. These colleges come from all geographies from Australia, US, UK, Etc…Here you will find a list of 100+ colleges which will give a fair idea of the colleges in Singapore. With this now, Prateet will give a brief overview of the courses that are being offered in this professional educational hub…
