Global Education Hub Singapore’s education system is well regarded internationally for its quality and relevant academic curriculum and is designed to prepare and equip students to meet the new challenges of a dynamic knowledge- based economy. With political stability and a conducive study environment, Singapore is an ideal place to gain an internationally recognised educational qualification. Cosmopolitan City Singapore is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, positioned at the heart of Asia, where East meets West. The nation’s rich multicultural heritage is highlighted through the various ethnic groups (Chinese, Malays, Indians & Eurasians) living together harmoniously who have gradually acquired a distinct identity as Singaporeans whilst still maintaining each race’s traditional practices, customs and festivals. In addition, more than 90,000 professional expatriates live and work in Singapore, bringing their unique cultures and perspectives to add colour and vibrancy to cosmopolitan Singapore. 30-0947 UOW BSC(hons) BFBIBW.indd 2 8/19/10 6:23 PM

The number of students, from all over the world, pursuing University of Wales degrees is around 70,000, and their studies cover a wide range of subjects.
