Student Visas

International students are required to obtain a student visa to study in Singapore. Once you get your letter of approval, you will also be issued a visa by your institution. Within two weeks of your acceptance, you are required to apply for a Student Pass from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). You can check out how to here.

Language

Singapore has four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay, Tamil. As Singapore is a multi-cultural society, you can expect to hear other languages being spoken.

Knowing English is a must if you want to study in Singapore as higher institutions here mainly offer only in English. This includes written examinations, and course materials.

Communication

In major institutions like universities (NUS, NTU, SMU, etc.), communication is essential especially for class announcements, group projects. We recommend you to install WhatsApp and Telegram on your phone if you have not. If you are communicating with the locals, these two messaging apps are essential.
