How to Obtain a Student Visa
International students desiring to study in Singapore will need a student visa. The good thing is that the visa application process is linked to your college application. All students admitted to study at a university in Singapore would receive their visa with their letter of approval.
Successful applicants don’t have to apply for a visa directly since it’s always issued with their in-principle approval (IPA) letter which is given by the institution. This letter works like visa and can be used at various entry checkpoints.
There is yet another document required for studying in Singapore namely: a Student Pass. You need to apply for it no earlier than two months before your course begins, yet no later than one month before your course commences.
Cost of Studying
The cost of studying in Singapore is very low as compared to other popular study abroad destinations like UK, USA, Canada and Australia. Be reminded that the cost of studying in Singapore varies greatly according to the University, course of study and duration of the study. You should expect to pay around $10000 for a 4 year Bachelor Degree program.
Cost of Living
The standard of living in Singapore is very high, so you expect to pay some high amounts for your living expenses. Generaly,living expenses should be around S$ 700 to S$ 2000.
