Singapore is an important centre for higher education, for both local and international students, particularly from the Asia-Pacific region. Singapore offers six public universities, together with a wide range of private institutions and branch campuses of leading foreign institutions, and the official language of instruction is English.
Applying with Cambridge qualifications
Cambridge qualifications are widely accepted in Singapore. As the application process to public universities is highly competitive, Cambridge students generally need at least four very strong Cambridge International A Level grades in order to be considered for a place. For some universities, students will also need to present SAT scores. As all programmes are delivered in English, an IELTS/TOEFL certificate may also be required, depending on the course.
Students apply directly to the university of their choice. University applications open in October but deadlines range from late February to April. Limited scholarships may be available for international students.
Please always check directly with your target institution and/or study destination for up-to-date admissions requirements and policies for local and international students.
