While most parents hope that their child can study in one of the six local universities in Singapore, this may not always be possible due to a range of reasons.
For one, there are some students who are unable to produce the minimum results to gain entry into the local university and course of their choice.
Next, their child may be interested in pursuing a course that is not available in Singapore such as Veterinary or Psychology. (In Singapore, to be a practicing psychologist, you will need to have a Ph.D. to be a recognised clinical psychologist. Ph.D. for the course of Psychology is not offered in Singapore.)
Lastly, the child may be more interested in pursuing the course at one of the prestigious universities, as many of the well-known professors and experts are there.
As a parent, you would likely want to give your child the widest range of opportunities. In this article, we explore the cost of an overseas university education and how we can fund it should the need arise.
