COIMBATORE: Singapore has become a favourite destination for higher studies for Coimbatore students, or so it appears. With the State board and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Plus-2  results having been declared, students who have successfully completed their school education are looking for apt places for their higher studies. Some of these students think out of the box and plan to pursue their college education aboard. Though students from upper middle class here prefer to go to the USA or England for higher studies, the prohibitive costs of university education in those countries is now making them to consider institutions in South East Asian countries as an alternative. And after students migrate abroad for studies, they also prefer to stay in those countries for better job prospects.  

 “In Singapore, most of the higher education institutions charge less tuition fees when compared to European countries. For pursuing MBA in Singapore, most of the institutions collect Rs 5 lakh as tuition fee per annum. But, the leading colleges in Coimbatore are collecting Rs 6 lakh as a tuition fee per annum. So, I have decided to pursue an MBA in Singapore. After completion of the study, I can get a job in Singapore with thesalary of Rs 1.2 lakh per month.” said S.Keerthana of Saravananpatti, Coimbatore, pursing MBA at the ‘Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS)’.

 

“To get a work permit from Singapore is easier, when compared to European countries. The institutions in Singapore allow their students to apply for jobs in the final semester. If the students are good enough, they will get the jobs before completion of the course in Singapore,” said Aishwarya Saravanan of Ram Nagar Coimbatore, an MBA student from MDIS.

“Singapore has always been at the forefront of education and ranks as one of the top destinations in the world for academic excellence. The republic has been attracting global talents with its stable economy, reputation in the global financial market, as well as its top two position in ‘Safe Cities Index 2015’. So, the students from Coimbatore are now selecting Singapore as a favourite destination for higher studies,” says K.V. Ashok, an educational consultant at ‘Abroad higher studies’.
