Education in Singapore for foreign students

Understand more about Education in Singapore for foreign students. Finding a school for foreign student, settling down in Singapore…

Option 1

Foreign students who are willing to study in Singapore Primary or Secondary Government Schools will have to sit for tests. Type of Tests

  • Qualifying Test
  • AEIS
  • PACT

After the AEIS, the Ministry of Education would make arrangements for the students to attend schools and therefore placement is guaranteed. The AEIS test is held annually and therefore the standard is very high and the chance of cracking the test is very slim.

Option 2

The foreign students whose parents are working in Singapore and are holding accurate working visas are not required to take the above mentioned tests. The working visas that the parents should hold are mentioned below –

Difference between the Two Routes:

Direct or Quick Entry to Singapore Government or Private Schools

We combine the search for the foreign students’ education in appropriate schools with our business / working opportunities for their parents and while doing so we take the following steps –

  • Arrange for our overseas representative to understand our foreign students’ education standard and their family background.
  • Make arrangements for students to come to Singapore for school visits.
  • Apply for the relevant visas for the students and their parents (if coming with their children to work or start a business).
  • Arrange the necessary tests if required or direct enrollment in school.
  • Once school and visa is finalized, we make arrangements for house rental or purchase.
