• Singapore Private Education Business

Private education businesses in Singapore cater to primary school and secondary school students alike, as well as both local and foreign students. The Ministry of Education oversees all such businesses in the country.

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.

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.

Can those ineligible to become company directors ever become eligible again?2020-06-25T11:29:34+08:00

Certain company directors who are ineligible may potentially become eligible again at some point in the future. Those who are ineligible because they have three or more High Court orders compelling compliance under the Companies Act within a five-year span will once again be eligible once enough time passes that the preceding no longer applies. Should those who are ineligible because of a lack of mental or physical capacity ever regain this capacity, they too will regain eligibility for director status.
