About Scholarship

Singapore’s education system is divided into three subject areas. Institutes of Education—there is only one institute of education, the Institute of Technical Education – polytechnics offering specialized education and other institutes, like arts academies. Singapore has private and public schools and international branches of other institutes as well. It follows a European pattern for study timings; an undergraduate program normally takes three to four years to complete. While special programs, like medicine or engineering, normally take four years.


The postgraduate degree normally takes two years to complete, while some postgraduate programs, like a teaching certificate, can be completed in one year. A doctoral program takes two to five years to complete.

As a main hub for science, finance, and technology, Singapore has placed a strong emphasis on STEM subjects.
