Singapore


Education in Singapore is managed by the Ministry of Education (MOE), which controls the development and administration of state schools , but also has an advisory and supervisory role in respect of private schools. For both private and state schools, there are variations in the extent of autonomy in their curriculum, tuition burden on the students, and admission policies.

The main language of instruction in Singapore is English, which was officially designated the first language within the local education system and Singapore's education system has been described as "world-leading".

Polytechnics in Singapore provide 3-year diploma courses. They offer a wide range of courses in various fields, including engineering, business studies, accountancy, tourism and hospitality management, mass communications, digital media and biotechnology. There are also specialised courses such as marine engineering, nautical studies, nursing, and optometry. They provide a more industry-oriented education as an alternative to junior colleges for post-secondary studies.
