Hi everyone! A student of mine is moving to Singapore early next year. She would like to enrol at the International UNiversity of Singapore, but she did not succeed in finding anything about it on the web.

My question goes to everyone, being familiar with this Chinese area:Is there an International Uiversity based in Singapore and if so can anyone give me more information (phonenumber of students\' office/e-mail- address etc.)

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers to all

There is a NATIONAL University of Singapore Oct 25, 2002

(It\'s not Chinese, BTW, but an independent nation and an ASEAN member), and I didn\'t imagine 640 square kilometers would need much more; however, don\'t take my word for it, I\'ve only been thrice and all were short visits. But small is beautiful and very well organized, so I imagine the official information website could provide her the information.

Singapore is one of my favorite cities in Asia. I had a great time and had great food when I was there.

Imagine 5 cultures coexisting on a small island Oct 26, 2002

and you have the general picture. Like Switzerland, it puts up with similar jokes (like, why are there no night trains in Switzerland? Because if you sleep on a train for more than 4 hours, you\'re out.) Well, so far there is no Singapore International Marathon, and they say, if you run in a linear direction for more than 41 kilometers, you\'re out, too. That apart, locating any type of large educational institution shouldn\'t be a problem.

Singapore, yes -- but Malaysia even more so! Nov 4, 2002

There is charming Melaka, only a four-hour freeway busride way and Kuala Lumpur (\"KL\" as most folks say). It has SPACE and great beauties that remain off the beaten track to most Europeans (except Brits, now that they\'ve joined).

As for Indonesia, the Bali blast, so to speak, is unlikely to re-occur -- the trick there is TO GO TO places frequented by Americans (note that the target was full of Australians) although there are several nightspots chock full of Americans in the same neighbourhood! Ben Laden said \"Kill All Americans!\", right? So did Al Qaeda do that? It doesn\'t matter: Americans are simply not getting hit: so advise her to hang out in American hangouts, because Indonesia too is FAR TOO BEAUTIFUL to be missed.

Singapore is a wonderful platform for a glimpse of Asia in all its ethnic diversity, with strong European input dating back to the days of St. Francis Xavier. Send her off with a great big kiss and all your love and hopes for self-fulfillment!
