Why Choose Singapore?
Living and Education Costs
As the fourth most expensive city in the world for expatriates to live in, the standard of living in Singapore is quite naturally one of the highest in the world as well with an estimated average of $750 to $2,000 spent by international students monthly on living expenses.
Apart from tuition fees at international schools in Singapore which typically fall within the range of $18,000 to $36,000 annually, home rental and transportation (if you choose to buy a car) will be your biggest expense. However, transportation costs can be decreased drastically by sticking to public transport – such as buses and trains – which are readily available and extremely convenient. Dining options in Singapore are plentiful, a meal at a hawker centre or food court can easily cost as little as $4, while more upscale restaurants spanning a variety of cuisines cost upwards of $20 per meal.
