Hospitality and Tourism
Singapore is a much favored holiday destination for people across the world. In fact, tourism is one industry that provides Singapore a major share of its revenues. By virtue of this fact, the stream of hospitality and tourism is very popular amongst the students moving to Singapore for their higher studies. Hospitality and tourism is a broader category that includes fields such as hotel management, resort management, catering services, and many more. Also, for the graduates of this stream, there is no dearth of job opportunities. Many students go on to pursue postgraduate studies in the field so as to gain specialization over a particular sub-discipline and increase their professional worth.
Business is one field that never loses its sheen. Singapore has some reputed universities offering courses in business management. Singapore Management University (SMU) is one of the many. The course hones the business acumen and entrepreneurial skills of students and turns them into successful business managers. The classroom teaching strengthens the conceptual clarity and industry exposure in the forms of internships and training gives a practical edge.
Psychology is another popular field of study in Singapore. The course is structured so as to inculcate in the students the ability to diagnose and remedy psychological disorders. This course is both academically oriented and job oriented in the sense that students can go on to conduct more research in the field or can work as counselors and advisors in hospitals and other institutions. Job prospects after the Bachelors or Master’s degree in psychology are quite bright.
Given the pace at which technological advancements occur in today’s times, it is no news that Information Technology is one of the most popular fields of study of our times. Singapore is a hub of high-class training in Information Technology in Asia. Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is a globally recognized and very well-placed institute for technology-related courses. The field is popular both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Students enrolled in a course on Information Technology are equipped with skills to modify and create new technological innovations, something which is required by every industry. Singapore houses many top-notch IT industries and thus, the job opportunities in this field are ample in Singapore.
Engineering, be it chemical or electronics, or biomedical, is a conventional and evergreen area of study. Indians have a particular inclination towards this discipline. It is for this reason that many Indian students move to Singapore for higher studies in the field of Engineering. The country has many universities offering this course and different streams of it as well. The job opportunities in this field are aplenty since many technically oriented MNC’Â™s have set up their centers in Singapore and are in constant requirement of a well-qualified workforce with a technical frame of mind.
One rather unconventional field of study for which Singapore is famous is Game Design. The degree in this field teaches the visual aspect of game designing to the students. Students, during the course of the study, learn how to design and model the entire structure of a 2D and 3D game and also learn the art assets from individual characters to entire levels.
