Halfway from the east and the west of the world lies a tiny island nation – Singapore. Originally, about two centuries ago Singapore was a famous trading post for the East India Company and it enabled economic relations between both sides. Today, Singapore has come a long way from being just a mere economy connecting node. It has a self-sustaining and thriving economy, it’s ranked as the most open economy in the world and has one of the highest GDP globally. Singapore isn’t just an economic powerhouse; it is also an educational hotspot. With its world-class and quality education, Singapore has established itself as a popular study abroad destination. This diverse little country is a foreign student paradise with currently over 50,000 international students from around the world.
