Some online articles have been selling a claim that there is a base 20% amount for remote understudies in our Autonomous Universities, a.k.a. public universities.*
Truth: There is no such minimum amount.
While having some remote understudies benefits Singaporeans (e.g., they add dynamic quality to grounds, and improve understudies’ worldwide mindfulness and culturally diverse aptitudes, which get ready Singaporean understudies for the worldwide commercial center), Singapore isn’t currently seeking outside understudies to satisfy any type of least portion. Despite that, the best colleges in the U.S., U.K., Australia and most nations have remote understudies in their admission; it is a vital part of being a world-class foundation of higher learning.
It is open data that remote understudies make up a little level of the admission at our state funded colleges. In 2017, when answering to a Parliamentary Question on the level of nonnatives going to our state funded colleges, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) Ong Ye Kung expressed that remote understudies make up just around 10% of the colleges’ aggregate admission. This remaining parts the case today.
