A Life More Raffles

A DYNAMIC CITY The Raffles brand is born and bred in Singapore, a city of possibilities known for being a beautiful garden city. From a small, humble fishing village, Singapore has transformed into a vibrant city of modern skyscrapers and cosmopolitan living of superlative standards. Similarly, Raffles has blossomed into a global concern promising a life of learning that few others can match. Melding the best of East and West, Singapore boasts a unique blend of history and culture evident in the arts, architecture and food. Despite being a small country, one of the smallest in the world, Singapore’s commitment to free trade and her welleducated, highly efficient workforce have made the country a force in the world economy. Her strategic location in this part

of Southeast Asia has enabled her sea port to become one of the busiest along major shipping routes. Singapore is a multi-racial society with a population of five million people, where locals from diverse backgrounds and cultures live harmoniously together. There are four major races – namely the Chinese (majority), Malay, Indian and Eurasian. Each community offers a different perspective of life in Singapore in terms of culture, religion, food and language. English is the main language for business and instruction with the major ethnicities having each their own mother tongue. Singapore’s cityscape contains much for visitors to discover beyond its history, culture, people, shopping and food. To us, this is how we complete a life more Raffles.


www.raffles-college.edu.sg

TRANSPORT Singapore has a very efficient public transport system that is clean and easily accessible island wide. Public Buses The roads are well served by public buses, which cover many routes all over the city. It is also a very convenient and affordable mode of transport. Most buses are air-conditioned and bus fares range from S$0.80 to S$2. Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) MRT trains connect to all the major parts of Singapore and provide one of the most popular modes of transport. Train fares start from S$1.10 for a standard single-trip ticket. Taxis Many taxis ply the roads in Singapore. You can flag one down or wait at one of the taxi stands located at major buildings and shopping centres. The taxi meter starts at S$2.80 with surcharges during peak hours, weekends and public holidays.

15

ACCOMODATION Below are some guidelines for the various types of accommodation available to international students. The prices quoted serve as a rough guide to the cost of living in Singapore. Actual living expenses are subject to the individual student’s expectations of living standards and personal lifestyle. Hostel All international students are encouraged to stay in the students’ hostel when they first arrive in Singapore. The students’ hostel is conveniently close to the School and the rental rates are reasonable. Homestay Some families in Singapore open up their homes to students and welcome them as part of their families. Hotels or Service Apartments Depending on location and size, the cost for these residences can range from S$5,000 to S$8,000 per month. Shared Accommodation/Independent Residences Three- to four-bedroom apartments are available for rent from S$1,500 per month. Students can choose to live alone or share an apartment with other students. Lease terms are usually for one year or more.

Learning at the Speed of Raffles In design, ideas matter. In business, the speed in which ideas are formed and connected counts. At Raffles, we help you achieve ideas and speed with a sense of urgency hardly evidenced elsewhere. The programmes of Raffles College of Higher Education (RCHE) are designed to incubate creative professionals and entrepreneurs, real fast. They offer students expeditious pathways towards undergraduate degrees in the design, business, psychology, biomedical sciences and infocomm security disciplines within three years after their high-school education, and direct entry into one-year post-graduate courses thereafter. Taught by an international academic team, students are equipped with industry-relevant knowledge and the ability to interact with people of diverse nationalities so as to achieve career maturity at a faster rate.

RCHE offers four intakes every year: in January, April, July and October. Students are given the flexibility to commence their studies at a time convenient to them, while graduates can choose to enter the labour force at any one of the four windows in a given year. This only enables our graduates to maximise their employment prospects, but also allows them to better serve the ongoing human resource needs of respective industries. One academic year consists of four terms with 12 study weeks each, and a one-week holiday between terms. To us, this is learning at the speed of Raffles.
