With a rising demand for jobs in IT, a degree in the subject can open you up to a world of possibilities. The industry is even growing even faster in non-Western countries like Singapore, which has already seen plenty of growth in the sector but is expected to see much more in the future with the expansion in modern technology.

Many IT businesses from IT consultancy to internet access providers, software development to wireless network providers all run efficiently from their base in Singapore due to its booming economy and growing IT possibilities.


It is essential to equip yourself with a Singapore work visa before applying for any jobs either during or after study. A work pass for Singapore is usually easy to obtain and by building the right connections through networking during your studies you may find a job in your sector relatively soon after completion of your studies.

Businesses in Singapore are always looking for foreign workers to employ in their teams so make the most of the opportunities available to you when completing your studies.

In a country (island city-state) with such a booming economy based on Information Technology it should be one of the main choices you should consider if you want to take a step into your future career in the field.
