Editor’s Note

P lanning your next academic move? We understand how difficult it can be. There is a dizzying array of institutions in Singapore – both public and private – to choose from, all of which have made promises to deliver. Feelings of apprehension and uncertainty are bound to arise!

To assist you in your decision-making, we have thoughtfully put together this edition of the Higher Education magazine. Within these pages you will find stories of individuals who were in your shoes once – overwhelmed, confused, but raring to step into university. They share their thoughts when they were weighing their higher education options, and their motivations towards their field of study.

At this point, we’d also like to highlight that You Only Live Once, and you also only undergo university once. So do more than just bury your head in your books. Start a new club, take on a student ambassador role, participate in overseas exchange programmes – I promise you, you would emerge at the end of your undergraduate journey so much wiser and primed for greater things.

With that said, I wish you the best in your pursuit of knowledge and life experiences. May you always have the courage to do what challenges you.

Have a great time at university!
