For international students who are offered full-time study with the Institute, they will be issued Student Pass by the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) in order to remain in Singapore throughout the course of study. The issuance of the Student Pass is subject to the medical clearance of the international students.
The ICA does not issue Student Pass for part-time programmes. An international student who wishes to pursue the part-time programme must have either a valid Employment Pass or Dependent Pass from ICA to reside in Singapore throughout the course of study. If the validity of the Employment Pass or Dependent Pass expired before the student can complete the part-time programme, the Institute will have to withdraw him/her from the programme as he/she does not have a valid pass to stay on in Singapore.
In addition, passport holders of countries such as China and India must have a valid visa before entering Singapore.
