Navigating the Singapore education system

Finding the school that best suits your child's needs is probably at the top of your to-do list after relocating. Here's how we can help.

Providing the best education possible for your child is an important consideration for most families, no matter where life takes you. So when a career move brings you and your family to Singapore, you can count on HSBC's education partners to help find the right school for your child. With every child having educational needs and requirements that are very specific to them, navigating the Singapore education system can be very challenging for both you and your child. This is where we can help, with assistance from our overseas study advisors.

We partner with overseas study advisors like Overseas Academic Link Pte Ltd (OAL) and Purry Consultant Services, which you can trust to provide sound advice on your child's education journey in Singapore. They will be able to guide you toward understanding Singapore's school system, help with assessing your child's needs and ultimately, determine which school would be a best fit.
