Discover Studying Abroad



  • If you're looking for unique experiences and a fascinating, under-explored culture, Japan is the place. Tokyo has an extensive, punctual public transport system connecting you to all corners of the country – mountains and beaches are just two hours away; life-changing food, the politest people, and almost no petty crime. A lost wallet will be returned with everything still inside. It’s still a challenge to get by when you’re learning the language. Don’t let fear hold you back!

  • Milano is a city of marvelous Renaissance art and architecture - with a history dating back to 700 BC. Modern-day Milano is fashioned around the Duomo (one of the largest and most awe-inspiring Gothic cathedrals in the world) and La Scala (the renowned opera house). Charming trams, pebbled roads, a bustling music and cultural events calendar, multi-ethnic cuisines, amazing graffiti, swish tycoons - you find them all here.

  • The city of romance, Paris, has also been home to some of the greatest thinkers of our time. Durkheim, Foucault, Comte, de Beauvoir are among the few that regarded this city as home. Nestled among the numerous cafes and museums lies the Institute d'etudes politiques de Paris (Sciences Po). More than 140 years old, it has traditionally educated France's political and diplomatic elite. It is located in the heart of Paris with the Notre Dame, Louvre and Eiffel Tower just a few blocks away.

  • I discovered a copy of “Tuesdays with Morrie” lying on a bench at a park on Singapore’s Tanjong Katong Road. I thought somebody had forgotten it there. Later, at another park I saw another book on a bench. Once people finish reading their books, they leave them in the park for anyone else to read. That’s how books in Singapore travel. I have tried it. It works just the way I thought and heard it would!

  • There’s a time in the year where men paint their faces, pull on brightly coloured stockings, bizarre wigs, jewellery and clothes borrowed from grandmothers. It's not some cross-dressing competition, but a carnival ‘le Carnaval de Dunkerque’, which occurs every February in a coastal town close to Lille. Even the ladies don bizarre outfits. Everyone joins the parade dancing across town, singing traditional tunes, carrying colourful umbrellas to catch fish thrown by the Mayor from his office. - Vidyun Rathore
