Discover Studying Abroad



  • Between my second and final years of university, I packed an unbelievably huge suitcase and flew four thousand miles away from home to the city of Vancouver, Canada. It was the most terrifying thing Ive ever done, especially as I was doing it alone, leaving behind my family and friends with only Skype and messaging to keep in touch.
  • 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.

  • 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 Singapores 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. Thats how books in Singapore travel. I have tried it. It works just the way I thought and heard it would!

    At only 21 years old, Malala Yousafzai has already co-authored a bestselling biography, started her own non-profit and earned a Nobel prize. Yousafzai was involved in activism from an early age. Under a pseudonym, she wrote for a blog for the BBC, describing her life under the Taliban regime.

    Like her father, she also spoke on Pakistani television channels and worked with NGOs to push the issue of educating girls. This unapologetic approach to activism made her the subject of a documentary and recipient of the International Childrens Peace Prize at age 14. It also made her the target of the Taliban, who shot her and two other girls on the way back from a school examination. Her remarkable story gained widespread international attention, with celebrities and politicians alike offering to help with her treatment. Even today, Yousafzai continues to campaign for education around the world, along with studying Philosophy at Oxford University. This Malala day, we bring you five inspirational quotes that display the grit, courage and compassion that makes her the inspiring figure she is.
