Before arriving

Life in Singapore

CULTURE

Singapore is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city and we take pride in our diversity. We have many interesting districts, each with its unique culture, tradition and atmosphere. Many people marvel at the beauty of Singapore and how far we have come from a humble fishing village which was home to just a small indigenous settlement to a modern and metropolitan country in just 50 years. Located in south-east Asia, Singapore has a land area of about 710 square metres and is one of the smallest countries in the world and in the region, earning it the nickname “The Little Red Dot”. Despite its small size however, Singapore commands a great presence in the world today, largely thanks to its free trade economy, its highly qualified workforce as well as its natural strategic location as a key port on the main shipping routes. Bustling with a harmonious mix of cultures, architecture, art and cuisine, Singapore is a dynamic city with a wealth of ethnic contrasts. So start planning your adventure now and enjoy this harmonious and cohesive tapestry of cultures by visiting http://www.timeout.com/singapore

SAFETY

Singapore is the world’s second safest city, after Tokyo and ahead of Osaka, according to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (January 2015) that looks at global urban security. However, please do still take precautions and do not leave your possessions out in the open. Whenever possible, always avoid openly displaying expensive items such as iPads, mobile phones and jewellery in busy public places. Generally speaking, Singapore’s streets are safe but it definitely pays to be aware of your surroundings, as you should be in any country. If you are returning home late at night, try to walk with a group. Avoid putting yourself at risk by taking shortcuts, carrying large amounts of cash or showing off your valuables. Vehicles in Singapore drive on the left-hand side of the road. Make sure you look in the correct direction before crossing the streets. Use the official traffic signals and obey the signs. When you’re out, don’t accept drinks from strangers or leave your drinks unattended. For more information on crime prevention, please visit: http://www.ncpc.gov.sg/

THE POLICE

Police in Singapore are friendly and professional and you will find them easy to approach, should you ever require their assistance. Dial 999 for emergencies. Please be aware that police officers and immigration officers have the right to search you if they have reasonable belief that you may be in possession of a controlled drug, an offensive or sharp object, or carrying stolen goods.

SINGAPORE LAW

Some laws in Singapore may be different from those in your own country, such as:

  • You must be 18 and above to purchase tobacco and alcohol
  • You should never buy or look after property that you think might be stolen
  • It is illegal to be in possession of any kind of narcotics (except prescribed medication)
  • You should not carry weapons of any kind

HEALTHCARE

It is compulsory for all students to have medical insurance coverage for their hospitalisation and related medical treatment throughout their course duration. Check out LSBF insurance and claim via website. However, please note that this is only a Basic Life Insurance Plan and does not cover clinical visits or outpatient costs. You are advised to purchase your own individual policy for additional coverage from one of our local Insurance companies.

RELIGION

One of the most exciting things about going overseas is acquainting yourself with a new culture. An excellent way to begin is to step into one of the mosques, temples, churches and synagogues located all around the city. Here in Singapore, the religions of different ethnic communities flourish harmoniously alongside each other. For a comprehensive list of all the local places of worship, please visit: http://www.newasia-singapore.com/places_to_go/places_of_worship.html

DISABILITY Here at LSBF Singapore, we recognise that disability can include anything from physical or sensory impairments, hidden disabilities or mental health issues. Please indicate to us your disability prior to commencing your studies so that we can make any necessary adjustments within reason to accommodate you.
