Frequently Ask Question
During the evaluation process your level of English will be checked during the written test and during the interview. We are looking for students with a minimum intermediate level of English. Once you have been accepted onto the programme extra English support is available. Living in Singapore exposes you to more English and the language of the school is strictly English. This will give you further opportunity to practice.
Homesickness is a natural part of living away from home. At Stansfield we have longstanding experience of helping students who feel homesick. Our pastoral care and induction programme helps students to manage homesickness and encourages them to adjust to living in Singapore. You will find friends from both your own country and other countries while studying with us even while you stay in close touch with family and friends back home.
The University of London Degrees are internationally recognised. In fact, over 30,000 students in 190 countries are currently studying for a University of London degree on the external programme. As you develop your career it may include international assignments or short term travel to other countries. Hence, a University of London Degree is a passport to career success because of its international value.
International students do just as well as Singaporean students. Many of our international students have earned distinctions and credits in the Diploma in Economics and first class honours in the degrees. In fact, one of our past international students, Ms. Li Shan first earned a distinction in the Diploma in Economics, won a scholarship to complete her degree at the London School of Economics (for which she earned a First Class) and is currently studying at Cambridge for a Masters Degree!
