Hi Nothing Much,

To be honest, I am not aware of the colleges outside India, can any one please help me with pointers/information as to which one she should go for?

I'm not sure if your friend's enrolled into the course 2 months since your post, but I'd like to share my response with you, other fellow forumers can reference this if they've similar questions.

In short, my answer to your friend would be to choose NUS. Why?

1) Rankings and Accreditation -



2) Many scholarships programs

16 different scholarships that subsidises your tuition fees or pay for it in full

3) Top University in Singapore

NUS is the top Singaporean University - Singapore is globally renowned for its education system and focus on academics - the university is backed by the Singaporean government, and all the MNCs with offices in Singapore recognize an NUS degree as a prestigious certification.

4) Privileged Attachment Programs

Students in NUS get many opportunities to be attached to big global companies - a friend of mine who studied communications and new media in NUS got attached to Lucasfilm Singapore.

Many students from NUS Business School (it's where you get your MBA) get job offers upon graduation, they often go on to work in big banks, government organisations, Government owned companies - Singtel, Singapore Press Holdings, and many other MNCs with local offices here - Microsoft, Google, etc. An academic certification from NUS is very prestigious.

hi there. i made an account just to answer this. i'm a u.s. engineering student attending Purdue, and just finished an exchange program at NUS.

both programs are of comparable quality, so i would consider the lifestyle and cultural experience that both colleges offer.

NUS has perpetually sunny weather, and a beautiful living space on campus called 'uTown'. mainly Singaporeans attend, but there are noticeable representations from Malaysia, India, China, and european exchange students. food is great in Singapore as well.

Purdue can have some long and frigid winters, but i think your friend would have more of a cultural experience. Purdue offers the traditional american college experience with sports and parties and a compact red-bricked campus. there are many students from India, China, and South Korea (sometimes my engineering classes are close to 50% international student).

i think life is more enjoyable at NUS, but that your friend would learn more by spending time in the u.s. since it's a larger contrast from India.

hope this helps.

Hi,

A friend of mine has got offer from Krannert and NUS. She is very confused as to which one to finally take.

The fee @ NUS is about 20 Lacs and at Krannert she is getting scholarship of about $70,000. She would need to pay about 10 Lacks @ Krannert. She has already deposited 2 Lacks at NUS. Besides monitory factor, she is not able to decide which one of the two colleges is better.

To be honest, I am not aware of the colleges outside India, can any one please help me with pointers/information as to which one she should go for?

Many Thanks!
