Hi, may i ask the govt employed u as a division 1 or division 2 officer? From wat i know, if govt employed u as a division 1 officer, this would mean that at least they recognise UOL ext grads..
You may get employed but not as graduate.

Sorry to say that.

i dun understand this debate leh.........
for us who cannot enter local uni the only way is dl/go oversea.so if ppl say dl not recognise then we shld stop studying?

this discussion is quite pointless leh i dun understand.

if it's about whether gov accept dl,answer is 100% NO (maybe except mindef etc)unless u r first class honours n ace ur interview.

Recognition of Universities by Singapore Government

For graduate positions, degrees from universities accredited by the home government of the country where the university is located will be considered for appointment into the Public Service. The Public Service does not solely look at academic qualification when choosing candidates. We also take into account other important factors such as relevant work experience, past performance (e.g. track records), as well as personal attributes like leadership abilities. The relative emphasis on each factor and the criteria set depends on the nature and level of the job, and only the candidate who best fits the overall requirements of the job will be recruited.

http://www.careers.gov.sg/Useful+Links/acredit.htm


Edupoll.org
Another comprehensive and independent source of information regarding recognition of degree and universities offering degrees in Singapore can also be found on www.edupoll.org which provides independent and unbiased reviews of all universities and private education institutions operating in Singapore

In most cases, universities have more stringent requirements for local grads than international students. I am sure that international students in NUS/NTU/SMU go through different selection process than local students. Same applies for UniMelbourne, UniSyd, ANU and other universities where only the best local students could enter. It is not hard to imagine if the entry requirement for international students is made same as local students, there would be non of them left.
NUS/NTU/SMU is really no better than UniMelbourne, UniSyd, ANU, UNSW and others.

For those who can afford to go overseas to further their education, by all means go for it. Without the protection from their family, one would be much more independent. One would be much better in handling relationships with people, because they would meet and deal with people from all over the world. For those who are tired of the the SG life, going overseas to study is your best choice. This list goes on and on.

Generally oversea students tends to do better in life than pure local students because they live a more dynamic life, have better networking and more opportunities. For some people, it is not hard for them to realize that Singapore is not the best place place for them to live in.

For me, I choose less work time and more time with families than long working hours with unpaid overtime.

your analysis is base on OZ only? guess today when ppl think overseas is just OZ, countries such as USA/UK and Canada just cease to exist.
are uni in these countries the same as OZ... quality of local undergrad is far better than international students?
