Even when I was a young teenager, when I was about to exit from my school and tried to apply to Aussie school,

My principal said to me,

"Why do you want to go to Australia ? Don't you know their schools are worse than ours here ?"

That was said to me.

Anyways, I am bored with all these comparisons among the typical Anglo universities teaching in English language.

I only look up to top European universities, those which are very old, very historical, and very prestigious,

Such as,








My dream is to go there and take something related to linguistics.

That's great, I heard they just opened up a new linguistics factory in Changi

True enough. Although in paper conscious Singapore, not having the right credentials will discount you entirely even before you've begun.

I had the choice of employing a NUS graduate with about 5-10 years of experience or an O levels grad with 20 years of expensive recently. This was for a mid-level management role.

Needless to say, the sec4 guy got rejected before even an interview despite possessing excellent recommendations (from a background check) and vast experience.
Well I am not denying that paper credentials. The guy should know that O'Levels is not enough.

The problem today is many university graduates don't read enough books. They go to university and only know what is being taught rather than exploring the knowledge outside their domains.

And think NUS/NTU is the best in the entire world. Did you know universities like the University of Sydney have existed for hundreds of years in the free world.



I graduated from uni syd

Have you seen anyone who can do STEM and Arts?

If you seen him / her, this person will be high demand in the future.

QFT. This is especially so in local universities unfortunately. Everyone is so obsessed about grades, the joy and point of learning is totally lost.
