Understand her concerns 1st then gather the info to address each of her concerns.

Problem solving 101, identify the issue the address the issue with a solution. One should not be cowboy start throwing solutions and hope one sticks.

Okay let me try. I also dont know cause i have talked some of the issues, but like how am I gonna explain the culture part and its just me where i want to try a different culture. Im not sure on how to phrase it properly to make it sound convincing. Like i just want to go to a different place and experience their life. Somewhere which is actually much more happier.

If can't enter Oxbridge, Imperial or Ivy League, better study local uni. You can do your masters overseas later.

U might as well state Local program has exchange program donít have to do full masters. Well not everyone is game to go higher degree.

Local uni means NUS, SUSS and those private uni?

Well if you cannot explain the case here, it will be hard making a case to your mum without knowing what is her concern. To make it worst ppl here donít know u or your mum. Say extreme case, you are a lady and has not shown her the past u are mature and responsible in all your actions. What u say is never going to change her mind. She just want someone to monitor and spot check you; or go to your help cause u always in trouble.

U can google for the advantage of study aboard and u find plenty of pages explaining trying to convince the reader. Try that read those and formulate your own approach to speak to your family.

i think first concern ur mum prob has is "if anything happens to my kid, at least we got family nearby"

her 2nd concern would prob be "Norway got good Uni there meh? Later go there study in unknown Uni come out cannot find job how?"

maybe she's also thinking - Oz is near SG, easier to come home.

try to address those concerns with her first ba.

How is being in Norway much happier than being in Singapore or Australia ?
