NUS and NTU means absolutely nothing overseas.
Try interviewing for a job overseas other than Malaysia, with NUS on your resume,
the interviewer always go "huh?" like it is from outer space.
That's IF you are lucky enough to even get an interview with a degree from NUS.
The rankings are probably more meaningful within the R&D or education circle.
Like mtunlinn said, these universities are the ONLY ones we have
so everyone either go these two, or go SIM
For the OP, if you have no overseas budget, i would say just go to work,
and if you must, get a part time degree. You already "wasted" 3 years in poly,
with so-so grades, no point getting into full time studies again and lag behind in the
working experience part.
Agree, some of the distance learning program from those UK an australia Uni here are probably more well known than NTU and NUS.Originally Posted by sandyforever
It is the media and the sch that make the student think that local uni are the world class
Maybe you would like to consider developing your own Life Plan before proceeding to do whatever you want to do with your life. Here is an article that i came cross from the net that i would like to share with whoever is starting a new career:
Career Planning: Developing your life plan
Many students feel the urgency to decide TODAY what they will be doing for the rest of their lives. Creating a meaningful career plan is not quite that easy. Having a profession is a journey that unfolds as you gain experience, skills and education. Where you start today, may not be where you end up twenty years from now. You may move the end point several times throughout your life and chances are your road will not be a straight shot, but a winding path of exploration and discovery. Approach the career planning process from where you are at in your life now, and know that there are no wrong decisions. Where you decide to go next will then take you to the next stop, then that stop to the next, and so on. Every experience you have is important to the one before. Your career plan is something you will start planning today, but will need to be re-evaluated and adjusted often as you gain education and experience.
Having a plan is important. It will help you make informed decisions with an understanding of what you will need to do during each stage of your journey.
If you want an office job, get it.
Your salary breaking barrier will depend on it.
Even if you're a network engineer, with CCNA CCNP etc, a degree is inevitable.
Part time studying requires a lot of disciplline, make sure you can do it. I did that a few years ago. Tiring, but I had my fun apart from all my salary going into studies (after giving to my parents)

hey it works! but by planning to plan you will gain expereience through it and ultimatly create the best plan.
Aniway I just share abit cos I am in your this current situation.
Dip in Engineering
ORD in Oct 04.
Secure a job 1 month even before I ORD.
Selling cams for a company and I end up selling till now.
Pay is okie. Ups and down down to commission. But theres a basic pay.
Last yr this time, I decided to study at SIM-UOL. Bsc in Banking and Finance
Seem like a bad choice to me probably is bcos of UOL style. 1 exam to determine your whole yr. But I choose it becos it fit nicely if i continue to work
But the good thing is theres only lecture, 3hours a subject for 1 week. 4*subject a yr
Everyday rush like a mad dog, 9-12noon lesson, 3-11pm work.
Really no life man. Hv to plan your time really well. So time feel like giving up also
No choice for me cos I quite old liao. and study more in sec sch
Think u quite young just after ORD. If your job have an organisation ladder for you to climb, i think study later will be a better choice, such thing is always about experience. Or save enough and study later work partime. Like mine always a salesman - no rank or promotion. But pay wise still attactive cos able to spend $ on DSLR
The Washington Accord does not fully recognise Singapore's institutes as well. (Still provisional)
Errr... by the way... you mean migrate to overseas and not to Singapore, right?

Such as, when you go shopping, you said you wanna buy a pair of shoes, but you dun know what exactly you want? With so many nice shoes in front of you, it makes you more difficult to choose. End up you bought nothing as you dun know which pairs you want. Too many choices, make the things more difficult. So set a target first before you go for anything. That`s my personal suggestion.
All the best, dude.

Yes get a degree part time since you say money is a concern
by the way learning doesn't stop there
i have 1 degree, 2 diplomas, handful of professional certs, and im studying for my advanced diploma and plan to get yet another pro certificate
i really believe continuous professional development (CPD) / upgrading / learning is essential to go ahead of the pack in the new economy
I think the most important thing is to have a positive attitude and to persevere to go for what you want to achieve.
As with many suggestions, work and save up since finance is a concern. When you have enough money, then consider studying part or full-time.
Be aware that if you plan to study in future, you will have a loss of income. This may deter you from moving forward. So set goals now and plan what you want to achieve. And review the gamplan from time to time.
Where do I go to get a great Education that provides information on ad Diplomas & Degree Programmes for those looking to pursue a photography education.
Weigh the pros and cons then decide on the best path. The govt says to ITE will even take in people without N/O levels. So, is a degree neccessary in today's society??
