    Any SGians here have any idea how competitive the JTC scholarship or any other ASEAN-based Singapore scholarship? (Basically, those that are open to ASEAN/Foreign nationals to apply but work in SG after grad).

    Has anyone been to the Esplanade Theatre? I'm planning to watch Madama Butterfly in February but I'm not sure which seat to go for. My budget is S$68. I've been googling for more info on the seats, but nothing would beat the advice of a frequenter.

    Among the interesting sites I bumped into:

    SLO's Madama Butterfly Page
    Seats to avoid in Esplanade Theatre
    Views in the Theatre

    P.s. Does anyone know if I can get better discounts than the 15% 20% stated in the webpage? Thanks a lot in advance!

    Oh gawd, fellow Singaporeans and TSR forummers, I need some advice!

    If you have a place in both UCL and NUS for Law, which would you pick and why? Assume money isn't a factor.

    I'm comparing things like the teaching, student life, university reputation, opportunities after graduation etc.

    Thanks!

    UCL. Once in a lifetime study opp overseas. (perhaps)
    London life is great. You life in the heart of London. like pls.
    Same prestige as NUS. Same career opp also.
    Student life is more exciting from what I hear. More activities.
    Teaching I can't say much

    How about workload? I heard it's easier to get a first in UCL because the marking is more lenient and the students are less kiasu (competitive) than NUS. Is that true?

    Hey guys.

    About to complete my NS this year. Recently got offered to do BA (Hons) Photography at University of the Arts London (LCC) after passing an interview with UAL staff in Singapore. I'll be starting around september 2013.

    some opinions that i need:

    1) Where in London would be ideal for first time Singaporeans studying in London? (Most likely staying with my GF. Prefer a studio apartment with rooms of our own and a small living room-like area. She got accepted too)

    2) Any avenues that i can look at to lessen money needed to study in the UK? applicable for singaporeans. eg: bursaries, scholarship, loans, anything at all.....

    If any of you guys are looking for info on your universities / more info about the UK in general, go search for the Singapore Societies for that particular university. They will be very glad to answer any questions you have, and might know other freshers. Most UK unis should have one.

    ​Hi guys, wanted to know my chances at some UK universities for Law.
    Had taken 4H2s and got AAAB.

    Have a strong CCA background, with participation & recognition in Law-related competitions as well as internships.

    Got straight As during 'O' Levels with 7A1s and 1A2.

    Looking towards schools like:
    LSE
    UCL
    (Very strong desire for these two choices above)
    KCL
    Durham
    Any other recommendations.

    I understand LNAT is another requirement for some of those colleges but above that can my grades qualify me for these colleges?

    What other things are essential to boost my application opportunities?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Henderik,

    I am currently studying law in Leeds uni. I'd be happy to address your questions as well as questions anyone might have relating to other disciplines the uni offers. I may not know much about medicine and art history etc but I could try to link you up with other Singaporeans in Leeds.

    Before matriculating I had many questions too and it never hurts to know more

    I do recommend sending me an email at [email protected]
    Alternatively you can post your questions here but since its a general discussion page, it might swarm the posts.
    But if you choose to, you can always send an email too.. poking me to reply

    This is my second degree with the first one being econs at NUS.. so I know a thing or two about the pros and cons of local vs overseas.. you can ask questions pertaining to that as well
