Students pursuing short-term courses in private educational institutions in Singapore are issued student visas/passes by the Government of Singapore on the recommendation of the educational institutions for six months period at a time. Extensions of such student visa/pass upto the full length of the course depends upon many factors which include successful completion of the first part of the course, fulfilling minimum requirements of attendance etc. and the discretion of the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA), Government of Singapore.

Completion of short courses in private educational institutions does not entitle a student for getting a job or an Employment Pass.

It is advisable that a prospective student make his own independent enquiries about bonafides of the institutions in Singapore before getting themselves admitted; there have been instances in the past when appointed agents or persons passing as appointed agents have not acted in students best interests in conduct, advise or guidance. The website of the Council for Private Education, Singapore ( contains useful information in this regard.
