Visas and international requirements in Singapore

To join us, students must have a valid Dependent Pass, Immigration Exemption Order, or Permanent Residency in Singapore. Unfortunately, students cannot study at Dover Court on a student pass.

 

Singaporean citizens also need to receive Compulsory Education Exemption from the Ministry of Education.

 

Year group placement

Experience tells us that children learn best in their age appropriate year groups. Within each age bracket, we offer three differentiated pathways, ensuring every child is stretched and supported in the right way.

 

Education system comparison

Schools and curriculums across the world can label their year groups differently. Take a look at our comparison of British and international education systems.
