The University needs to send a letter on their letterhead so that the university, its address, and its contact information can be verified. You do not send the letter. And there better be a name of a person on that letter that the ICA can contact if they want to follow up.

They need to provide sufficient information about you... your full name, your date of birth, the courses you are taking, and the dates of attendance so that ICA can be assured that the university is reporting about you and not someone else.

See... the ICA wants to make sure they are not being scammed. They want to know that the university is legitimate and not made up, or something that doesn't qualify as a uni for Singapore authorities.

They want to know that you are taking real courses at a real uni and aren't just abusing your PR by living overseas.

So... you give them everything you can think of to convince ICA that you are a legitimate student at a legitimate university. Anything less, and I predict you don't get a REP renewal.

At least ICA are giving you a chance. This means they haven't written you off for PR. Good info to know.
