I bet you love research and empirical evidences since you’re making a career out of it.


Start with this. Perhaps make your own tabulations and share findings with us.

Thanks for sharing the link. I guess the most difficult task here is to gather the data points.

Phd students love surveys no?

Also, note the PR seasonality. Bumper harvest right up to 2010-11, so you may need to exclude those who attained theirs during the bountiful period.

Salary is a bit on the lower side for a PHD. Too short duration of work in SG.

Try applying after your salary increases a bit more and after you complete 4 years of working exp in SG.

Your chances seem fine. Your salary is enough to support both you and your son, and you’ve been in Singapore for quite some time.

It is not just the salary. Pass type, quota etc will also matter.

Ahh, I didn’t see that she was on SPass. I assumed she was on EP since she has been working in SG for so long.

That’s the right mindset to have. I’m not sure the type of school your child attends will have any bearing on your application. At the very least, it shows intention to integrate into local society which should be looked upon favorably.
