Courses in Singapore

Post by SMW » Fri, 19 May 2006 2:09 pm

I will be moving to Singapore this summer. I am looking for an organisation(s) that offer various courses. For anyone familiar with Hong Kong, something like the HK YWCA offers - settling into Singapore, arts & crafts (scrapbooking in particular), cooking, photography, interior design, dressmaking, etc. Any suggestions?

Thanks - had already looked at the YMCA but they don't have anything along the lines of what I'm looking for.

What other organisations do you know of that offer courses?

Not sure where you are moving from, but there a lot of great courses through the American Womam's Association. Try their website:

Cooking: Whot sorta dishes are you more inclined towards?
Photography: Whot sorta technique/s excites you? Black&White,Infrared etc
Interior design and the rest: Just a basic understand or you wanna go the whole nine yards?

Could help you on some leads but would help if you could elaborate a little more.

for interior design and photography, these institutes offer Diploma and Degree courses but the fees are quite high.
www.nafa.edu.sg
www.lasallesia.edu.sg
www.raffles-design-institute.edu.sg

For cooking, this institute offer Diploma courses.
www.sha.org.sg

Or if you dont want to take up diploma courses, then go to Community Centres etc. There are lots of it in the newspaper. :D
