Rejected S Pass followed by Student Pass Application

Postby firnasz » Mon, 21 Dec 2009 11:02 pm

As mentioned in the title of this thread, during this year two of my S Pass Applications for two different companies got rejected. I have a degree and 2 years relevant experience and I'm from Sri Lanka. Since I could not enter into Singapore with S Pass, I would like to do my higher studies in Singapore next year.

My question is, will there be a problem to my Student Pass application since there were 2 rejected S Pass application of mine?

Replies highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Usually you apply to the university first. Once the uni makes you an offer and you accept it, then you apply for the student pass. In some cases your uni may do this on your behalf, or assist you with it.

If you have been accepted by NUS, NTU, or SMU then you will probably have few difficulties getting a student pass.

There are also a lot of private colleges, but I have not studied in them. My classmate did and he was from Bangladesh, which he claims is one of the worst passports to travel on! So you probably still stand a good chance.

Good Luck! :)

Thanks WCS. I've applied to NTU and planning to apply private colleges as well.

BTW, may I know why I probably have difficulties getting a student pass if I have been accepted by NTU, NUS ??

Are all or at least few private colleges recognized as same way as state unis in Singapore?

the same probably applies for the other reputable schools (INSEAD, Chicago GSB, etc)

Ok. I'm sorry I didn't notice "few".

But is that mean, there is few amount of difficulty due to the rejected S Pass?
Or is it because of State unis applied student Pass.

My question is, Are there any relationships between Student Pass application and previous S pass applications? Is the rejected S pass negatively affects a Student Pass application?

Thanks for replies buddies.

And that, my friends, it the problem with non-native speaking English folks.

It means, that you shouldn't have any problems (but doesn't mean it couldn't happen) so, 'you should have (very) few problems (if any). :roll:

As far as one affecting the other is concerned, each is considered on it's own merits. One is for studying, the other is for working. Two different things.
