I've never heard of it, but there is zero reason why I should have. But I have a suggestion as to how you might guage their credibility. When I was exploring routes to doing my most recent long-stay in SG I looked into getting a student visa. From the Student Visa section of the ICA website you can pull up a list of accredited educational establishments in SG. I.e. if the place you mention is not on the list I'd query their cred. If they are on the list it would suggest to me that ICA consider them a serious organisation, rather than simply a profit-churning 'front' company.

Good luck.

p.s. Interesting list, and surprising the number of health & beauty schools in and around Orchard lol Towers! :-)

If you can get into any programme by A-Star you decidedly have a big feather in your cap! A-Star is government run Institute.

Go through one of their programmes and you will defo be courted by the gahmen here.
