International student with internship offer in home country

Postby sowicat » Fri, 04 Mar 2011 6:21 pm

Hi,

I have a complex problem. I came to Singapore for a MSc and have landed internship offers back in India (home country). I have a student pass and 4 months remaining in my course, as this is the dissertation period. My professor has agreed to let me do it in India. I am told there are some student pass laws that prohibit absence of more than 40 days.

Can anyone provide more advice?

Thanks in advance.

I am not aware of this. I am aware that once you finish your course, you have seven days to cancel your Student pass or apply of extension for next course OR extension to look for a job

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of this rule and am looking for something that does not find mention in most rule books.

If it is not there then it is not there

Have you rang up ICA ? Or ask your friend to provide one that he mentioned.

Chances are he misunderstood
