Staying on LTSVP can take language courses?

Post by dannysg » Wed, 09 Mar 2011 1:44 pm

My wife is staying with me on LTSVP. Can she enroll in English course in Singapore (e.g at British Council) or she has to apply for student pass?

Everything you need to know can be found on the ICA website, you should give it try!

I think you should try nothing to lose! If you can join a gym and other facilities why not a language course. I would say yes she can!

I'm assuming this is a part time course over a short period? A student pass is only require when pursuing full-time studies

If the course is something like 3 hours/day, 5 days/week over 3 months, is it considered part-time or full-time?

I would say part-time. If that's deemed as full-time I wish my job had those hours!

You best bet is to contact the British Council and ask them the question, or even the ICA. I would imagine it will be ok to do the course on a LTSVP.

Ask the course provider!
