Student pass for my daughter

Postby Setiawan » Wed, 18 Dec 2013 10:09 pm

Hi All,
I hold S Pass with salary over 4K.
It is possible to bring in my daughter to Study in Singapore at Private university?

What should I have to apply, dependent pass and student pass or straight to student pass.

Please advised me you you have experience same as my case.

thanks
Sety

Suggest trying the student pass, first. The school will apply for you - you just provide the information. It's more reliable that way.

Thanks Bro for advised. I saw some posting that no need apply student pass if family member has already become dependent pass. Is it correct way?

i assume if your child has a student pass, he/she can keep studying here even after you are no longer employed in singapore (with a guardian)...

their moms/grandmas are allowed to stay in singapore, and i think work after one year (???). google is your friend!

If you can afford it :D should be the key ..

For guardianship, there are a few old folks doing full time guardianship and earning a small fee ..

From MOE

Guardian’s Particulars

International students are required to provide their guardians’ particulars to the school. The guardian should be either:

A Singapore Citizen / Singapore Permanent Resident above 21 years old, or
The parent of the international student if the parent is working / staying in Singapore

It is a requirement for international students to have a guardian when they are studying in local mainstream schools. The guardian is responsible to account for the child under his/her care. The guardian must be contactable by the school and any change in guardianship must be reported to the school immediately.

Since you are talking about studies at the university level, the rules about guardianship are not applicable.

Even if you get a Dependent's Pass for your daughter, you are still required to apply for a Student Pass for university studies. In some cases, for short courses, a Letter of Consent (LOC) is issued for DP holders for their studies.

The easiest route for your daughter (who I understand is not in Singapore yet) is to go the student pass route. After she gets an offer of admission, have SIM process the student pass application for her.

You can find all the information above and even more details in this document:

More information is needed before any guess can be made. Which university did your daughter get admission to ? and for which course ?
