Out of 100 Singaporeans qualified for university, 35 have been deprived of places and given to foreign students. The PAP misrepresented by saying 20% are foreign students.
The latest university ranking exercise by London-based Times Higher Education (THE) has raised questions about the exact composition of local and international students in Singapore universities….
Included in the rankings is the number of international students in each university.At the NUS, the number stands at 34 per cent; while at the NTU it is 33 per cent.
From the numbers given thus far (from both THE, and Yale-NUS itself), it would seem that the number of international students in each of the three universities highlighted above exceeds the overall 16 per cent of such students as mentioned by Mr Heng in 2013.
