LIFE SCIENCE PHD FROM NUS AND NTU NO MATCH FOR OVERSEAS UNI

As was my opinion in countless other threads of such nature, I maintain that Ph.D in life science especially from NUS/NTU isn't really useful despite what the government likes to say. Singapore, despite whatever, is not a research hub and probably never will be because we are small, our education system do not encourage out of the box thinking and simply because this is not a research hotbed.

Have u all ever been to the university campus of MIT/Harvard or Cambridge? Their very air sizzles with innovation. I am not joking. Have u ever been to NUS or NTU?In Singapore people do a Phd because they are worried that with just a life sci degree they can only wash test tubes, or they are attracted by the idea of a 3K salary not knowing what else to do. It's very different from other good research universities in the world where people do PhDs REALLY because they like to know more about something. These folks spend 7-8 years doing their phd without an attractive pay B/c they really want to learn from some really smart profs in an area they are really interested in.

NTU STUDENT BRINGS GUAN YIN GODDESS TO EXAM HALL, HOPES TO SCORE A+?

Reddit user uxilixu shared an epic photo of a NTU student who brought the Guan Yin Goddess to his exam hall with hopes she would bless him with good fortune to tide over the exams. Netizens speculated that the NTU student should have prayed to the bellcurve god instead of Guan Yin Ma because the Bellcurve God is in charge of his grades whereas Guanyinma was not.

NTU PROF SUFFERS MENTAL BREAKDOWN, TURNS TO SHOPLIFTING

A professor at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) pleaded guilty to shoplifting yesterday after he was caught stealing repeatedly from service stations he frequents. The professor, 55 year old Er Meng Joo, shoplifted items worth $453.35 between Jan 9 and 29, last year. He is a professor in electrical and electronic engineering, and had won multiple awards at the university.

The professor stole items such as air fresheners and toiletries from two NTUC FairPrice outlets at Esso service stations at Bukit Timah and Dunearn roads. Just what drove a top award winning professor, who probably earns more than enough to actually pay for his stolen items, to go around and shoplift? Too stressed until he suffers from a mental breakdown?

HR OF CIVIL SERVICE ONLY WANTS NUS AND NTU GRADS?

I am writing to voice my displeasure over some civil service HR department to what I feel is a very discriminatory practice. This is about the hiring of fresh graduates. I notice that the HR of civil service are only really open to graduates that comes from the NUS and NTU.

I know that NUS and NTU are the crown jewel of the Singapore education system. But, for those students who did not make it to the top two local universities, we still try hard to earn that degree through sheer hard work. It does not mean that if our degree comes from a private university, or a foreign university, or even the other local universities , we are less capable. Maybe it took us a longer and different route to reach the degree path, but we study just as hard.

I have just graduated from NTU in the second week of December (Unofficially graduated after my Final Year Project Presentation). I have heard that the economic is very bad, and it will only get worst for the entire year of 2017. Hence, I spammed my job hunting, and engaging in many job agency to help me to land into a job (I literally just spammed all sorts of jobs, as I am worried that I may end up jobless for several months, so unfortunately a year long).
