The environment at IMSC is very hospitable and encouraging. With their wealth of experience, the academic lecturers are able to conduct the class in a very engaging and stimulating manner.

As an international student, I was a stranger when I first arrived in Singapore. With the relentless support and help from our devoted teachers, I was able to adapt to the new environment. The teachers' guidance and mentoring motivated me to work harder for my future. Moreover, the college provides me with the opportunities to promote creativity and forging bonds between classmates through activities and school events. The knowledge I gained here goes far beyond classroom learning and can be applied to my life later on.
The college experience at IMSC is a time of significant change for us international students as it is a stepping stone to the next stage of our lives. It is a time where most students are developing to become better and independent individuals. Amid all these challenges, the IMSC's staff and lecturers helped to open my mind and directed me towards reaching my personal goals.
