France and Singapore have a strong partnership in terms of education. Singaporean have the opportunity to learn French from a very young age in the city-state, to pursue higher education in some of the French schools with a campus in Singapore, to get guidance and financial support from the French embassy through partner programmes so as to spend some time in the French educational system and to take part in many events with the French community. More than 10 000 Singaporean are learning French with 300 French teachers. Every year, 500 Singaporean students leave the country to study in France with the Campus France programme.
The mission of the Department for Culture, Education and Science of the French embassy consists in promoting French Higher Education towards students in Singapore through Campus France Office, supporting French & Singaporeans Institutions to develop academic partnerships and student exchange programmes, developing and animating the France Alumni Singapore network and promoting the French Language in Singapore.
