Meet current scholar Jade Oh

Pursuing higher education in an entirely new continent, and especially at a university like Warwick, has been absolutely thrilling. The gratitude and excitement I feel for having the opportunity to experience this cannot be understated.

As I prepare to go into my final year of university I have been frequently reflecting on where I would be if I had not been able to attend Warwick, all the life lessons I would not have been able to learn if I did not take the plunge to go to England for the first time and live and study independently.

Meet alumnus Chandra Prakash

I graduated from Warwick in 2019 with a degree in Accounting and Finance. I am now based in London and employed by KPMG, one of the Big Four accounting firms.

My time at Warwick has instilled in me the confidence and ambition to believe that I can achieve more. The skills I developed during my time at university have also benefited me greatly in the workplace. None of this would be possible without the help of the Singapore Scholarship.
