Fact: Singapore is a pretty great place to live. Here’s how to make life even better, from hassle-free banking to affording international school fees…
We all love Singapore for its diverse multi-culturalism, its global outlook, its cosmopolitan amenities, and its amazingly efficient infrastructure. It’s also got some of the best schools on the planet. Of course, life in Singapore ain’t cheap, particularly when you have kids!
Another fact of life in Singapore is that people are often coming and going; even for serial expats, moving countries is no small undertaking. Besides the big stuff like finding a place to live, settling your kids into school, and just generally learning your way around, there are also the “little things” that actually impact us on a daily basis, like getting Internet, or setting up a bank account.
There’s no one better than HSBC to support the international lifestyle of global citizens and expat families, whether it’s giving you a multi-currency bank account with worldwide access (including free international fund transfers and handy ATMs all over the world), working with you to find the best school for your kids or, once you’ve found your dream school, helping you figure out how to actually pay for it!
Did you know that HSBC partners with study advisors to guide families in understanding the school system in Singapore? Families can actually get a free consultation with globally respected educational consultants like Purry Consultant Services and Overseas Academic Link (OAL), which have decades of experience helping students get into both Singapore schools (local and international) and boarding schools, respectively.
These experts can not only explain the difference between local and international curricula, fee structures, and application processes, but they can also assess a child’s individual needs to help them find the very best fit for them and their family’s life goals.
Finding the right school for your child is a momentous decision, mama, but once you have decided, then comes the fun of managing school fees. HSBC has got you covered on this front as well. In fact from now til 31 July 2018, if you pay for your kiddo’s school fees via monthly instalments with your HSBC Credit Card, you can enjoy a promotional waiver on processing fees. Ka-ching!
Every little bit helps, amirite? Check out www.hsbc.com.sg/expat to find out which international schools are part of this exclusive promotion.
Whether you’re newly arrived to Singapore or you’re embarking on the exciting (but kinda scary!) journey of finding a school for your little ones, HSBC can help make your life in Singers more enjoyable, mama.
