The study and life of APSB

The heart of Asia lies Singapore.

APSB-with our university at its core-has been consistently ranked as one of the most liveable and affordable urban countries in the world*.

Despite a growing population of 5.8 million, it has abundant green areas and minimal traffic jams, making travel including walking and cycling safe, enjoyable and easy. It is home to a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, entertainment venues and festivals. For example, during February and March, the city hosts world-renowned cultural events.

Singapore is also well-known for its high-quality ports and free financial areas, beautiful scenery such as Sentosa Island and Asian Civilization Museum, Merlion Park, the amazing and technologically important Universal Studios Singapore and the iconic Singapore Huaba Mountain.
