What the Students About Raffles Singapore: 
"No placements..no good staff all they want is money. No professionalism."

"Money milking institution and poor customer service and staff...rank this college nowhere."

The Bottom Line:
Can be expensive! And not all the students are happy (especially about the Singapore campus). But if you're a native of one of these countries, it may be your strongest option. The Shanghai campus is particularly impressive: its students have been featured in Vogue Italia.
