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.
