The Singapore education market is dominated by the government sector which provides the bulk of all levels of education from primary to tertiary level.  The private education providers taking up the balance of education market with focus more on tertiary education.  Most private education providers offer their own certificate and diploma programmes and tie up with foreign universities to offer degree and postgraduate programmes.  The bulk of the programmes offered are in the area of business and management.  Local students tend to prefer government institutions while there is a large number of foreign students pursuing studies in the private education institutions.  Over time the government has tighten up the quality of private education providers and this has resulted in a consolidation in the private education institutions.  The focus of education also has changed from paper qualification to industrial relevance and lifelong learning.
