NUS ranks the top 4th in the world

This is posted in the statestimesreview, ‘Singapore’s government university, the National University of Singapore (NUS) has been ranked by Times Higher Education at fourth position for having the most international presence in the world. Ranked by anonymous “international scholars”, the survey ranked NUS by the number of international students it accepts, international staffs it hires and international publications made. It is understood that NUS’s rule of reserving a minimum of 20% of its places for foreigners as a major factor behind the survey’s strong standing.’

Is this something to be excited about, something to be proud of, something silly to be craving for? More foreign students means lesser places for our children and more parents have to empty their saving banks or sell their homes to send their children overseas. More foreign staff means lesser Singaporeans are employed and in the long run the emptying of Singaporeans in the academia. Are these good for Singapore and Singaporeans?

Why is the govt spending so much money on foreign students, many on scholarship and big money to pay the foreign academic staff? Is public money being applied responsibly and in the best and efficient way to benefit Singaporeans? Is Singapore turning itself into a Santa Claus to foreign students and foreign academic staff?

What is more important, educating our own students, ensuring that Singaporeans become eminent academics or feeding the foreigners and educating the foreigners?

In a modern cosmopolitan city in the 21st Century when transportation and communication are so convenient, is there a need to have so many foreigners here just to expose our students to foreigners as if they are living in little remote villages and never seen or knew a foreigner before? So there is this compulsion to bring foreigners here to integrate will our hillbillies or kampong kids or they will become ignorant of foreigners and their cultures and thinking?

What should be the priority for spending taxpayers’ money?

Such title means nothing as long as its graduates could not make it to the rank of CEO in Singapore.

Who cares?..the Miws slogan - what's wrong with collecting more Ftrashes? & u die ur own bziness..in order to top up those who left Sinkieland as u can't ' kidnap ' these FTrashes that's use monies to lure these foreigners over to Sinkieland & in time to come convert these FTrashes to Sinkies & finally MIWs pockets suddenly fattens..Miws - who cares about Sinkies sacked, jobless, suicides, underemployed, kill or backstab one another or family man kill own pregnant wife or kid? Ever thing will "let's move on" & the 70% dafts voted for it ma.

hey u dumb sinkies. its about jobs if given to NUS grads and not about ranking world top or bottom. NUS has served the community in sinkieland for providing jobs to locals. And the training enable locals to find employments at industries, as engineers, accountants, medical doctors, and marketeers etc.

but the pap put campus jobs for foreigners teaching staff first. And industries rely on employment pass (then turns it into PR) to avoid hiring NUS grads.

Reason: hiring NS men has in camp training and ippt off. Hiring citizens has cpf to pay.

Who makes it possible for hiring foreigners: pap.
Who gets pap into issuing employment pass: U the dumb voters.
Me not dumb as m not in the 60%.

The retailers are going broke cause by the low salary policy hiring foreigners. The industries will also collapse when retailers collapse.

I watch how the policies kill sinkieland. So what it is 4th. It cannot even beat the industries like Asus or Huawei. They do not hire the top ranking graduates. U get the message?
4th ranking whatever are made by the angmor to keep their jobs going in NUS. U dumb dumb thinking it is objective ranking. It cannot be lah. Employers do not come here to hire the 4th ranking lah. They come here to make money. In sinkieland, they cannot make money due to high rental high coe high cpf, trapped by the high salary G and those on top. U are heading for bankruptcy if u do not change the voting habits. Your property will not increase in prices but reducing monthly, all created by pinky and companies.

"NUS ranks the top 4th in the world"

- so what?

/// Singaporeans do not need NUS to be #4 in the world to be successful
What is more important is that we get good jobs after leaving NUS.
If we cannot find jobs, what is the point?
We are #4, but so what?
That you can't eat it.
If that cannot give you a good life, a good job, it is meaningless. ///

Not just I say hor.
I just parrot what Khaw Boon Wan say.
If I'm wrong, please tell me.

More Than Beyond Common Sense

What is the use of a Local University, built and funded by local citizens' money, be ranked 4th in the World because there are more foreigners studying in the University? Because there are more foreigners employed as Lecturers, Professors and Researchers, instead of locals?

Isn't that OUTRAGEOUS to speak the least? Common sense would tell us that such a University should be ranked "Last" or at the "Bottom", and most importantly, be closed down for goodness sake.

If I had a say in deciding on such a policy of attracting more foreigners to deprive of local students' university places/vacancies, and employing more foreigners as Lecturers, Professors, and Researchers instead of local citizens, I would have condemned whoever made such an Anti-Citizens Pro-Foreigners Decision. I suspect the decision must have been made, or vigorously persuaded and influence by one of the foreigners employed at the top or senior post, or a foreign consultant or consultation firm, and ACCEPTED BY A LOCAL MORON.

It is not only beyond common sense, but also sinful, immoral, unethical and inhuman to make use of citizens money and get foreigners to deny, displace and replace them of opportunities and employment in their own country by their own leaders! Only a heartless, ruthless, senseless and weird person or organization would have done such a thing.

I pray it isnt 80%. I pray it is 99.99%, similar to Sadam Husin, s voting.

I watch how sinkieland go bankrupt under the dumb politicians. Got cheap things to choose and pick when they get 99.99%. Not Sadam type, i hope not.

Hey you are smart sinkie. Stay healthy to buy.

The Dragon Fly said...

I should have added above, it is a National Disgrace that such a LOCAL University, previously infested with communists and closed down by none other than the late First Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, be ranked 4th in the World just because IT (refers to non-living thing) has tons of foreigners being employed therein and studying therein. This is nothing but TREASON!

The Borad of Directors of this University should be charged for TREASON! And do jail terms for the rest of their lives!

Traveled pass a built new condo + commercial building because every shop displays a property agent name and number. The 2 storey ALL shops are not occupied. Not even one unit.

Buying commercial unit needed to pay GST. Wa lau, these people holding on to the units must be very loaded. I hope they are foreigners thinking they can trap sinkies to renting or buying for retails.

Poor fellows. They never analyze pinky s policy is to lower the salary until lowest, 1000 per month salary must wait for the whole singapore productivity to go up 1% before they can get increase in salary. How much increase? may be 10 dollars.

These properties owners can wait long long for people who might have saved up spare cash to start a shop. But then? Where are the customers to buy up the stock? Pinky s old man once said: that s your problem. spur not stuck onto the hides.
True. Sinkies deserve the waiting bankruptcy when interest rates go all the way up. spur not stuck on the hides for voting the dumb dumb onto stage, still refuse to give up after 50 years of being screwed.

Why they took in so many foreign students from so many countries instead of our OWN???

Long long time ago, a smart alec now already went to sell salted eggs or now enshrined in CCK Nirvana VVVIP Hall, believed that these foreign students upon graduation will either stay back and served Sinkieland.

Alternatively, those who returned to their home countries will feel obligated and spending time here be more or less like the Daft Sinkies when they held important posts in their home land will cultivate good relations with our sinkies professionals and obtain good business, governmental and other business.

Also, as Alumni of the same U, they are more likely to jell with one another.

Little do they know that these equally smart Alec s after getting all the benefits went back to their homeland where they are demanded more than us.

Many do stay and deprived our own to roam the streets.

Malaysians are street smart. They have the best of both world.

Stay as PR and earned SinS$$$ and NO National Slavery.

Then back to Matland with their SinS$$$$$$$.

Rent a temporary room in East Malaysia. GIVE KK address.

After withdrawal of Full CPF'S fly back to W MALAYSIA.

Used to take Pirate cab from Genting to KL.

In conversation with the Mr Cabbie, they all all praises for LKY and company for providing the opportunities for their children to stay and study all FOC.

Plus allowances. So you have even one guy who have so much time in hand to direct Blue Video of himself and his girlfriend.

Thanks to the Brilliant leaders and their daft suckers who paid for them and their Rulers got the credit of your backsides faces.

U have great memory. I cannot forget this guy fucked students in NUS law school office. He was paid as professor up to the last day he went to jail. Then someone found he and the girl was in love and not guilty of cor rup xion.

Can u imagine how tax payers money were spent on these creatures? sex creatures walking with 2 legs. Readers must vote out these scholars who paid the creatures then stained sinkieland s reputation. No one get sack for hiring the creature or giving scholarship to the sex video creator.

It is easier to deal with one smart ass than 1000 of them . Thus, voters cannot be smart else they will turn into opponents. Its best for them to stay ignorance and naive. Best jobs go to foreigners and lousy jobs to local is the perfect solution for a regime that want to stay in power forever. Killing smart ass have always been the act of ancient chinese emperors.

I think the first priority should be making PAP Ministers, PAP's cronies and PAP linked companies rich.
I think the 2nd priority is to make foreigners rich.

If there is any money left over, then maybe can consider to use it to help Singaporeans.

Hey u are not trained as much as me. Me layman lah. There is no certificate of fitness lah.

The Commissioner of Building Control will issue a temporary permit for occupation. Only upon the top, occupants other than the security guards guarding the building are allowed to stay inside.

That condo i said already had people living on top of all the shop units. TOP was already given months back.

U are dumb or u are druck both the same. No such thing as certificate of fitness in the act lah. Go to section 12 of the act. I dont bluff u, i can tell u which section, means i dont bluff u lah. Please dont use certificate of fitness to tell people in singapore when buying shop units, they will laugh oh oh oh.
