Welcome to the ESSEC Asia Pacific campus! And welcome to Singapore for those of you from overseas.
We have published this guide in the hope that it will be useful in preparation for your arrival in Singapore, finding accommodation, navigating the Singapore landscape, as well as Student Life at ESSEC Asia Pacific. It contains (almost!) everything you need to know, from visas, how to choose a condominium, bus routes, the best nearby restaurants, shopping guide, the free attractions, which student activities exist, how to organize activities, and the do’s and don’ts
Singapore is a brilliant city, and once you get hooked, you will never want to leave. Tons of discoveries, experiences, memories went into compiling this guide. We hope you find this guide useful and enjoy your stay here in Singapore!
On Student Life, there’s an amazing array of activities that are organized on and off-campus. You are most welcome to participate in them and you are strongly encouraged to organize your own activities. This guide will be rather useful for the latter.
This guide would not have been possible without the initial groundwork provided by current and previous students, staff and faculty of ESSEC Business School. I would like to express our gratitude to them for making our lives much easier and providing the foundations for this guide.
