In 2009 I started my greatest dream journey of becoming an Aircraft engineer
in Sri Lanka where I learned my ABC in air craft engineering. Upon completion of
my studies there I was able to join with Deccan Aviation Lanka as a trainee
Aircraft Technician. I heard about Republic Polytechnic and I tried my luck by
registering myself for their scholarship programme with dreams of obtaining more
qualifications, better exposure in aeronautical field & equip myself with more
skills in the field of Aviation to make my future a brighter and better one.
After facing the entrance examination I was informed that I have been selected
as 1 of the winner of the tuition grant program to follow the diploma in
Aerospace Engineering at Republic Polytechnic. These tuition grants surely took
some of the financial burden off and expanded horizons of my career path.
At RP all the students are privileged to learn with modern education system
where we learn everything on case analysis basis & I find it really interesting
as we are getting the practical knowledge on solving real life problems and it
allows more time to focus on understanding our own pattern needed to find
success. Students from Polytechnic education background are highly welcomed by
the Singapore job market and students are being offered with exciting career
opportunities with attractive salary remuneration packages as well.
Finally, I should express my gratitude to Rivil Education Consults, who took
care of every single thing involved in this process from day I submitted my
documents in Sri Lanka and until I got my Student pass in Singapore. Rivil is
equipped with highly professional and service oriented but yet very friendly
team who will always take care of their students rather being just a foreign
educational consultant. I wish all the very best for the Students who are taking
the entrance test for the next intake and good luck for Rivil in their future
prospects as well.

Having the opportunity to study in Singapore, especially in a city where
students from around the world meet, Republic Polytechnic was the correct
answer to the question "which campus to choose among others." At Republic Poly,
students have the opportunity to be taught in small classroom sizes, which
gives the advantage of a personal communication between students and
facilitator. My facilitator gave too much care, something that I found great
for students coming from other parts of the world to Singapore. And all this
because of the support and guidance provided by Rivil International. They took
great care on all who were selected for the tuition grant through them. If it
was not them, I wouldn't have been able to do my diploma with a small amount in

Study abroad is a learning experience. Not only you get the opportunity to
learn about another culture and begin to see things from a new perspective, but
you also learn so much about yourself. You surprise yourself and begin to see
things you didn't think you had inside you. I have always thought of myself as
an independent person but actually living in Singapore showed me a completely
different side of independence which I had never experienced.
I was inspired to study in Singapore, by my desire to meet different people,
and to see the opportunities presented to me by an entirely new and different
multicultural country. Republic Polytechnic (RP) is known for its prestigious
reputation, and hence it occurred to me that it would be an ideal environment to
pursue my academia, whilst being able to make new friends and meet different
people from various ethnic backgrounds.
Part of what I love about my degree is the privilege of using all kinds of
facilities and resources available in all courses studied. The time which I
spent using these facilities has enhanced my learning experience by providing an
in-depth understanding problem based learning .Here at Republic Polytechnic we
have very unique way of learning which makes the students more confident,
knowledgeable and professional in our future careers.
And to come to this position I must always remember my parents and Rivil
International who gave me their fullest support. I got to know about RP from
Rivil International and from the first day onwards they guided me and everyone
who applied for the Tuition Grant from ministry of education in Singapore. Also
provided great support in meeting directors from RP and conducting seminars on
how the student life will be at RP. And not only that, Rivil International gave
us preparation training for the scholarship exam in prior hand. They trained all
the students who applied for the scholarship in a very meticulous way. I was
lucky to have found them and applied through them.
What I love most about living in Singapore is the standard of living, it is
very safe for students.
After my diploma I hope to apply for a university and I hope to do a degree on
the same subject I'm studying now. So, I can get more knowledge and learn to be
a good Environmental scientist like I always dreamt to be.
Diploma in Environmental Science (R29)
