Comprehensive Pre-Relocation Guidance
OWIS Digital Campus recognises the importance of laying a strong foundation before the actual move. We provide comprehensive pre-relocation guidance, offering students and their families valuable insights into Singapore’s culture, education system, and lifestyle. This preparatory information helps ease the initial adjustment period and fosters a sense of familiarity even before students arrive.

We organise activities that allow students to explore and appreciate the rich diversity of the local community.

We offer a range of activities, including academic counselling, language support, and extracurricular activities, ensuring that students not only succeed academically but also thrive personally in their new environment.
Parental Involvement and Workshops
OWIS Digital Campus understands that a successful relocation involves the whole family. Parental involvement is actively encouraged, with the school organising orientation sessions and workshops to keep parents informed about the local education system and available resources. This collaborative approach strengthens the support network for students and their families.
Recognising the importance of a sense of belonging, OWIS Digital Campus facilitates community-building events and activities. These events provide students with opportunities to connect with their peers, fostering friendships that go beyond the classroom. A strong sense of community helps students feel at home in their new academic environment.
To alleviate the logistical challenges of relocation, OWIS Digital Campus offers advisory services to assist with paperwork, visa applications, and other administrative tasks. By providing practical support, the school ensures that students and their families can focus on settling into their new life in Singapore.
Relocating from one country to another is a transformative journey, and OWIS Digital Campus stands out for its unwavering commitment to supporting students at every step.
