Cup Where are the top study spots in Singapore?

Where are the top study spots in Singapore?

Top study spots revealed

SCHOOL CLASSROOM (AFTER EVERYONE HAS GONE HOME)



Photo: ST, Ernest Goh

Unless your school locks all the classrooms immediately after school, this is a great place to study.

There are no beds or television programmes to distract you from studying.

You are also likely to take the examinations in your classroom, so it's a good idea to get used to the surroundings.

Some classrooms have computers, so if you're allowed to use them, you can also do your online assignments or research. Finally, you'll spend nothing on transport, so you save money and time.


SINGAPORE MANAGEMENT UNIVERSITY (SMU) CONCOURSE

While SMU students may have priority if the place is packed, both the first floor and underground walkways have plenty of seating.

We like this relatively quiet spot, which is ideal for studying at the weekend. There are also plenty of food choices such as a food court or deli, within walking distance.

When you need a break, take a walk on the college green to clear your head.


SWIRL GELATERIA IN BUKIT TIMAH ROAD

Teenagers living or studying in the Bukit Timah area love to visit this place for study dates.

If you want to take a break, there are magazines and board games.

But you'll have to buy a snack:

$4 to $7 for a gelato dessert or $10 to $22 for the pasta or pizza. A little pricey.


CHANGI AIRPORT

The viewing gallery is a perennial favourite of students, for its quiet environment.

But wear a padded jacket if you're hitting the books at Terminal 2 or 3, as they can get brutally cold.

Avoid Terminal 1 as it is undergoing renovation.

Unless you camp out in a cafe or food court, there are no benches, so be prepared to sit on the floor.

Bring a cushion, unless you have a well-padded butt.


THE NATIONAL LIBRARY BUILDING'S SILENT ROOM


Photo: ST, Joanna Hor

The Silent Room is very quiet, as one might expect. The slightest sound you make, be it shuffling through your worksheets or asking your friend a question, will invite stares and frowns from other people in the room.

You might spend quite some time waiting for a seat too. But if you do get a place, and like the hear-a-pin-drop atmosphere, then it's the study place for you.

Bear in mind that you'll probably spend more time waiting for a seat than you will occupying one.


FAST-FOOD JOINTS


Photo: ST, Melissa Sim

Having fast food on demand to keep yourself nourished during an intensive mugging session might sound like a good idea, but it's not all it's cracked up to be.

Fast-food restaurants in busy malls tend to be filled at meal times - making it too noisy to concentrate.

One unspoken rule in a fast-food joint is that students are encouraged to give up their seats when other patrons start to fill up the place. This can disrupt your study session.

The only redeeming factor is the free Wi-Fi you can slurp on.


VIVOCITY ROOFTOP AMPHITHEATRE


Photo: ST

This is not a good place to study. If you are not distracted by the constant drone of what looks like an air-conditioning motor, the mosquitoes or the scorching heat, then you might be tempted by the shops.

This place is better suited for hanging out with your mates or bringing a date.

The good thing about the rooftop is that you can stay as long as you want. There is also free Wi-Fi and the steps of the amphitheatre provide a kind of study table.

the best would be either school classroom especially one with air-con!

library stinks! school libraries are too noisy, public libraries are worst, like a marketplace for discussion.

fast-food outlet is equally bad as well unless you're studying overnight at a 24-hour mac which could be pretty quiet.

i can't study after school in classroom... because school locks all the classrooms immediately after school

Plus I hate to study in my school Library.. so noisy!
Prefer the benches outside classroom..

food court also not bad.. although there are many people, but it much better than my school's library!

dslitemylove added 4 Minutes and 27 Seconds later...

Any everyday I cannot go home after school! 6pm everyday then was allowed to go back
have to tolerate the NOISE in school.. and do my homeworks-.-
now Im use to it.. even can do homework.. when the uniform grp's members are screaming... band practising.. etc

Harbourfront centre (NOT vivocity) 3rd floor food court is a great study spot too!
got soothing music, aircon, quiet environment (unless lunch/dinner hours), cheap and nice hawker food opposite harbourfront (at seah im food centre), no one will chase you out as it will never be full
