Asia@RMIT – Singapore
Singapore is an island city-state located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, lying south of Malaysia and north of Indonesia's Riau Islands. It was founded as a British trading colony in 1819. It joined the Malaysian Federation in 1963 but separated two years later and became independent.
Singapore has attracted the attention of a number of RMIT researchers, in part because of the University's significant teaching programs in that country. Studies range from a project looking at the experiences of Singaporean offshore students, to a project exploring the ways in which Singapore nationalism is maintained abroad.
