If I study dentistry overseas, is it harder to find internships or jobs next time?

Im thinking of studying dentistry in australia because NUS rejected me. I’m worried because it seems to be disadvantageous if I return to singapore for internships or jobs in the future? Is this field very competitive? Can I still secure a job next time? What are some challenges faced as an overseas dental student returning to singapore for work?

Hi Aly, Yes dentistry in the private sector is becoming very very competitive. You will likely still be able to secure a job as a Singaporean, but as a foreign trained grad, you may not be familiar with some of the local practices, so it may be better for you to take on a job in the public sector, before joining private.

You can try to find an internship abroad.

Do you have any good methods to find an internship abroad?

The easiest but most expensive way to find an internship abroad is to use a for-profit company who will organize an international internship for you, for a fee. I would not recommend this method to most people, because essentially you are paying someone for the privilege of working for free, plus you still need to pay for the travel, accommodation and everything else yourself. Be very careful with these agencies, as many will promise you the world but end up putting you in some small company in the hinterlands of Malaysia (yeah, I almost fell for that one).

By far the best method I could recommend is a non-profit organization called AIESEC. This is a global organization run by and for college students, which organizes international internships for both members and non-members. There could well be an AIESEC chapter at your university which can help you find an internship abroad. I was a member of AIESEC for a year, and can tell you the people you meet are awesome and you make friends all over the world. The organizational costs are very small, and AIESEC will provide you with a mentor in your destination city. The mentor will help you get your visa, pick you up from the airport, take you to your apartment (which they organize for you), bring you to your first day at your internship, and best of all, provide an instant network of friends.
