A gap exists in the research literature as to why international higher education students from Europe choose to study in Singapore. This paper aims to make a contribution to the research literature by presenting the findings of interviews conducted with students from Europe studying at a large Australian higher education campus in Singapore. Findings from the research show that higher education institutions in Asia have become a viable alternative for some European higher education students to the traditional study destinations of their home countries in Europe. Factors influencing students' choice of study destination as well as reasons for their choice of a higher education institution are discussed. Based on the analyses of these findings, suggestions for future policy and practice are offered to strengthen this growing area not only in Singapore but also throughout Asia as well.
