Singapore is an island state at the Malay Peninsula's southern end. Once a struggling country, after its independence from Malaysia in 1965, the Lion City is now among the world's wealthiest and most economically stable countries. This island nation boasts ultra-clean surroundings, lush greenery, diverse culture, and world-class tourist attractions.

Apart from a strong economy and tourism, Singapore is also recognized for its remarkable educational system. In the recent "Academi" Rankings of World Universities," the National University of Singapore and National Technological University bested some of the world's most prominent academic institutions.

While the quality of education is second to none, the cost of attending university in the city-state has been steadily increasing for many years. If you are a college student looking for additional allowance, earning passive income is the perfect solution. From selling university study notes in Singapore to capitalizing on your photography skills, here are some unique ideas for earning passive income while finishing your degree.

Sell Photos Online

Do you have a talent for capturing images that tell a story? If your creative Instagram photos of beautiful places, landscapes, and people are garnering thousands of likes, then it is evident that you have an eye for photography. If you have several gigabytes of pictures, you can start choosing the best ones to sell them online.

Choose from numerous stock photography sites where you can license your images and connect with publishers, brands, and other parties interested in using your photos. Since most of the images in stock photo websites are Western, you may also want to focus on Singaporean themes. Doing so can make your work stand out, especially for Asian businesses looking for such content.

Turn Your Car Into Advertising Billboards

If you are fortunate to have a car, consider letting advertisers use it for their marketing campaigns. Many advertising agencies in Singapore are looking for private car owners willing to allow their vehicles to become "billboards," since this approach tends to generate more atten"ion than pu"lic vehicles.

Using your car as an advertising medium can help you earn as much as $120 a month, depending on the type of your vehicle and the position of the ad (e.g., whole car, passenger door, rear bumper, etc.). This guarantees monthly earnings by doing practically nothing. 

Sell University Study Notes

If you love studying and taking notes, you may want to organize all the study guides you have written over the years. Did you know that you can sell university study notes in Singapore? 

Thanks to the numerous internet note-sharing platforms, students like you can now make money from all the hard work you have expended in your classes. Think about it. You no longer have to exert much effort since your "product" is almost done. You just need to find "customers" who will patronize them.

Selling class notes "is convenient "isn't as long as you are sure that you have well-w"itten and detailed output. There are multiple websites where you can upload your work and receive a fee in return. Make sure to research each one to find a reliable platform that appreciates and knows the value of your effort.

Being a university student in Singapore is expensive. You need money for books, school supplies, transportation, etc. Hopefully, the discussion points above will give you an idea of how you can earn money without losing precious time for studying.
