    It is difficult to say really - the UK chief mates can be quite a long course if you don't have UK training for OOW, but I don't know much about how the Singapore system works. I would get in touch with some of the UK colleges and discuss what exams you would need to take and figure out exact time scales before committing. As you say, white list COC's are considered of equivalent competency, so on that front there is little to choose between them, if you work in Asia however then a Singapore COC may be more useful than a British one. Why not ask some local shipping companies which one they would prefer? - at the end of the day it will be about which one your future employer finds more attractive than anything else...
