  1. For Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Resident students, the fee amounts quoted above are subsidised by the Singapore government (through the Ministry of Education, MOE) and are exclusive of prevailing Goods and Services Tax (GST). The applicable GST for these students is subsidised by the MOE.

    Students doing coursework programme on a part-time basis pay half the prevailing fees for full-time students (rounded up to the nearest $10). Fees are subject to change at any time. A late fee may be imposed for fees which are not fully paid by the due date indicated in the bill each semester.

    Students who are full-time staff members may apply for the staff concession on the tuition fees of government subsidised graduate programmes. Information on the staff concession is available at the NUS Staff Portal.

    Singapore citizens who wish to make use of the funds in their own or their siblings’ Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA) to pay for their NUS fees must complete the PSEA Standing Order Form and submit to the Registrar’s Office. For more details on the PSEA scheme for graduate students, please refer to here.

  1. With effect from AY 2016-2017 intake, the prevailing GST (currently 7%) on the fees payable will be borne by International Students. The fees amounts quoted are inclusive of the prevailing GST.

  1. Students who are not in receipt of MOE Subsidy will have to pay the non-subsidised fee amounts as quoted above (which are inclusive of the prevailing GST).

  1. The University may deem it feasible, based on industry demand, to implement a Service Obligation (in some MOE-subsidised programmes) for International Students. International Students who are eligible and have signed the Service Obligation Agreement will pay reduced tuition fees. The amount of fees payable will be reflected in their individual student bill. The determination of this feasibility is at the sole discretion of the University.

  1. Students who have previously enjoyed government subsidy or sponsorship by a Singapore government agency (such as scholarships offered by the Ministries, Public Service Commission and Statutory Boards) in a graduate programme will not be eligible for MOE subsidy in another graduate programme at the same or lower level. For example, students who had previously enjoyed subsidy/scholarship in a Masters programme and had attained the Masters degree will not be eligible for subsidy in another programme at Masters or lower level. For more details, please refer to the Eligibility Guidelines for MOE Subsidy.

    Students who are not eligible for MOE subsidy are also ineligible for some scholarships. For more details, please refer to Scholarships/Awards.

    Students (all nationalities) who did not complete an earlier graduate programme and are now re-admitted to another/same graduate programme within NUS or across Autonomous Universities (NTU and SMU) will be eligible for MOE subsidy only up to the maximum course duration for the new course less the number of semesters of government subsidy/scholarship received for the previous course(s).

  2. Students in MOE-subsidised coursework programmes who are Singapore Citizens and aged 40 and above (based on the year which the student turns 40 years old) may be eligible for higher subsidy under the SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy. The fees payable will be 60% lower than the standard subsidised fees payable by other Singaporean students. The amount of fees payable will be reflected in their individual student bill. Students who are not eligible for MOE subsidy are also not eligible for the SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy.
